Computer prize nominee receives award in Bulgaria

Date: 27.09.2005

Valentin Pavlov of the Rila Solutions software company was awarded Bulgaria's John Atanasoff prize at a ceremony on Tuesday.

During a special event in his office, Bulgaria's President Georgi Parvanov bestowed the honor to the entrepreneur.

The award was founded in 2003 for special achievements in the field of computer engineering.

Pavlov, who is Vice-President of Rila Solutions at the age of 31, was chosen among five nominees. He has developed linguistic modulation projects realized in Bulgaria, the UK and America.

The jury of the competition also suggested that Branimir Lambov (nominated by Microsoft) and Tsvetan Hristov (nominated by the Russe University "Anguel Kanchev") should receive merits of achievement.

The John Atanasoff award bears the name of the Bulgaria-descended man who invented the computer.

Atanasoff built the world's first electronic digital computer at US Iowa State University during 1937-42, together with his assistant Clifford Berry.

Their creation incorporated several major innovations in computing including the use of binary arithmetic, regenerative memory, parallel processing and separation of memory and computing functions.
