Andrei Anatolievič Voronkov (born 1959)[2][3] is a Professor of Formal methods in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manchester.[5][6][7]


Voronkov was educated at Novosibirsk State University,[1] graduating with a PhD in 1987.[8][9]


Voronkov is known for the Vampire[4][10] automated theorem prover, the EasyChair conference management software, the Handbook of Automated Reasoning (with John Alan Robinson, 2001),[11][12][13][14] and as organiser of the Alan Turing Centenary Conference 2012.[15][16][17][18][19]

Voronkov's research has been funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).[20][21]

Awards and honours

In 2015, his contributions to the field of automated reasoning were recognized with the Herbrand Award.[22] He has won 25 division titles in the CADE ATP System Competition (CASC) at the Conference on Automated Deduction (CADE) since 1999.[citation needed]

Personal life

Voronkov is married and has three children. A son and two daughters. He lives in Bramhall with his family.
