The 40th ACM Symposium
on Theory of Computing (STOC 2008), sponsored by the ACM Special
Interest Group on Algorithms and Computation Theory, will be held in
Victoria, British Columbia, Saturday, May 17 - Tuesday, May 20, 2008.
Typical but not exclusive topics of interest include: algorithms and
data structures, computational complexity, cryptography, computational
geometry, algorithmic graph theory and combinatorics, randomness in
computing, parallel and distributed computation, machine learning,
applications of logic, algorithmic algebra and coding theory,
computational biology, computational game theory, quantum computing and
other alternative models of computation, and theoretical aspects of
areas such as databases, information retrieval, and networks. STOC 2008
is sponsored by SIGACT (ACM Special Interest Group on Algorithms and
STOC 2008 takes place at the Fairmont Empress Hotel, located in British Columbia's capital Victoria on Vancouver Island.
