STOC 2017 Theory Fest will hold a Workshop Day on Friday June 23. We invite groups of interested researchers to submit workshop proposals.
One of the goals of Theory Fest is to create a vibrant ecosystem of workshops as exists in some other fields of CS, where workshops may even have their own calls for papers and poster sessions. The Theory Fest Workshop Day provides an informal forum for researchers to discuss important research questions, directions, and challenges of the field. We also encourage workshops that focus on connections between theoretical computer science and other areas, topics that are not well represented at STOC, new directions, and open problems.
Format: We have room for three workshops running in parallel for the course of the day with a break for lunch. In addition, workshops may be full-day or half-day. In your proposal, please let us know if you have a preference between full-day (6 hrs) or half-day (3 hrs).
Workshops Committee: Avrim Blum (Chair), Michael Kearns, Aleksander Madry, Luca Trevisan.
