I Latin American Theoretical Informatics School
April 16-20, 2012 - Arequipa, Peru.

Web site:

Applications: Look under the "Application" tab in the School's Website.

This will be a first of what will hopefully be a series of Schools on
topics related to Theoretical Computer Science which are expected to
take place in conjunction with the Latin American Theoretical Computer
Science Symposium (LATIN). In particular, the first version of the
School will be co-located and run in parallel to LATIN'2012. For
information about LATIN'2012, see:

The School's objectives are to encourage attendance of Latin American
students to the LATIN Symposium, to expose them to recent research
developments, to give them the opportunity of learning recently
developed advanced topics, and to facilitate their interaction with
researchers working in and outside Latin America.

Target Audience:

Graduate students and advanced undergraduate students, in particular
those studying in Latin America.

The school will consist of 3 courses. Each course encompasses 4
lectures. Courses will be given in English. Students will also be
expected to attend Plenary Lectures and Special Sessions of the LATIN

The following is a preliminary program of the School:
1.- Keren Censor-Hillel, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA.
"Information Spreading in Distributed Systems".
2.- Conrado Martínez, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain.
"Applications of Analytic Combinatorics to the Analysis of
Algorithms: An introduction"
3.- Jorge Urrutia, U. Nacional Autónoma de México.
"Discrete and Computational Geometry (with Applications to
Routing, Clustering, and others)".

LATIN'2012 Plenary Speakers
1.- Scott Aaronson, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA.
2.- Martin Davis, New York U., USA.
3.- Luc Devroye, McGill U., Canada.
4.- Marcos Kiwi, U. de Chile, Chile.
5.- Kirk Pruhs, U. of Pittsburgh, USA.
6.- Dana Randall, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA.
