[DMANET] Workshop on Algebraic Complexity Theory

Workshop on Algebraic Complexity Theory - WACT 2015

Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany
March 16-20, 2015

On March 16-20, 2015, Saarland University hosts the Workshop on
Algebraic Complexity
Theory - WACT 2015.
WACT 2013 was held in Aarhus, Denmark.
WACT 2014 was held in Saarbrücken, Germany

Algebraic Complexity Theory is a classical subfield of computational
complexity theory.
In recent years, the field has been the subject of an intense revival.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together world leading experts
within algebraic complexity with
the aim of discussing the current state of the art and setting the
directions for the future.

Confirmed invited speakers are:

* V Arvind - IMSc Chennai
* Michael Forbes - Simons Institute, Berkeley
* Neeraj Kayal, Microsoft Research India
