Recent Advances in Algorithms School: St. Petersburg, May 22=?UTF-8?Q?=E2=80=9326=2C_?=2017

Recent Advances in Algorithms
International Computer Science Student School
May 22–26, 2017, St. Petersburg, Russia


The school offers the unique opportunity to learn about recent breakthroughs 
in several domains of algorithms: from classical areas like network flow algorithms 
and longest paths in graphs to recently emerged areas like streaming algorithms 
and algorithms for high dimensional data. The lectures will be taught by the leading
researchers in these areas. Each of the tutorials will provide an introduction to the 
area and gradually bring to the current research frontiers.

The primarily audience consists of PhD students interested in Algorithms. 
Bright master students, postdocs, young researchers and even faculty 
are also very welcome.


Michael Kapralov (EPFL)
Streaming Algorithms

Aleksander Mądry (MIT)
Graph Algorithms and Continuous Optimization

Ilya Razenshteyn (MIT)
Algorithms for High-Dimensional Data

Saket Saurabh (IMSc)
Longest Paths in Graphs: Parameterized Algorithms


The school is hosted by St. Petersburg Department of V.A. Steklov Institute of Mathematics 
of the Russian Academy of Sciences which is located in the very center of St. Petersburg. 
St. Petersburg is particularly beautiful in the late spring — early summer, the white nights 
season. The city is surrounded by wonderful tsar parks and palaces; an excursion to one 
of them will be a social program of the school.
