Announcement of the 33rd British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science

Dear all,

The 33rd BCTCS will be hosted by the School of Computer Science, University of
St Andrews, from the 26th to the 28th of April 2017.
The purpose of BCTCS is to provide a forum in which researchers in theoretical
computer science can meet, present research findings, and discuss developments
in the field. It also aims to provide an environment in which PhD students can
gain experience in presenting their work, and benefit from contact with
established researchers.
The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of theoretical computer
science, including algorithms, complexity, cryptography, formal methods, game
theory, machine learning, languages, logics and quantum computation.
Both computer scientists and mathematicians are welcome to attend, as are
participants from outside of the UK.

This year the colloquium will feature the following invited speakers

LMS Keynote Lecture in Discrete Mathematics

Professor László Babai, University of Chicago

Confirmed Speakers

Perdita Stevens, University of Edinburgh
Conor McBride, University of Strathclyde
Felix Fischer, University of Glasgow
Edwin Brady, University of St Andrews
Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh, Queen Mary University of London

Registration is *now open*, and you can find more information at the following
web address

PhD students are especially encouraged to offer a talk.

As an additional event, there will be a Scottish Combinatorics Meeting at the
School of Mathematics in St Andrews on the 24th and 25th of April. If you would
like to take part in the meeting, please contact the organisers directly.

The organisers hope to welcome you to St Andrews in April.
