[DMANET] Recent Advances in Parameterized Complexity

Recent Advances in Parameterized Complexity (see
http://rapctelaviv.weebly.com/) will be held on December 3-7, 2017, at Tel
Aviv, Israel.

The purpose of Recent Advances in Parameterized Complexity is twofold.
First, the event would present an overview of several recent, exciting
advances in the field of Parameterized Complexity. Second, to attract new
researchers to work on topics in this ubiquitous, vibrant field of
research, the program would also consist of a preparatory school at the
level of an introductory course. We thus invite both graduate students and
established researchers to participate in Recent Advances in Parameterized
Complexity. The program would emphasize the future of the field of
Parameterized Complexity, and the lectures would be given by the
organizers as well as invited speakers.

Central challenges and directions for future research would be discussed as
part of the program, and the Parameterized Algorithms book (
http://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783319212746) will be freely distributed
to interested registered participants. A symbolic registration fee may be
required to partially cover expenses related to meals and beverages.
Located at Tel Aviv, Recent Advances in Parameterized Complexity would also
include an exciting social event.

Organizers: Fedor V. Fomin, Daniel Lokshtanov, Saket Saurabh, Hadas
Shachnai and Meirav Zehavi.

Recent Advances in Parameterized Complexity is funded by the European
Research Council.
