[DMANET] Summer School on Algorithms and Lower Bounds - July 6-9, 2018 - Prague, Czech Republic

Summer School on Algorithms and Lower Bounds 2018

The program of the school will consist of two tutorial series related to
algorithms and lower bounds. The problems addressed are related by
fine-grained complexity. The school will run from Friday to Sunday with a
follow-up workshop on Monday afternoon. The workshop is a satellite ICALP
workshop devoted to presentations of own research by selected participants
of the school. We expect the talks to include a fair amount of technical
details. The school will also include plenty of time for discussions.

Tutorial speakers

Barna Saha (University of Massachusetts Amherst): Algorithms for edit distance and related problems
Omri Weinstein (Columbia University): Data structure lower bounds

Date and location

Date: July 6-9, 2018, lectures start on Friday morning and end by the afternoon
session on Sunday.

Location: Sporthotel Brve Hostivice (near Prague, Czech Republic)

The follow-up workshop will take place at Charles University in Mala Strana on
Monday afternoon, July 9, 2018.

Organizers (contact person): Michal Koucky (Charles University).


We expect about 45 participants. A limited amount of funding is available
to support the stay of junior participans at the school. Interested
graduate students and postdocs are invited to apply to attend the school
by April 20, 2018. They should send their name, affiliation, status
(student/postdoc) by email to koucky@iuuk.mff.cuni.cz and arrange with
their supervisor to send a supporting letter to the above address.
