Here's an update on some of CATCS's recent activities, along with links to useful resources maintained at TheoryMatters:
1. David Woodruff compiled a list of major awards that are relevant to the
theoretical computer science community. Included is a brief
description of each, a link to the nomination instructions, and
examples of researchers from TCS and related fields that won the award
in the past. See https://thmatters.wordpress.com/tcs-awards-list/.
2. Shuchi Chawla is leading an effort to improve the quality of TCS
entries on Wikipedia. She has put together an advice document for
researchers who want to help and a spreadsheet where you can contribute
suggestions for entries to be created or improved. See
3. Ryan O'Donnell collected advice on writing papers for general
scientific venues like Science, Nature, and PNAS, from a number of TCS
researchers who have successfully published in these venues in the
4. An oldie but a goodie: examples of successful TCS NSF Career proposals.
See https://thmatters.wordpress.com/ and the affiated sites https://cstheory-jobs.org/ and https://cstheory-events.org/ for still more resources.
Don't forget that this year's TheoryFest is also the 50th anniversary of STOC! (Happening June 25-29, in Los Angeles.) See http://acm-stoc.org/stoc2018/ for details.
Finally, I always welcome your suggestions for future CATCS projects.
