STOC 2019 workshop and tutorial proposals

I want to draw your attention to the call for workshop and tutorial proposals for STOC 2019:

Important Dates

Submission deadline:March 24, 2019
Notification:April 5, 2019
Workshop Day:Sunday June 23, 2019

STOC 2019 will hold a Workshop and Tutorial Day on Sunday June 23. We invite groups of interested researchers to submit workshop or tutorial proposals.

The STOC 2019 Workshop and Tutorial Day provides an informal forum for researchers to discuss important research questions, directions, and challenges of the field. We also encourage workshops that focus on connections between theoretical computer science and other areas, topics that are not well represented at STOC, new directions, and open problems. The program may also include tutorials, each consisting of a few survey talks on a particular area.

Format: We have room for three workshops/tutorials running in parallel for the course of the day with a break for lunch. In addition, workshops or tutorials may be full-day (6 hrs) or half-day (3 hrs).

Proposal Submission

Workshop and tutorial proposals should, ideally, fit one page. Please include a list of names and email addresses of the organizers, a brief description of the topic and the goals of the workshop or tutorial, the proposed workshop format (invited talks, contributed talks, contributed posters, panel, etc.), and proposed or tentatively confirmed speakers if known. Please also indicate the preferred length of time (3 hrs or 6 hrs) for your workshop/tutorial. If your proposal is accepted and you wish to solicit contributed talks (which we strongly encourage), we can link to your call-for-contributions from the STOC 2019 page. Feel free to contact the Chair of the Workshop and Tutorials Committee directly or at the email address below if you have any questions.

Submission Deadline

Proposals should be submitted by March 24, 2019 via email to Proposers will be notified by April 5, 2019 whether their proposals have been accepted.

Workshop and Tutorials Committee: Moses Charikar (Chair)
