FOCS 2015 and KARPFest80
On Saturday October 17, the day immediately before FOCS 2015, the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing will host a celebration of the work of Dick Karp on the occasion of his 80th birthday. This event, which features a dozen speakers from across the spectrum of theoretical Computer Science, will also be held at the DoubleTree Marina Hotel, the same venue as FOCS itself.
