Avi Wigderson 60th celebration

On October 5-8 (right before FOCS 2016) there will be a workshop in Princeton in honor of Avi Wigderson’s 60th birthday. Avi is one of the most productive, generous and collaborative researchers in our community (see mosiac below of his collaborators). So, it’s not surprising that we were able to get a great lineup of speakers to what promises to be a fantastic workshop on Computer Science, Mathematics, and their interactions.
