Message from Costis, Yael, and Vinod:
ITCS is back in the east coast, and will be at MIT from January 11-14, 2018. As you know, ITCS is a conference that is unique in many respects: it’s a conference that emphasizes dialog and discussion among all sub-areas of TCS, facilitating it with a single track structure and “chair rants” providing the context for each session. Submissions, refereeing and presentations emphasize the “I” in ITCS: new concepts and models, new lines of inquiry, new techniques or novel use of existing techniques, and new connections between areas.
All in all, great fun! This year, ITCS will run for four full days with lots of activities. Tickets are going fast: the deadline for early registration and hotel block are both December 28, 2017.
A great tradition at ITCS is the “graduating bits” session, where graduating PhD students and postdocs give brief overviews of their research in advance of going out on the job market. If you fit the description, you should sign up here.
Following the success of the poster session at ITCS’17 and STOC’18, we will have one too, at the Marriott the first evening of the conference. To sign up, go here.
