The Swiss Winter School on Lower Bounds and Communication Complexity (10-14 February 2020, https://theory.epfl.ch/WinterSchool2020/ ) is the first in a series of annual winter schools in Theoretical Computer Science jointly organized by EPFL and ETH Zurich. The goal of the school is to educate top international theory PhD students about exciting recent developments in the field. The winter school will be held in Zinal, a mountain village in the Swiss Alps that has a long tradition of hosting academic workshops and that allows for nice excursions and stimulating discussions in a relaxed atmosphere.
This year’s installment features an exciting trinity of speakers: Kasper Green Larsen (Data Structure Lower Bounds), Raghu Meka (Communication Complexity) and Amir Shpilka (Algebraic complexity).
The application deadline is November 15th 2019, and acceptance notifications will be sent by December 1st 2019. The application form is available at https://theory.epfl.ch/WinterSchool2020/. Attendance of the winter school is free of charge and includes room and board (shared rooms).
Organizers: Michael Kapralov (EPFL), David Steurer (ETH) , Ola Svennson (EPFL)
