CFP: 25th British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science (BCTCS)
25th British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science (BCTCS) 6th to 9th April 2009 University of Warwick, Coventry UK http://go.warwick.ac.uk/bctcs SCOPE The purpose of the BCTCS is to provide a forum in which researchers in theoretical computer science can meet, present research findings, and discuss developments in the field. It also aims to provide an environment in which PhD students can gain experience in presenting their work, and benefit from contact with established researchers. The conference will consist of invited keynote presentations by distinguished researchers and a number of contributed talks. LOCATION AND SCHEDULE BCTCS 2009 will be held at the campus of the University of Warwick, in the outskirts of Coventry, UK. The campus is located in the "Heart of England" and is easy to reach from most places in the UK. It is also close to Birmingham International Airport, which has flights to other cities in the UK, Europe, and further abroad. The event will start on Monday afternoon, with registration from 3pm and the invited talk by Noga Alon at 5pm. The meeting will end with lunch on Thursday. INVITED SPEAKERS BCTCS 2009 will be enriched by talks given by several invited distinguished speakers, including: * Noga Alon, Tel Aviv University * Paul Goldberg, University of Liverpool * Andy Gordon, Microsoft Research * Jane Hillston, University of Edinburgh * Alistair Sinclair, University of California at Berkeley * Bill Wadge, University of Victoria REGISTRATION Registration is now open. The early registration fee will apply until 28 February. Accomodation on campus is limited and we suggest registration as early as possible. CONTRIBUTED TALKS Participants at the colloquium are encouraged to present a contributed talk. Please prepare an abstract using the LaTeX template and submit at the abstract submission page. The abstracts of accepted contributed talks will be published in the Bulletin of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 28 February 2009. FELLOWSHIPS The BCTCS steering committee has obtained ongoing funding to support the participation of upto 45 graduate students at BCTCS. The fellowships cover registration including accomodation and meals, but not travel. Students enrolled at UK higher education institutions may apply for fellowships by filling the online application form. Fellowships will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis to those PhD students who submit an abstract and commit to presenting a contributed talk (see above). Some fellowships may be available to students not presenting contributed talks; decisions on these cases will be taken in March 2009. ORGANISATION AND FURTHER INFORMATION The conference is being organised by Artur Czumaj, Sara Kalvala, and Steve Matthews from the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick.
