CALL FOR CONTRIBUTED TALKS: British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science, 2nd--5th April 2012, Manchester, UK

The 28th British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science will be hosted by the School of 
Computer Science, University of Manchester, from 2nd to 5th April, 2012.

The purpose of 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.
This year, BCTCS is part of the Alan Turing Year, and will be collocated with the Automated 
Reasoning Workshop ARW (

Newsflash: PhD Student Bursaries are now available. Please see the
            website for details.

The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of theoretical computer science, including 
automata theory, algorithms, complexity theory, semantics, formal methods, concurrency, types, 
languages and logics. Both computer scientists and mathematicians are welcome to attend, as are 
participants from outside of the UK.

The colloquium features both invited and contributed talks. This year's invited speakers are

    Rod Downey, School of Mathematics, Statistics and Operations Research,

      Victoria University of Wellington. (LMS Keynote Speaker in
      Discrete Mathematics)
    Mike Edmunds, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Cardiff.
    Reiner Haehnle, Fachbereich Informatik, Technische Universitaet Darmstadt.
    Nicole Schweikardt Institut fuer Informatik, Goethe-Universitaet,
      Frankfurt am Main.

accommodation, you are advised to do so as soon as
possible: Manchester hotels can get very busy at Easter.

You can book easily and quickly by going to

May I also draw your attention to the fact that there are still PhD student bursaries available. 
If you are a PhD student, BCTCS will provide an excellent opportunity for you to give a talk. If 
you know of a PhD student who might benefit, please pass this information on.

I hope to see as many of you as possible in Manchester!
