Deadline for registration: 10th March 2013

The 29th British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science will be
hosted by the Department of Computer Science, University of Bath,

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.

25 fully-funded PhD Student Bursaries are available, covering UK
travel, accommodation at University rate, and full registration.
It is easy to apply for one. Please see the website for details. We
are grateful to the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research for
sponsoring these bursaries.

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

Susanne Albers, Humboldt-Universitt zu Berlin, the LMS-sponsored
keynote speaker in Discrete Mathematics

Samson Abramsky, University of Oxford

Assia Mahboubi, cole Polytechnique, Paris

plus a representative of Altran UK; details to be announced.
