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

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
