ICE-TCS Theory Week in Reykjavík
We are entering a busy week of ICE-TCS events here in Reykjavík. After the very pleasant and inspiring visit by Jan Friso Groote, our Dutchman in residence is now Wan Fokkink, the co-author with whom Anna and I have written the largest number of papers. (Lucky us!)
Wan will be one of the three keynote speakers at the Second ICE-TCS Theory Day. The other keynote speakers will be Jan Kratochvil (Charles University, Pragua, CZ) and, last but not least, Moshe Vardi. This small symposium will take place on Wednesday, 31 May.
On Thursday, 1 June, there is an exciting and well publicized public talk of Moshe Vardi at 17:00. The poster for this lecture (in Icelandic!) is on the left.
I'll report on these events as soon as the dust has settled. Anna, Magnús Halldórsson and I will be repayed of our efforts in organizing them if Icelandic computer scientists will show up to these talks, and young researchers and students will be enticed to work in TCS by the stimulating research presented by our guests.
