I learned from Mihai Patrascu's blog that the US News rankings for 2008 have been released. The rankings for computer science, for CS theory, and for mathematics do not show any truly major surprises.
In your opinion, what are the best CS departments in theory outside the US? And how would you compare them with the top departments in the US News ranking? Perhaps more modestly, what are the best CS departments in TCS in your country?
