ICALP/LICS 2015 is approaching fast and the very final version of the program for this event is available here.
A look at the program indicates the very broad coverage of TCS provided by the event. Apart from the presentation of 204 contributed papers (143 for ICALP and 61 for LICS), we will be treated to the following plenary invited talks:
Ken-ichi Kawarabayashi (NII, Japan)
Title: Digraphs Structures: Minors and Algorithms
Daniel Kifer (Pennsylvania State University, USA)
Title: Privacy and the Price of Data
Valerie King (University of Victoria, Canada)
Title: Dynamic Graphs: Time, Space, and Communication
Thomas Moscibroda (Microsoft Research and Tsinghua University, China)
Title: Incentive Networks
Anca Muscholl (Université Bordeaux, France)
Title: Automated Synthesis of Distributed Controllers
Peter O'Hearn (Facebook and University College London, UK)
Title: From Categorical Logic to Facebook Engineering
Luke Ong (University of Oxford, UK)
Title: Higher-Order Model Checking: An Overview
ICALP/LICS will also feature the following three tutorials:
Piotr Indyk (MIT, USA)
Title: Fast Algorithms for Structured Sparsity
Andrew Pitts (University of Cambridge, UK)
Title: Names and Symmetry in Computer Science
Geoffrey Smith (Florida International University, USA)
Title: Recent Developments in Quantitative Information Flow
as well as a "masterclass" on Algorithms and Complexity for Japanese Puzzles by
Ryuhei Uehara (JAIST, Japan).
The joint award session will feature presentations by Xi Chen (Presburger Award recipient), Christos Papdimitriou (EATCS Award recipient) and Igor Walukiewicz (LICS Test-of-Time award recipient). Christos will also reflect on 40 years of theoretical computer science during a special anniversary event devoted to the 40th birthday of the journal Theoretical Computer Science.
Note that ICALP 2015 and LICS 2015 are truly co-located events. The two conferences will take place in the same week and at the same location. There is only one registration fee and conference participants will be able to attend whatever session they fancy at either conference.
I look forward to this festival of TCS and hope to have enough energy to report on some of the events on this blog. (I am still looking for guest bloggers!)
