HALG 2022: Call for participation

I am posting this call for participation on behalf of Keren Censor-Hillel, PC chair for HALG 2022. I expect that many colleagues from the Track A community will attend that event and enjoy its mouth-watering scientific programme.


7th Highlights of Algorithms conference (HALG 2022)
The London School of Economics and Political Science, June 1-3, 2022

The Highlights of Algorithms conference is a forum for presenting the highlights of recent developments in algorithms and for discussing potential further advances in this area. The conference will provide a broad picture of the latest research in algorithms through a series of invited talks, as well as the possibility for all researchers and students to present their recent results through a series of short talks and poster presentations. Attending the Highlights of Algorithms conference will also be an opportunity for networking and meeting leading researchers in algorithms.
