A week in Bergen!

…to try to fix a marriage between distributed computing and parametrised complexity!

This is ‘working day’ 2 of my week in Bergen! I was delighted to be invited by the incredible Saket Saurabh to visit their world leading research department. The aim of this week is for me to give a series of lectures (one per day (1.5 hrs)! – I am hoping that my new postdoc Jonas Lefevre will take one for me 😉 on distributed computing with the aim to find intersections and possible  influences between distributed algorithms and parametrized complexity. I hope I have only a fraction of the energy that Saket has in managing his 12+ PhD students and postdocs 🙂

It’s exciting being here and looking forward to a really productive week!

 

 

 

My report on BCTCS 2016

My report on BCTCS 2016 held in Belfast from March 22nd to 24th at Belfast (QUB) is available at the bulletin of EATCS.

The 32nd British Colloquium of Theoretical Computer Science was held at Queen’s University Belfast from March 22nd to 24th, 2016. Here is my earlier blog post on the event.

I just noticed that my official report on the event was publised in the  June  issue of BEATCS (Bulletin of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science). Here is the report (click the PDF link on the page).

Here are some nice mug shots of the crazies 🙂 involved in BCTCS : Organising Committee

If you get the clues from the previous page: On to University of St. Andrews in 2017, and Royal Holloway University of London in 2018!
