It was wonderful to have an in-person conference finally. Thanks to everyone who participated in this year’s BCTCS.
Just a reminder that BCTCS 2022 is taking place in April in Swansea. The registration is open until 30 March.
ABOUT THE BCTCS
The BCTCS is an annual event for UK-based researchers in Theoretical Computer Science to present their research and discuss future directions. The meeting aims to provide an environment in which PhD students can gain experience in presenting their work, to broaden their outlook on the subject, and to benefit from contact with established researchers. The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of Theoretical Computer Science, including Automata Theory, Algorithms, Complexity Theory, Semantics, Formal Methods, Concurrency, Types, Languages and Logics.
SPECIAL SESSIONS AND THEMES – Explainable AI, Security, History of TCS, Teaching of TCS
There will be two Special Sessions during the meeting: one on Explainable AI, the other on Theoretical Aspects of Security.
Four of the Invited Speakers have been chosen based on their lifetime achievements in developing Theoretical Computer Science in the UK and have been invited to present personal histories of their fields of expertise.
At the end of the first day there will be a discussion event led by Barnaby Martin on the Pedagogy of Theoretical Computer Science.
BCTCS will also celebrate two important birthdays, John Tucker, 70 and Faron Moller, 60.
- Cliff Jones (Newcastle)
- Alexander Knapp (Augsburg)

- Adam Wyner (Swansea)
Happy 60th birthday wishes to Faron Moller from the Theory group!
BCTCS 2022 deadline for submission of contributed talks has been extended until 25 February 2022.
Happy 70th birthday wishes to John Tucker from the Theory Group!
We are happy to welcome Giovanni Solda amongst us. He is joining Swansea University as a postdoctoral researcher and will be working with Arno Pauly.
Giovanni was awarded 1 of 15 London Mathematical Society Early Career Fellowships, which provide 6 months of funding to fresh UK PhD graduates in math to spend at any institution across the world.
The University of Birmingham is hosting this year’s CCC 2021 Continuity, Computability, Constructivity: From Logic to Algorithms on 20-24 September 2021. There is a special session in honour of Ulrich Berger taking place on Tuesday as a part of this conference.
We are glad to welcome Troy Astarte to our Computer Science Department and the Theory Group.
We are glad to welcome Pierre Pradic, who is joining the Swansea University Computer Science Department and the Theory Group this year.
