BCTCS 2022

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.

Swansea to host BCTCS2022

We are happy to announce that BCTCS is coming back to Swansea next year. More details to follow.

Update on BCTCS2020

We remain hopeful that our conference will go ahead as planned. However, due to the uncertainty created by COVID-19, we are putting into place contingency plans.

Swansea University has procured a licence for a robust video-conferencing system (ZOOM) which we can use for the conference. If it becomes necessary, then a user would need to install this onto their computer. This system is free to install and use, the only cost is for Swansea as the licence holder. Of course, the computer would need to be connected to a webcam and microphone in order to participate fully in the conference – in particular, to deliver a lecture or to ask questions of the speakers.

Anyone who cannot come to Swansea due to the COVID-19 situation would have their fee reimbursed through eventbrite (as you won’t be requiring the catering). However, we really don’t want this to be an incentive to stay home; AlgoUK/BCTCS is first and foremost a net working event, so if it is possible, we are keen to welcome you in person.

We will keep you aware of any developments, and thank you for your patience and understanding as we do our best to ensure AlgoUK/BCTCS is as successful as it can be.
