The Symposium on Simplicity in Algorithms is a new conference in theoretical computer science dedicated to advancing simplicity and elegance in the design and analysis of algorithms. The 1st SOSA will be co-located with SODA 2018 in New Orleans. Ideal submissions will present simpler algorithms for important algorithmic problems, or present simpler analyses of known algorithms, or offer insights that simplify our understanding of important computational problems.

Machine learning has gone through a major transformation in the last decade. Traditional methods based on convex optimization have been replaced by highly non-convex approaches including deep learning. In the worst-case, the underlying optimization problems are NP-hard. Therefore to understand their success, we need new tools to characterize properties of natural inputs, and design algorithms that work provably in beyond-worst-case settings. In particular, robustness and nonconvexity are two of the major challenges.

The aim of the conference is to celebrate the scientific achievements of professor Imre Bárány, a pioneering researcher of discrete and convex geometry, topological methods, and combinatorics. The conference will consist of invited 45 minute talks by prominent mathematicians whose work has special connections to that of Imre. The topics to be covered include: discrete and combinatorial geometry, convex geometry and general convexity, topological and combinatorial methods.
