33rd Conference of the European Chapter on Combinatorial Optimization

June 4-6, 2020
Saint Petersburg, Russia
https://ecco2020.euro-online.org/

Submission deadline: February 1, 2020

The 33rd Conference of the European Chapter on Combinatorial Optimization (ECCO 2020) will be held in the beautiful city of St. Petersburg during the white nights season. It will be hosted by St. Petersburg Department of Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

ECCO (European Chapter on Combinatorial Optimization) is a working group of EURO (Association of European Operational Research Societies) that provides an excellent opportunity to discuss recent and important issues in Combinatorial Optimization and its applications.

A special issue of an international refereed journal containing selected full length papers will be dedicated to the conference.

The conference budget includes a limited amount of funds for fee waivers for PhD students from Eastern Europe presenting their work.

2018 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory

June 17-22, 2018
Vail, Colorado
https://www.isit2018.org/

Submission deadline: January 9, 2018

The 2018 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory will be held from June 17 to 22, 2018 in Vail, Colorado in the USA. The conference welcomes submissions that are broadly under the purview of information theory or which use information-theoretic ideas/measures in its arguments.

The technical program committee this year has a large number of members from the theory CS community and welcomes submissions in theoretical computer science and adjacent areas that fall under the broad scope of ISIT.

There is a 5 page limit on submissions, which means they are either short results, or they are outlines of bigger results which would then have a full version posted somewhere. In particular, small cute results are appreciated. So ISIT could be a good forum for such results in TCS, while also advertising the problems, concepts, and techniques to the broader information theory community.

The call for papers and other details are available at https://www.isit2018.org/
The submission deadline for registering papers is Jan 9, 2018 and submitting the papers is Jan 12.

The conference also seeks half-day tutorial proposals, which should provide clear and focused teaching material covering new and emerging topics within the scope of the conference. Proposals for tutorials are due Dec 15. https://www.isit2018.org/authors/call-for-tutorials/

3rd Highlights of Algorithms conference

June 4-6, 2018
Amsterdam
http://2018.highlightsofalgorithms.org/

Submission deadline: December 12, 2017

The HALG 2018 conference seeks high-quality nominations for invited talks that will highlight recent advances in algorithmic research. Similarly to previous years, there are two categories of invited talks:
A. survey (60 minutes): a survey of an algorithmic topic that has seen exciting developments in last couple of years.
B. paper (30 minutes): a significant algorithmic result appearing in a paper in 2017 or later.

To nominate, please email  halg2018.nominations@gmail.com  the following information:
1. Basic details: speaker name + topic (for survey talk) or paper’s title, authors, conference/arxiv + preferable speaker (for paper talk).
2. Brief justification: Focus on the benefits to the audience, e.g., quality of results, importance/relevance of topic, clarity of talk, speaker’s presentation skills. Pay attention to potentially non-obvious information, e.g., the topic might seem out of scope, or the material seems inadequate for one talk.

All nominations will be reviewed by the Program Committee (PC) to select speakers that will be invited to the conference.

Nominations deadline: December 12, 2017 (for full consideration).

Please keep in mind that the conference does not provide financial support for the speakers.
