Software Tools For Mathematics

September 24-28, 2018
Koper, Slovenia

Registration deadline: September 20, 2018

We will start by two days of Software Carpentry training, covering the Unix shell, version control with Git, and programming with Python, delivered by Software Carpentry instructors. The GAP mini-course on Wednesday will be led by Alexander Konovalov. The remaining two days will be dedicated to other math-oriented research tools, such as SageMath and CoCalc (Samuel Lelièvre), LaTeX topics for the working mathematician (Nino Bašić) and contributed talks.

19th Max-Planck Advanced Course on the Foundations of Computer Science

August 13-17, 2018
Saarbrücken, Germany

ADFOCS is an international summer school with the purpose of introducing young researchers to topics which are the focus of current research in theoretical computer science. This year’s topic is *Fine-Grained Complexity and Algorithms*. The lecturers are Amir Abboud (IBM Almaden), Danupon Nanongkai (KTH), and Ramamohan Paturi (UC San Diego).

School on Low-Dimensional Geometry and Topology: Discrete and Algorithmic Aspects

June 18-22, 2018

Registration deadline: April 15, 2018

This is a one-week school devoted to low-dimensional geometry and topology, from both the viewpoints of mathematicians and computer scientists. It is aimed at graduate students and researchers in mathematics and computer science interested in geometric or topological aspects. This includes, not exhaustively, mathematicians working in differential, Riemannian, or topological geometry; and computer scientists working in computational geometry or topology. The goal is to foster interactions between these communities.

23rd Estonian Winter School in Computer Science

March 4-9, 2018
Palmse, Estonia

Submission deadline: February 19, 2018
Registration deadline: February 19, 2018

The main objective of EWSCS is to expose Estonian, Baltic, and Nordic graduate students in computer science (but also interested students from elsewhere) to frontline research topics usually not covered within the regular curricula. The working language of the schools is English.

Recent Advances in Algorithms School

May 22-26, 2018
Saint -Petersburg, Russia

Submission deadline: April 1, 2018
Registration deadline: April 1, 2018

This year, the school is devoted to modern trends in obtaining conditional hardness of algorithmic problems. In the school will learn about new developments in complexity theory which allow to derive tight bounds on the time required to solve computational problems.
