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.

Summer School on Algorithms and Lower Bounds 2018

July 6-9, 2018
Sporthotel Břve Hostivice (near Prague, Czech Republic)

Registration deadline: April 15, 2018

The program of the school will consist of two tutorial series related to algorithms and lower bounds. The problems addressed are related using fine-grained complexity. The school will run from Friday to Sunday with a follow-up workshop on Monday afternoon. The workshop is a satellite ICALP workshop devoted to presentations of own research by selected participants of the school. We expect the talks to include a fair amount of technical details. The school will also include plenty of time for discussions.

VeRoLog PhD School

June 1-2, 2018
Cagliari, Italy

Registration deadline: January 31, 2018

Owing to the presence in Cagliari of many brilliant researchers attending Odysseus 2018, VeRoLog will organize a two-day school just before the beginning of the workshop: Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd of June 2018. Four lectures will be given by Teodor Gabriel Crainic, Guy Desaulniers, Ola Jabali, Thibaut Vidal on different methodologies for Vehicle Routing Problems. The school will be introduced by Daniele Vigo.
