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

June 18-22, 2018
Paris
http://geomschool2018.univ-mlv.fr/

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.

Optimization, Complexity and Invariant Theory

June 4-8, 2018
Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton
https://www.math.ias.edu/ocit2018

Registration deadline: April 15, 2018

This workshop aims to explore connections between complexity and optimization with algebra and analysis, which have emerged from the works on operator scaling. The hope is to inform participants from different communities of both basic tools and new developments, and set out new challenges and directions for this exciting interdisciplinary research.

The workshop will be streamed live at

23rd Estonian Winter School in Computer Science

March 4-9, 2018
Palmse, Estonia
http://cs.ioc.ee/ewscs/2018/

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
https://compsciclub.ru/en/raa18

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)
http://iuuk.mff.cuni.cz/~koucky/LBCAD/lwbds-school-2018.html

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
http://convegni.unica.it/odysseus2018/verolog-phd-school/

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.
