STOC 2012 started a new experiment of a workshop and tutorial day in the beginning of the conference. The program looks fascinating and I hope many people attend.
FOCS 2012 will have also have such an event on Saturday, October 20. We (Boaz Barak and Avrim Blum) are looking for proposals for workshops to run on that day. So, if you want to organize a workshop that day, please do visit the link above and send us a proposal by June 20, 2012.
Hope everyone enjoys the STOC workshops and please do start thinking of ideas for great FOCS workshops!
