Upcoming deadlines

Two upcoming deadlines:

  • Simons Graduate Fellowships in Theoretical Computer Science.   Deadline May 1.  These are 2-year awards and the intent is to offer 5 awards per year.  “The intent of the program is to support graduate students who have already produced outstanding results.  Awards will be based on the quality of the applicant’s research contributions, as outlined in the Research Statement, and the strength of the letters of support. To be eligible the applicant must be a Ph.D. student at a U.S. institution of higher education. A track record of outstanding results in theoretical computer science is the key criterion.”  Limit of one application per university.  See: https://simonsfoundation.org/mps-simons-graduate-fellowships-rfa
  • STOC (in NYC) early registration deadline April 19.  See: http://cs.nyu.edu/~stoc2012/default.htm.  Note that on Saturday May 19, in addition to a tutorial in the morning by Michael Kearns (on algorithmic trading and computational finance), STOC is having a  workshop program  in the afternoon with 4 workshops in parallel.  The workshops are:
    • Computational Sustainability
      Steven Phillips, Kirk Pruhs, David Shmoys
    • Algorithms for Distributed and Streaming Data
      Ashish Goel, Andrew McGregor, Sergei Vassilvitskii
    • Algorithms for Memory-Sensitive Computing
      Michael Bender, Martin Farach-Colton
    • Unique Games Conjecture and Related Advances
