Theory Fest (aka STOC) Registration is open

From Sanjeev Arora:

Theory fest is an expanded/enhanced STOC with a raft of exciting events and activities.  June 19-23 2017 in Montreal. Please check out the full schedule at

The registration portal is now open. Despite a 5-day schedule plus evening poster+beer sessions, the early registration fee has been kept down to only US$380 (and US$210 for students). We hope to see you there! Early registration ends May 21.

Note that it is still possible to submit a poster until May 1; the call for posters is

Writing for a Broad Scientific Audience

Many results in theoretical computer science are of interest to a broad scientific audience.  One way to reach that audience is to publish in venues aimed at them, such as Science, Nature, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).  What’s the best approach for writing for such venues?  Ryan O’Donnell collected advice from a number of TCS researchers who have successfully published in these venues in the past.  See this document for the summary (also available from Theory Matters under the “Resources” tab).

New TCS Events Calendar

Shachar Lovett and Sasha Kulikov created a website for TCS events, at  There is also a link to the site from the the top-level menu at Theory Matters.

From the creators:

The goal of this website is to allow the TCS community to advertise and learn about relevant events (workshops, schools, etc), with a focus on algorithms and complexity. We added the top theory conferences for convenience, but the goal is to mainly focus on events that do not repeat annually and that people may not be aware of them.

If you find any mistakes, want to update existing events, suggest a change  to the website or anything else, please email Shachar Lovett or Sasha Kulikov.
