This is the blog for the SIGACT Committee for the Advancement of Theoretical Computer Science (CATCS).  The aims of this blog and site are to:

  1. Inform the TCS community about funding opportunities that arise, as well as discuss tips, suggestions, and experiences related to funding and funding agencies.
  2. Provide information (nuggets, slides, descriptions, surveys) that members of the TCS community can use to help in explaining the excitement of TCS to the broader public.
  3. Enlist the help of the TCS community for matters vital to the community as a whole, for instance in identifying candidates for NSF program directors, etc.

This site is based on the theorymatters wiki initially created by Sanjeev Arora, Boaz Barak, and Luca Trevisan in 2005, and subsequently transferred to the oversight of the CATCS and substantially maintained by Salil Vadhan (until 2015) and Tim Roughgarden (until 2018). The site is currently maintained by Shuchi Chawla. The porting of the wiki to a blog was done by Boaz Barak, Moses Charikar, and Luca Trevisan.
