THE TALKS of THE PLENARY SESSIONS ARE ON LINE HERE

The Talks of the workshops are available below.

Theory of Computing was born as a purely mathematical investigation into the notion of computation. From the start, it has been a cornerstone of computer science, tackling fundamental computing research problems. It soon also turned out to be a useful paradigm of thought to facilitate research in other disciplines, such as economics and biology.

The purpose of the conference is to present current research in the field as well as discuss the future of Theory of Computing in the following areas: complexity-theory, Boolean-functions, cryptography, learning, algorithmic game-theory, evolutionary biology.
