17 - 21 June 2019, Caleidoscope: Research School in Computational Complexity, Paris, France

Date: 17 - 21 June 2019
Location: Paris, France
Deadline: Sunday 19 May 2019

Computational complexity theory was born more than 50 years ago when researchers started asking themselves what could be computed efficiently. Classifying problems/functions with respect to the amount of resources (e.g. time and/or space) needed to solve/compute them turned out to be an extremely difficult question. This has led researchers to develop a remarkable variety of approaches, employing different mathematical methods and theories.

The future development of complexity theory will require a subtle understanding of the similarities, differences and limitations of the many current approaches. The goal (and peculiarity) of the Caleidoscope school is to reunite in a single event as many different takes on computational complexity as can reasonably be fit in one week. It is intended for graduate students as well as established researchers who wish to learn more about neighbouring areas.
