SUMMARY:Caleidoscope: Research School in Computati
onal Complexity, cancelled
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20200615
DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20200619
LOCATION:Paris, France
DESCRIPTION:Computational complexity theory was bo
rn more than 50 years ago when researchers started
asking themselves what could be computed efficien
tly. Classifying problems/functions with respect t
o 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 researc
hers to develop a remarkable variety of approaches
, employing different mathematical methods and the
ories. The future development of complexity theor
y will require a subtle understanding of the simil
arities, differences and limitations of the many c
urrent approaches. The goal (and peculiarity) of t
he Caleidoscope school is to reunite in a single e
vent as many different takes on computational comp
lexity as can reasonably be fit in one week. The s
chool is aimed at graduate students and researcher
s who already work in some aspects of computationa
l complexity and/or who would like to learn about
the various approaches. We are sorry to announce
that, due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, the 20
20 edition of the Caleidoscope school is CANCELLED
. We hope we will be able to propose these great
lectures in the summer of 2021.

ure development of complexity theory will require
a subtle understanding of the similarities, differ
ences and limitations of the many current approach
es. The goal (and peculiarity) of the Caleidoscope
school is to reunite in a single event as many di
fferent takes on computational complexity as can r
easonably be fit in one week. The school is aimed
at graduate students and researchers who already w
ork in some aspects of computational complexity an
d/or who would like to learn about the various app
roaches.

dition of the Caleidoscope school is CANCELLED.&nb
