The 5 0th Annual Symposium on Foundations of Computer Sc ience\n (FOCS2009), sponsored by the IEEE Com puter Society Technical\n Committee on Mathem atical Foundations of Computing, will be held\n in at the Renaissance Atlanta Hotel Downtown in Atlanta, GA,\n October 24-27, 2009. Typical but not exclusive topics of\n interest inclu de: algorithms and data structures, computational\ n complexity, cryptography, computational geo metry, computational\n game theory, algorithm ic graph theory and combinatorics,\n optimiza tion, randomness in computing, parallel and distri buted\n computing, machine learning, applicat ions of logic, algorithmic\n algebra and codi ng theory, theoretical aspects of databases,\n information retrieval, networks, computational b iology,\n robotics, and quantum computing.\n

\n \n \nFor more informa tion, see\n http://www.cs.yale.edu/focs 09 or contact the Local\n Arrangements Ch airs, Milena Mihail and Prasad Tetali, by email\n to focs2009 at cc.gatech.edu or\n focs2009.local at gm ail.com.\n

\n\n <
p>Papers presenting new and original research on t
heory of\n computation are sought. Papers th
at broaden the reach of\n theory, or raise im
portant problems that can benefit from\n theo
retical investigation and analysis, are encouraged
.\n Submission deadline is . Extended abstra
