Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, June 4-6, 2018

Highlights of Algorithms 2018

Registration is now open!

The conference will take place from Monday June 4 until Wednesday June 6. We have an exciting lineup of speakers. We hope to see you in Amsterdam!

The schedule will be similar to previous years; you may wish to consult the websites of the 2016 and 2017 editions of the conference.

We recommend you book your accommodation as soon as possible!

The 3rd Highlights of Algorithms (HALG 2018) conference is designed to be a forum for presenting the highlights of recent developments in algorithms and for discussing potential further advances in this area. The conference will provide a broad picture of the latest research in algorithms through a series of invited talks, as well as the possibility for all researchers and students to present their recent results through a series of short talks and poster presentations. Attending the Highlights of Algorithms conference will also be an opportunity for networking and meeting leading researchers in algorithms.

HALG 2018 is the third conference in the series; the 1st Highlights of Algorithms (HALG 2016) conference took place in Paris, and the 2nd Highlights of Algorithms (HALG 2017) conference took place in Berlin.

There will be no conference proceedings. As a result, presenting work already published at a different venue or journal (or to be submitted there) is welcome. The format of the event will reflect the character of (very successful) conferences in other fields, e.g., mathematics or physics, and also a recent Highlights of Logic, Games and Automata conference.

The conference’s mission is to promote research on algorithmic foundations and foster a community in Europe. It was initiated as part of a broader effort in this direction by the Interest Group on Algorithmic Foundations of Information Technology (IGAFIT).
