This workshop will be an opportunity for researchers in theory of computation within a few hours driving distance to Buffalo to interact. This year, the workshop will celebrate the legacy of Alan Turing as part of the Alan Turing Year. Talks will begin Saturday afternoon, September 29, and the event will end before lunch Sunday, September 30.
The First Eastern Great Lakes Theory of Computation workshop was held on September 6 and 7, 2008; the Second Eastern Great Lakes Theory of Computation workshop was held on October 3 and 4, 2009, the Third Eastern Great Lakes Theory of Computation workshop was held on October 9 and 10, 2010. and the Fourth Eastern Great Lakes Theory of Computation workshop was held on September 10 and 11, 2011.
The workshop will feature talks by the speakers above and a graduate student hour. Here is the schedule.
Like last year, we will again have a graduate student hour.
On Saturday, September 29, there will be short talks by graduate students from 5-6pm. We will have at most three talks of equal duration in one hour. Preference will be given to students who will graduate by summer of 2013. If you are interested, please fill in the relevant information on the registration form. If we receive more than three proposals, the organizing committee will pick three speakers. Our goal will be to have a diverse set of talks, both in research topics and geographical representation.
The deadline for sending in your nominations is September 10, 2012 and the list of speakers will be finalized by September 15, 2012. Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflict, we will not have a graduate student hour this EaGL.
Registration is free. However, unlike last few EaGLs, no meals will be provided. We will have some rudimentary coffee breaks. To register online, click here. The deadline for registration is September 24, 2012.
The workshop is reserving a block of rooms at the the following two hotels:
Unlike the fourth EaGL, the workshop is not going to be at the Center for Tomorrow. The workshop will in the new CSE home Davis Hall. Davis hall is not that close to the hotels (which are right next to each other): probably a 20 minute brisk walk.
For your convenience here is a link to the UB north campus map: Davis Hall is in the middle of the map (building number 37) and the hotels are in the south-east corner of the map (it is not shown on the map but it is at the intersection of Maple Rd and Flint Rd).
You should be able to park for free over the weekend in any parking lot as long as you do not park illegally (e.g. in a fire lane etc.). The two closest lot to Davis hall (which is where the workshop will be held) are Furnas and Jarvis parking lots. This map shows the parking lots.
The 5th Eastern Great Lakes Theory of Computation Workshop is made possible by the generous sponsorship of
