General Information

The third annual Bristol Algorithms Days (BAD'09) was held at the Department of Computer Science, University of Bristol, in Bristol, 11-12 May 2009. The aim of BAD'09 was to gather researchers and students interested in the study of theoretical and practical aspects of algorithms. Information about BAD'08 can be found here .

This workshop was funded by "Bridging the Gaps", an EPSRC-funded initiatiave to set up an environment that nurtures interdisciplinary working, with the aim of developing new collaborative research programmes at the interface between mathematical sciences, information and computing technology and engineering.
