Bristol Algorithms Days 2010
Feasibility Workshop

15 - 16 February 2010

BAD 2010 is now over. The organisers would like to thank all the speakers and everyone who attended for making the workshop a success. The slides for the presentations will appear in the programme section shortly. One of the speakers, Graham Cormode, has written a summary of the first day of the event on the "polylogblog".

Following three successful Bristol Algorithms Days in 2007--09, a two day feasibility workshop is being held on February 15 and 16 2010. The aim of this event is to explore new avenues of research in both the theoretical and practical aspects of algorithms. This year we will have as special themes pattern matching algorithms for streaming data and the new area of algorithms for power efficiency, although talks will not be restricted to those topics. Information about the previous workshop BAD'09 can be found here.

This workshop is funded by the Pure Mathematics and Algorithms theme of an EPSRC grant "Bridging the Gaps-Cross disciplinary Feasibility Account". This is an initiative to set up an environment that nurtures interdisciplinary working, with the aim of exploring new collaborative research programmes at the interface between mathematics and computer science.

Confirmed speakers: Other information:

We will try to make participants' lives as easy as possible (email access, space for discussion, tea/coffee/cookie access, etc.). Lunches will be provided on both days and there will be a workshop dinner on the evening of Monday 15th February. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions that you may have.

The workshop is being organised by Malcolm MacCallum, Raphaël Clifford and members of the Algorithms Group at Bristol University. Kerrie Walker is providing local administrative support.
