Following three successful Bristol Algorithms Days in 2007--09, the Algorithms Group is hosting a two day feasibility workshop 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.

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.
