Highlights of Algorithms 2019
The Highlights of Algorithms (HALG) 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 2019 is the fourth conference in the series; the 1st Highlights of Algorithms (HALG 2016) conference took place in Paris, the 2nd Highlights of Algorithms (HALG 2017) conference took place in Berlin, and the 3rd Highlights of Algorithms (HALG 2018) conference took place in Amsterdam, and now the 4th Highlights of Algorithms (HALG 2019) conference will take place in Copenhagen.
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).
HALG adopts the recommendations of the SafeTOC report to combat harassment and discrimination in the Theory of Computing community.
