Highlights of Algorithms 2021
The 6th Highlights of Algorithms (HALG 2021) 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 and survey 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.
The conference will be virtual, hosted by the Department of Mathematics of the London School of Economics and Political Science. There will be a lot of emphasis in the program on various social and networking aspects, which we consider crucial to the success of the conference.
HALG 2021 is the sixth conference in the series; previous iterations took place in Paris (2016), Berlin (2017), Amsterdam (2018), Copenhagen (2019) and (online, due to the COVID-19 pandemic) Zurich (2020).
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 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. Please see the full anti-harassment policy.
