MADALGO Summer School

There are lots of good things happening at MADALGO. The institute was recently renewed for another 5 years, they recently organized the now-regular MASSIVE workshop in conjunction with SoCG (maybe it should also be organized in conjunction with SIGMOD or GIS ?), and now they're organizing a summer school on high dimensional geometric computing in conjunction with the new Center for the Theory of Interactive Computation (CTIC) run jointly by Aarhus and Tsinghua.

There's a stellar list of lecturers:
  • Alexandr Andoni (Microsoft Research Silicon Valley)

  • Ken Clarkson (IBM Research)

  • Thomas Dueholm Hansen (Aarhus University)

  • Piotr Indyk (MIT)

  • Nati Linial (Hebrew University)
and they're soliciting participation. Here's the blurb:
The summer school will take place on August 8-11, 2011 at Center for Massive Data Algorithmics (MADALGO) and Center for the Theory of Interactive Computation (CTIC) in the Department of Computer Science, Aarhus University, Denmark.
The school is targeted at graduate students, as well as researchers interested in an in-depth introduction to high-dimensional geometric computing.
The capacity of the summer school is limited. Prospective participants should register using the online registration form available here as soon as possible. Registering graduate students must also have their supervisor send a letter confirming their graduate student status directly to Gerth Brodal: gerth@madalgo.au.dk; the subject line of the email should be 'student_last_name/SS_2011/confirming'. Registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis and will close on Monday July 4, 2011.
Registration is free; handouts, coffee breaks, lunches and a dinner will be provided by MADALGO, CTIC and Aarhus University.
 I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that any MADALGO-sponsored event will also have rivers of beer, if you needed more incentive to attend.
