Workshop on Coding, Complexity and Sparsity

Anna Gilbert, S Muthukrishnan, Hung Ngo, Ely Porat, Atri Rudra,  and Martin Strauss are organizing a workshop on coding, complexity and sparsity at Ann Arbor in August, and are soliciting participation for a Dagstuhl-style event. Here's the blurb:


Workshop on Coding, Complexity and Sparsity
Ann Arbor, Aug1--4, 2011. 
Organized by Anna Gilbert, S Muthukrishnan, Hung Ngo,Ely Porat, Atri Rudra, Martin Strauss.

There has been a considerable amount of fruitful interaction between coding and complexity theories, and a fledgling interaction between sparse representation and coding theories. We believe that academic research will be far richer exploring more of the connections between sparse representation and coding theories, as well as, between sparse representation and complexity theories. Could there be a general structural complexity theory of sparse  representation problems and could techniques from algorithmic coding  theory help sparse representation problems? 
The plan is to get researchers from different areas together in a  Dagstuhl-like setting and explore the question. There will be tutorials,  talks and time to research. Registration is free and the deadline is July 15th.  We have limited funding to (partially) support the participation of some  graduate students.  
For more details on the workshop (including the tutorials, list of invited  speakers and how to apply for participation support), please go to the  workshop webpage.
