STOC 2012 Call For Posters

This year, STOC 2012 will have a poster session, reprising the successful event from STOC 2011. The poster session will be held during the main conference, and should be thought of as an extended hallway-discussion with a visual aid. The poster session will be ba separate session on its own, accompanied by refreshments. We welcome posters from attendees on research in any aspect of theoretical computer sciences, and believe presenting posters should be especially appealing for researchers with recent relevant result.
  • Researchers with papers in other conferences that would be of interest to the STOC community.
  • STOC 2012 authors who want to have a visual aid for extended/related discussions of their work.
  • Students who wish to discuss their work in a broader context (for example, by presenting an overview of a line of research)
