The lectures will cover introductory notions, accessible to beginners, as well as more recent and advanced results. The school is primarily intended for graduate students and young researchers who wish to get acquainted with and further their knowledge of
this rapidly growing field.

Featured are keynote talks by researchers and communicators with original experience in popularizing mathematics. We are equally interested in how outreach contributes to serious mathematical sciences research. We are also interested in how to include stories and both-ways thinking so that learners traditionally disenfranchised from maths can become involved.
The conference explores new ways of thinking initiated by COMPUTER SCIENCE UNPLUGGED! and similar efforts (www.csunplugged.org). We will investigate creating new activities, with 21st Century computational and both-ways thinking.
The conference series was started in Darwin, 2013 (www.cdu.edu.au/conference/csmaths)
Participation in the conference is open to everyone and will be limited only by logistical constraints.

AUGUST Parametrized Complexity of Computational Reasoning
Satellite workshop of MFCS and CSL. Brno, Czechia.
29 August 2010
Contact: Stefan Szeider
Only organiser’s general web site is available for the time being: http://www.szeider.net/
This workshop aims to support a fruitful exchange of ideas between the research on Parameterized Complexity on one side and the research on various forms of computational reasoning (such as Nonmonotonic, Probabilistic, and Constraint-based reasoning) on the other. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: multivariate analysis of reasoning problems, kernelization and preprocessing, fixed-parameter tractability and hardness, backdoors and decompositions.

Workshop on Parameterized Complexity and Algorithm Design (2 days) at the University of Newcastle, Australia. Tuesday&Wednesday, the 30 &31st of March, held in the Engineering Quad in Building EF, Room 122. Here is the Programme. Here are the Abstracts and slides:

There will be no fee for this Workshop. The workshop will begin on Tuesday morning 9:30 am and conclude on Wednesday afternoon. Family and children are invited to the picnic-BBQ "banquet" Tuesday evening, at the Old rail marshalling yards Pavillion at Foreshore Park. See Location 5 on this Newcastle East Heritage Walk Map.
(1) Basic Introduction to Multivariate Algorithmics, including some of the recent achievements and open problems.
(2) Tools and techniques for showing FPT or hardness, such as preprocessing and kernelization, iterative compression, and reductions.
(3) Applications to important fields such as Artificial Intelligence, Social Choice, Bioinformatics, Machine Learning, Algorithms Engineering and Computational Complexity and Algorithmics.
Parameterized Complexity is the rapidly advancing field of multivariate algorithmics with wide applications in almost every field dealing with algorithms. The basic idea is that not all parts of a problem input are created equal, and many instances of NP-complete problems are actually tractable, with practical algorithms, when various parts (parameters) of the input structure can be bounded. gaspreise vergleich hildesheim
As an example in multi-agent systems, coalitions enable agents to achieve goals while sharing resources. Most coalitional games problems are NP-hard, but FPT (Fixed-Parameter Tractable) in the number of goals, implying that if the number of goals is bounded then an efficient algorithm is available. Similarly, the problems are FPT in the combination of the number of agents and resources, again implying that if these parameters are bounded then an efficient algorithm is available. On the other hand, the problems are para-NP hard in the number of resources, implying that even if we bound the number of resources the problems (probably) remain hard (Shrot, Aumann, Kraus, AAMAS 2009).Strom Gas Preisvergleich wolfsburg
As an example in bioinformatics (motif search in strings) and coding theory (minimum radius), the NP-hard CLOSEST STRING problem is to find a length-L string that minimizes the maximum Hamming distance d to a given set of k length-L strings. This is FPT parameterized by the combination (alphabet size, k), and also d.
As an example in graphs, VERTEX COVER is FPT parameterized by the size of the cover, but DOMINATING SET remains hard.
