JHU Workshop on Sublinear Algorithms

The latest in a long line of workshops on sublinear algorithms (streaming! sketching ! property testing ! all of the above !) will be held at JHU this year just before SODA 2016. The message from the organizers is below: do consider attending if you're planning to attend SODA. (Disclaimer: I'm giving one of the 20+ talks, but I will not promise that it's excellent). 

Dear colleagues,

We are organizing a Sublinear Algorithms workshop that will take place at Johns Hopkins University, January 7-9, 2016. The workshop will bring together researchers interested in sublinear algorithms, including sublinear-time algorithms (e.g., property testing and distribution testing), sublinear-space algorithms (e.g., sketching and streaming) and sublinear measurements (e.g., sparse recovery and compressive sensing).

The workshop will be held right before SODA’16, which starts on January 10 in Arlington, VA (about 50 miles from JHU).

Participation in this workshop is open to all, with free registration. In addition to 20+ excellent invited talks, the program will include short contributed talks by graduating students and postdocs, as well as a poster session. To participate in the contributed talk session and/or the poster session, apply by December 1.
