BCTCS & AlgoUK 2020
6th - 8th April 2020, SWANSEA


The 36th British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science will take place in Swansea from the afternoon of Monday 6 April to Wednesday 8 April 2020.

The purpose of BCTCS is to provide a forum in which researchers in theoretical computer science can meet, present research findings, and discuss developments in the field. It also aims to provide an environment in which PhD students can gain experience in presenting their work, and benefit from contact with established researchers.

The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of theoretical computer science, including automata theory, algorithms, complexity theory, semantics, formal methods, concurrency, game theory, types, languages and logics.

BCTCS 2020 is being held together with the Fourth AlgoUK workshop which includes a session on Verification of Railway Control Systems. There will also be a special evening public forum on Formal Methods in Software Engineering.

The list of Invited Speakers includes

              Simon Chadwick - Siemens Rail Automation UK
              Robert Constable - Cornell University
              Edith Elkind - Oxford University
              Cliff Jones - University of Newcastle
              Bas Luttik - University of Eindhoven
              David Manlove - University of Glasgow
              Jan Peleska - Bremen University
              MS Ramanujan - Warwick University
              Patrick Totzke - University of Liverpool
              Helen Treharne - University of Surrey
              John Tucker - Swansea University
              Kristina Vuskovic - University of Leeds


Participants wishing to give a 30 minute contributed talk on any topic within the scope of the colloquium are invited to submit a title and abstract via the BCTCS'2020 webpage. Presentations from research students and early career researchers are particularly encouraged. The titles and abstracts of all invited and contributed talks will appear in the Bulletin of the EATCS.


Registration information is available at the BCTCS'2020 webpage.

We have a number of bursaries worth £200 which can be used to reimburse the travel and accommodation expenses of UK-based researchers and PhD students. We hope to be able to offer these to all participants who provide a talk; but in the case of over-subscription, they will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Hence, do propose a talk early.


    Talk proposals and Registration: 1 March 2020
    Meeting: 6-8 April 2020


    London Mathematical Society
    Institute of Coding in Wales
    Sony Technology Centre
