This reunion workshop is for long-term participants in the program "Evolutionary Biology and the Theory of Computing" held in the Spring 2014 semester. It will provide an opportunity to meet old and new friends. Moreover, we hope that it will give everyone a chance to reflect on the progress made during the semester and since, and sketch which directions the field should go in in the future. The organizers are planning to have various activities during the reunion, including panel discussions, open problems sessions, research talks, and updates from Simons Fellows. In an effort to keep things informal and to encourage open discussion, none of the activities will be recorded.
Support is gratefully acknowledged from:
Participation in the workshop is by invitation only.
