Add to Calendar

Organizers:

Alessandro Chiesa (UC Berkeley; chair), Eli Ben-Sasson (Technion Israel Institute of Technology), Yael Kalai (MSR and MIT), Rafael Pass (Cornell University), Mike Walfish (New York University)

The goal of the boot camp is to break the ice between researchers involved in the diverse themes of this program: proofs, consensus, and their applications to society. The boot camp will include tutorials and surveys of the main research questions and tools within each theme, with an emphasis on the connections and interactions across the themes. This will ensure that participants are well-equipped for fruitful discussions and collaborations throughout the semester.

All events take place in the Calvin Lab auditorium.
