FOCS 2012
53rd Annual IEEE Symposium on
Foundations of Computer Science

October 20-23, 2012
Hyatt Regency, New Brunswick, New Jersey


FOCS 2012 will have a poster session, which can be thought of as an extended hallway discussion with a visual aid. The poster session will be held during the conference, in a special Monday night session, accompanied by refreshments. We welcome posters on research in any aspect of theoretical computer science.  We hope that the poster session is particularly useful for:

  • Researchers with papers in other conferences that would be of interest to the FOCS community.
  • FOCS 2012 authors who want to have a visual aid for extended/related discussions of their work.
  • Students who wish to discuss their work in a broader context (for example, by presenting an overview of a line of research)

In order to present a poster, authors must email the following information to by September 11, 2012, 5pm Pacific time.

  • Title
  • A 1-2 paragraph abstract
  • Name of person presenting the poster
  • Whether the presenter is planning to register for FOCS
Note that poster submissions are not refereed. However, the committee reserves the right to turn down submissions deemed out of scope. If the number of poster submissions exceeds capacity, priority will be given to registered FOCS attendees and secondarily according to the date of submission. Poster slots will be confirmed by September 17, 2012. If any slots remain, submissions received after the deadline may be considered at the discretion of the committee.
