Algorithm has become so fundamental that entire software Industry these days pays most attention to the skills in this area.


In this workshop, a series of invited talks will be delivered on various aspects of Algorithms with due focus on Graph and Geometric Algorithms. Apart from the invited talks, there will be an open session between invited speakers and students for discussion on how to conduct research in these areas.

Venue: BITS Pilani, Hyderabad Campus, Hyderabad, Telangana, India.
Workshop Dates: 
21-22 September, 2018.
