- Distinguished talks by Julia Chuzhoy and Venkataesan Guruswami!
- Short talks (is that code for NOT distinguished?) by Bill Gasarch, MohammadTaghi Hajiaghayi, Jonathan Katz, Samir Khuller, David Mount, Elaine (Runting) Shi, and Aravind Srinivsan. (I never realized I was first alphabetically until now.)
- Discussions in hallways for those that learn more that way!
For more info see the link above, but note one thing: Its FREE!
I like theory days in general and often go to the NY theory days. They are free and only one day. I recommend going to any theory day that is an Amtrak Ride away. (Might depend on how long the trip is- There is a 13-hour Amtrak from Atlanta Georgia to Maryland, though I doubt I'll see Lance there.) I get a lot out of theory day as noted in this post about NY theory day
(ADDED LATER AT THE REQUEST OF THE ORGANIZER:
Theory day at UMCP is intentionally after the NJ Focs and is an easy amtrak
away from NJ. The stop is New Carolton)
