STOC Business Meeting

STOC got underway Sunday with a full slate of talks and a lengthy business meeting last night. I do not have time for a long post now so I will just bring you up to date on some facts from the business meeting.

The attendance was 261 (242 paid + 19 local helpers). Later today I will update the contest post with the results.

STOC 2005 will be in Baltimore May 22-24 and STOC 2006 will be in Seattle. There were announcements of three new journals, the previously mentioned ACM Transactions on Algorithms and two on-line open-access journals Logical Methods in Computer Science and Theory of Computing.

Most of the business meeting was devoted to the future of the special issue and I left around 11 PM last night before this discussion had ended. This discussion will require a post of its own in the near future.

STOC runs through Tuesday. Much more as the week goes on.
