LICS 2011 (Logic in Computer Science) has posted its call-for-papers
(It was probably posted a while back- the submission deadline is Jan 12, two days from now.)
I noticed some people on the committee that are regularly at
CCC. How much do LICS and CCC overlap?
In 1987 CCC (then called Structures) co-located with LICS at Cornell. I do not know if that many people went to both (I did not). Some years later I noticed that LICS and CCC were at the same time on different coasts, hence it would be impossible to go to both. Nobody complained (in fact, nobody seemed to notice) so I assumed there is not that much overlap.
SO-I throw the question to those who go to both conferences- is there much overlap? Would people from CCC benefit by going to an occasional LICS? Would people from LICS benefit by going to an occasional CCC? Surely the answer is YES in terms of getting exposure to some new things. But is there a benefit beyond that?
- (Disclosure- I am on the program committee for this one.) TAMC 2011: (Theory and Applications of Models of Computation) has posted its call-for-papers here. Note that the Submission deadline is Feb 5 and its in Japan. Is it being in Japan make it more or less likely for you to want to go? If you are a theorist in Japan (or close to Japan) then I would assume this is GREAT since its a local. If not then do you view it as (1) too expensive, too much time away from home, so DON"T want to go, or (2) get to see another country! so do want to go! Obviously different people think different things at different times.
