(IEEE) Conference on Computational Complexity

The 29th IEEE Conference on Computational Complexity will be held in Vancouver June 11-13. Student travel award deadline is TOMORROW Monday May 5th extended to May 9, early registration deadline is May 17. Don't buy your airline tickets before you read the rest of this post.

The results of a non-binding electronic vote showed 60% would prefer going independent from any society with most of the rest recommending a joint ACM/IEEE meeting. Going independent is far from free, it requires considerable volunteer hours every year to keep the conference going and only 17% of the respondents indicated a willingness to help. The steering committee is asking for volunteer commitments by May 8 and also potential donations to provide start-up funds for an independent symposium. There may be an organizational meeting preceding or following the conference, watch the home page for details.
