1st Latin American Theoretical Informatics School

This will be a first of, what will hopefully be, a series of Schools on topics related to Theoretical Computer Science which are expected to take place in conjunction with the Latin American Theoretical Computer Science Symposium (LATIN). In particular, the first version of the School will be co-located and run in parallel to LATIN’2012.

The School’s objectives are to encourage attendance of Latin American students to the LATIN Symposium, to expose them to recent research developments, to give them the opportunity of learning recently developed advanced topics, and to facilitate their interaction with researchers working in and outside Latin America.


Lugar: Universidad Católica San Pablo, in Arequipa, Peru.

Local Organizers:
Maria Pilar Rondon, U. Católica San Pablo.
