CSC16 was held last week. Kudos to Assefaw and Erik as the chair of the workshop.
There are so much to talk about. We will have a series of posts about the workshop and related things. Here are some bits and pieces.
The workshop had three invited talks, 19 contributed talks, and eight posters, and attended by 60+ people. There will be a proceedings with 11 papers. The proceedings will be published by SIAM and will be hosted at its publication platform.
We had also celebrated the 60th birthdays of Alex Pothen and Rob Bisseling.
There was a best paper award. It went to Fredrik Manne, Md. Naim, Håkon Lerring, and Mahantesh Halappanavar for their paper titled On Stable Marriages and Greedy Matching. Congratulations. The citation by the best paper award committee (Uwe Naumann, Alex Pothen, and Sivan Toledo) reads as:
for the way the paper brings together several decades of work on stable marriages with the more recent work on approximation algorithms for weighted matchings, and the consequences for the average case complexity of the latter algorithms.
