Graduating Bits Announcement

Boaz asked me to remind people about ITCS, and in particular the Graduating Bits Event.  Just in time for those of us reading application folders....

ITCS 2016 will be held at MIT this year Jan 14-16. As in past years, we will hold a "graduating bits" event where students and postdocs that looking for positions can give a short presentation about themselves and their work. This can be a great way to let people know what you've been up to. See for more details. 

If you are interested in participating, please send Boaz Barak ( )  an email with the subject "Graduating bits" and the following information:

1) Name, Affiliation, status (student/postdoc)
2) Photo of yourself (web quality - no huge files please).
3) A short paragraph (3-4 sentences) about yourself and your research.
4) Homepage URL
5) Your presentation - 4 slides in PDF format, of which the first slide should be a title slide.

There is no deadline per se, but the presentations will be scheduled in the order of submissions so it’s “first comes first served”. I will also maintain a website with the photos and slides of all presenters, which should be a useful resource for anyone looking to hire theoretical computer scientists this year.
