About MTD

Midwest Theory Day is held twice a year, usually on a Saturday in December and on a Saturday in April or May.  Anyone interested in theoretical computer science is welcome to attend.  There is no registration fee, lunch is provided, and the talks are scheduled so that from many locations in the Midwest it is often possible to come, attend all of the talks, and return home all in a day.  For those wishing to stay into the evening, arrangements for a banquet dinner are made at a local restaurant, each person paying for his or her own meal.

There are usually six or seven contributed talks and often an invited talk.  There is no program committee and there are no proceedings.  Anyone willing to talk may do so.  The atmosphere is relaxed and informal and so is an excellent forum for graduate students to get experience giving a talk.

Generally, the December day has been held at a university in Chicago and the spring day somewhere else in the Midwest but this varies depending on who offers to host.

If you have any questions about the day or this web site or, better yet, if you wish to host the day please send me e-mail.

The next Theory Day (69th) will be held at Purdue University on April 26th and 27th. Check out the webpage!

A table listing the  dates and locations of all previous Theory Days is available.  This was originally copied from the web site created by Shripad Thite, the organizer of the December, 2001, Theory Day, and based on information given by Michael Loui.
