WOLA 2022: a few slots for online presentations by students and postdocs

  1. It is still not too late to find a cheap flight to Warsaw. This includes Rome (see our suggestions in the previous email/post).
  2. We have a few unused slots for talks. Our plan is to open them to online participants who are students or postdocs. If you are a student or postdoc and want to give a talk remotely, via Zoom, please submit your title and abstract preferably by Monday via the registration form at https://ideas-ncbr.pl/en/wola/registration/ (If you have already registered, please register again.)
    If you have any time constraints, please indicate them at the beginning of the abstract (use Warsaw local time) and we will do our best to find a working slot. If there are a lot of submissions, we may assign less time to each talk and if this does not help, we may assign slots on the first–come first–serve basis.
  3. If you have not registered but you are coming in person, please do this ASAP. If you are planning on joining remotely, this will also help us with keeping you updated.

WOLA 2022: Call for contributed talks & please register

This is a reminder that the Workshop on Local Algorithms (WOLA) is
taking place in Warsaw this year from June 25 to 27. It is conveniently
scheduled right after STOC in Rome. Keynote speakers include Bernhard
Haeupler, Rotem Oshman, Michael Kapralov, and Vincent Cohen-Addad. More
information can be found on the official webpage:

# Contributed talks and registration

Apart from keynote talks, WOLA is going back to the pre-pandemic
tradition of contributed talks by the workshop participants. **If you
are planning to attend in person and want to give a talk**, please
register as soon as possible at
https://ideas-ncbr.pl/en/wola/registration/. Even if you are not
planning to give a talk, registering helps the local organizers with
estimating the number of attendees, which is useful for events such as...

# A night tour of Warsaw on a retro bus

See the attached picture for what such a bus looks like! I'm told by the
local organizers that this will include a tasting of Polish specialties.
This event is scheduled for Saturday night.

# Traveling from STOC in Rome

The workshop is starting at 1:30pm on Saturday to allow for more options
for traveling from STOC. There are direct flights with Wizz Air on both
Friday night and Saturday morning. You can also fly with KLM (via AMS)
or Air France (via CDG) on Saturday morning if you prefer a more
traditional air carrier.
