Women in Theory

Filed under: Silent Glen Speaks @ 4:54 pm
Tags: ,

I’m on my way back from the 3rd Women in Theory biennial conference. I was invited to the first one, as a participant, but was unable to go due to a combination of teaching my first course, recovering from mono and generally travelling too much in the early months of my post doc. While I’m [...]

FOCS/STOC/ITCS/SODA/ICALP/ESA/STACS/WADS/SWAT/TOO/MNY/CNFS

Filed under: Silent Glen Speaks @ 8:18 am
Tags: , ,

I missed the FOCS business meeting for no good reason.  But I heard after that there was some discussion along the lines of how many papers FOCS should accept with people vying for fewer papers and a more prestigious conference.  Apparently there were complaints from the old guys that most of the conference was under [...]

Reviewing a paper multiple times

It has happened several times to me now. I (sub)review a paper for a conference and for one reason or another the paper is rejected.  The next conference deadline rolls around and I get a request to review the same paper.  I have never turned down these requests until today, and even today it was [...]

Free trip to SODA

Via Kirk Pruhs, and, I am sure, to be reported elsewhere: 10,000 free round-trip tickets to SODA Japan Maybe this will help alleviate the concerns around such a remote (for the US and Europe) location.

How do you find conference acceptance rates?

Filed under: Silent Glen Speaks @ 11:45 am
Tags: ,

It’s getting to be that time.  Mid-tenure.  I apparently am supposed to include acceptance rates for conference publications.  Google got me about half the numbers, but for the rest … is it annoying to email the program chair for that conference?  Even if it was a few years ago?  How else would you find out? [...]

A flat 6-pack of SODA

Filed under: Silent Glen Speaks @ 10:30 pm
Tags: , ,

Rightly chastised by Suresh for not blogging while at SODA [1] – enough time has passed for me to completely forget anything I might have wanted to say. But the timing is perfect. I am procrastinating writing a paper that I do not wish to write [2]. So here are six (not necessarily technical) things [...]

PC innocence

I’ve long been meaning to remark on my experiences of being on the SODA and ALENEX program committees this past year and fellow bloggers recent reflections on PC membership encourages me to finally post what little I have to say. I went into the SODA PC expecting a lot of work.  I (mostly) cleared out [...]

A skulk of FOCS talks

Filed under: Silent Glen Speaks @ 8:29 am
Tags: , ,

The FOCS talks are now available online!  I waited until now to report on FOCS for this very reason.  I am not about to compete with Suresh or Lance for live blogging conferences.  I’m not sure where they find the time amidst talks and meetings in hallways to do so.  (I have to say, whenever [...]

Lessons on writing conference reviews

Filed under: Silent Glen Speaks @ 11:41 am
Tags: , , ,

I’m on the SODA 2011 program committee and finding it, as everything this last year (grant writing, NSF panelling, grad student advising), a condensed learning experience. Our reviews are almost due which means that this newbie has been through all but a a few of my stack. I asked for subreviews for roughly half my [...]

SODA 2012 to be in Kyoto, Japan

Filed under: Silent Glen Speaks @ 8:54 pm
Tags: ,

I missed the business meeting to have dinner with a non-SODA-attending friend and so missed the voting over the location of SODA 2012 which was apparently a close tie. I’m a little dismayed at SODA being outside of North America.  As a graduate student I would have probably been excited in my responsibility-free state.  But [...]
