ADFOCS is organized as part of the activities of the Algorithms and Complexity Group and the International Max-Planck Research School of the Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik. The scope of ADFOCS is international. Young researchers at the PhD student or postdoc level are cordially invited to participate. The goal of ADFOCS is to have hot topics from fundamental areas of computer science presented by top researchers in the field, bringing participants to the frontiers of current resarch. We will provide some grants for graduate students and young researchers. For more information on this year's lecturers, lectures, and schedule please have a look at the
