Parameterized Complexity Summer School (PCSS)

Spend your summer at the 3rd Parameterized Complexity Summer School (PCSS) held in Vienna, Austria, from September 1 – 3. The school is pre-event of ALGO 2017.


The school is aimed at researchers of all levels* in parameterized complexity as well as researchers from other areas who are interested in applying parameterized techniques in their respective domains. The exercises and open problems should challenge even more experienced participants.
*PhD students, early career researchers, recognized researchers, established researchers 

Featured Speakers

Apart from providing an introduction to the basics of parameterized complexity the summer school covers some recent advances and emphasizes applications of parameterized complexity in economics, logic, and Artificial Intelligence. The school program will contain courses in basics of Parameterized Complexity, FPT techniques, Treewidth I & II, and courses in the field of ETH and SETH Lower Bounds. A list of all speakers can be found here.


Registration for the 3rd Parameterized Complexity Summer School (PCSS) will open in the beginning of June 2017. The registration for PCSS will be done through the registration platform of ALGO congress 2017. Follow the link to the registration.
