IEEE Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science
October 7–9, 2018
The IEEE Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS) boasts a rich scholarly history dating back to 1960 as the Symposium on Switching Circuit Theory and Logical Design. In collaboration with its sister conference, which was founded in 1969 as the ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing (STOC), both are some of the best venues in the world for presenting theoretical computer science findings.
This year’s FOCS will take place in Paris, where conferencegoerscan find the landmarks that have shaped the world outside of
computing. Which is what Alvy Ray Smith did for FOSC in 1973. Smith, a co-founder of Pixar and Lucasfilm’s Computer Division, created the iconic cover of FOCS print proceedings. The role of a computer scientist may remain defined by changing tides and new research topics, but FOCS’ impact on theoretical computer science research continues to be a continuous source of important discoveries
