Program

This year's ADFOCS features three lecturers, each of which will give three lectures and two exercise sessions. They will be distributed to eight blocks of about four hours. A typical morning or afternoon block will start with 1 1/2 hours of lecture, followed by 1 1/2 hours of exercises (in small groups without the lecturers) with coffee break and an 1 hour discussion of the exercises with the lecturers. During the exercise periods, the respective lecturer will be around, as well as some fruits, snacks, and drinks.

There will be an additional slot for the members of the Algorithms and Complexity Group (D1) at MPI to introduce the different research areas of the group.

Excursion

For the excursion, we will go canoeing on the Blies river. A bus will depart from the university around 1:00 pm, and we will be back in Saarbruecken, city center, at approximately 6 pm. Since there will be no time for lunch before departure, sandwiches will be provided.
