25th British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science (BCTCS)

                        6th to 9th April 2009
                        University of Warwick, Coventry UK


The purpose of the BCTCS is to provide a forum in which researchers in
theoretical computer science can meet, present research findings, and
discuss developments in the field. It also aims to provide an
environment in which PhD students can gain experience in presenting
their work, and benefit from contact with established researchers. The
conference will consist of invited keynote presentations by
distinguished researchers and a number of contributed talks.


BCTCS 2009 will be held at the campus of the University of Warwick, in
the outskirts of Coventry, UK. The campus is located in the "Heart of
England" and is easy to reach from most places in the UK. It is also
close to Birmingham International Airport, which has flights to other
cities in the UK, Europe, and further abroad.

The event will start on Monday afternoon, with registration from 3pm and
the invited talk by Noga Alon at 5pm. The meeting will end with lunch on 


BCTCS 2009 will be enriched by talks given by several invited
distinguished speakers, including:

     * Noga Alon, Tel Aviv University
     * Paul Goldberg, University of Liverpool
     * Andy Gordon, Microsoft Research
     * Jane Hillston, University of Edinburgh
     * Alistair Sinclair, University of California at Berkeley
     * Bill Wadge, University of Victoria


Registration is now open. The early registration fee will apply until
28 February. Accomodation on campus is limited and we suggest 
registration as early as possible.


Participants at the colloquium are encouraged to present a contributed
talk. Please prepare an abstract using the LaTeX template and submit
at the abstract submission page. The abstracts of accepted contributed
talks will be published in the Bulletin of the European Association
for Theoretical Computer Science.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 28 February 2009.


The BCTCS steering committee has obtained ongoing funding to support
the participation of upto 45 graduate students at BCTCS. The
fellowships cover registration including accomodation and meals, but
not travel. Students enrolled at UK higher education institutions may
apply for fellowships by filling the online application
form. Fellowships will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis
to those PhD students who submit an abstract and commit to presenting
a contributed talk (see above). Some fellowships may be available to
students not presenting contributed talks; decisions on these cases
will be taken in March 2009.


The conference is being organised by Artur Czumaj, Sara Kalvala, and
Steve Matthews from the Department of Computer Science, University of
