In the last few years, we invited our theory friends to visit us in Taiwan at the year-end to share their research works in theory day(s) events. This year, however, due to the pandemic, such visits and gatherings are not possible. Nevertheless, thanks to the great initiative by our old friend Elaine Shi, we decide to continue this tradition virtually and invite more friends!
Joint with Elaine, we co-host this virtual 5 days winter theory workshop in the Taiwan-US timezone, where we invite friends to present their works that cover a wide range of topics --- cryptography, algorithm, quantum, and theoretical machine learning. It is meant to be casual and interactive with talks scheduled at 9:30-11:30 am Taiwan time and 8:30-10:30 pm Eastern time. The workshop is free and open to everyone; in particular, students are encouraged to attend. We will host a physical site at N106, IIS, Academia Sinica, Taipei.
