Two links of interest:
Complexity 2008 deadline for early registration is
JUNE 1- so sign up NOW!
ACM Dissertation Awards
What is of interest is that the winner and two of the three runnerups
are in THEORY- the winner and one of the runner ups is in Cryptography
Actually the winners are often theorists though this year it is more
striking. Are theorists producing the best PhDs in computer science?
I would not say that; however, for a theory PhD (and perhaps for
theory in general) its easier to tell that something is good work
since we have well defined problems that can have well defined
solutions. Other areas do indeed produce good work, but it may
take time to recognize that.
