Track: Modern CS in the Real World

Location: Pacific DEKJ

Day of week: Tuesday

Computer Science research did not stop at QuickSort or the LR algorithm. In this track we'll cover topics such as probabilistic algorithms and data structures, new security and distributed algorithms, advances in typing, formal methods, new approaches to concurrency and much more.  

Why? Because we need to tackle ever more data in shorter periods of time - but our CPUs don't get much faster. Concurrency helps - but that just brings new problems to tackle, and meanwhile more moving parts just means more things that can fall over if we're not careful. Time to sneak a peek at approaches real companies use to tackle this issues using Computer Science research and results from the last few decades.
