The 28th British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science will be
hosted by the School of Computer Science, University of Manchester,
from 2nd to 5th April, 2012.

The purpose of 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.
This year, BCTCS is part of the Alan Turing Year, and will be
collocated with the Automated Reasoning Workshop ARW

PhD Student Bursaries are STILL available, covering the bulk of the
attendance costs. It is easy to apply for one. Please see the website
for details.

The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of theoretical
computer science, including automata theory, algorithms, complexity
theory, semantics, formal methods, concurrency, types, languages and
logics. Both computer scientists and mathematicians are welcome to
attend, as are participants from outside of the UK.

The colloquium features both invited and contributed talks. This
year's invited speakers are

    Rod Downey, School of Mathematics, Statistics and Operations Research,
      Victoria University of Wellington. (LMS Keynote Speaker in
      Discrete Mathematics)
    Mike Edmunds, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Cardiff.
    Reiner Haehnle, Fachbereich Informatik, Technische Universitaet 
    Nicole Schweikardt Institut fuer Informatik, Goethe-Universitaet,
      Frankfurt am Main.

Participants wishing to give 30 minute contributed talks may simply to
submit a title and abstract (100--300 words) by the deadline given
