The NSF-funded DIMACS Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical CS is seeking visitor and postdoctoral fellowship applications for its 1995-96 Special Year on Logic and Algorithms. Participants are Rutgers, Princeton, AT&T Bell Laboratories, and Bellcore. This year's focus is computer-aided verification, finite-model theory, and proof complexity, bridging US work on algorithms and complexity and European work on formal models and semantics. Week-long tutorials will be held, plus related workshops and the 8-day Federated Logic Conference (incorporating CADE, CAV, LICS, and RTA). Other DIMACS topics include analysis of algorithms, combinatorics, computational algebra, discrete and computational geometry, discrete optimization, graph theory, and miscellany. Research funds may be solicited from NSF as well as from DIMACS. Contact Moshe Vardi (, Eric Allender, (, or, 908-445-5928, 908-445-5932 Fax,, gopher, or telnet (login info).
