Call for participation

Background and objectives

Estonian Computer Science Theory Days started in 2002 and have been organized many times since then. In Latvia, a similar event, Computer Science Days, has been organized several times since 2011. The first joint Estonian-Latvian Theory Days were held in 2010. This year, we (the Faculty of Computing, University of Latvia, with the help of our Estonian colleagues) are organizing the eighth such event. The main goal of the Theory Days is to let the theoretical computer scientists of our two countries to get acquainted with the work of each other. However, people from other countries are welcome to participate as well. The main audience is intended to be the graduate students in the roles of both listeners and presenters.


The event will take place in Riga, at the Faculty of Computing, University of Latvia (19 Raina Blvd., 3rd floor) from May 6 to May 8, 2022 (with the talks beginning at 13:30 on Friday, and ending at 16:00 on Sunday), see the location here. Riga can be reached conveniently by various means of transportation including buses, trains, airplanes. The participants are expected to book their own accommodation.
