One of my favorite workshops from the last five years was the IITK Workshop on Algorithms for Data Streams (see here for a report) back in 2006. This was also the meeting that resulted in the oft-cited Kanpur open problems list.

Well, I’m back in Kanpur for the unofficial sequel, the IITK Workshop on Algorithms for Processing Massive Data Sets and, so far, the talks, the organization, and the food (!) have been just as good. The workshop is principally organized by Sumit Ganguly. Thanks Sumit!

I hope to write more when time permits but, for now, please check out the schedule where videos and slides will soon be posted. Also, Krzysztof Onak and I are working on compiling another open problems document but let me get back to that.
