Female Scientist Forum, Young Ph.D. Forum and Undergraduate Research Forum were specially featured in IJTCS 2020 to showcase the active power of female and rising stars in theoretical computer science. The conference also held two closed meetings to discuss “how to better develop theoretical computer science in China” and “how to combine theoretical computer science with industrial application” with the attendance of European scientists in theoretical computer science and experts in industry.
International Joint Conference on Theoretical Computer Science, a high-level academic platform in the field of theoretical computer science, is devoted to providing opportunities for Chinese scholars to present their research works, strengthening cooperation with each other and the relationship with market and society, thus promoting theoretical computer science in China.
