This year the annual NZMRI summer workshop will be based in beautiful Kaikoura in the South Island of New Zealand. This follows previous workshops in Huia (1994), Tolaga Bay (1996, 1997), Napier (1998) and Raglan (1999). The topic for Kaikoura 2000 will be
"Computability, Complexity, and Computational Algebra,"although this will be interpreted broadly. As usual, families are invited to come. We especially encourage New Zealand graduate and senior students, and ask that most of the talks be directed at a graduate student level. The standard format is that we have lectures in the morning, the afternoons are left free for individual persuits, families, sightseeing, whale watching, mathematical discussions, and the like, and we have lectures in the early evening after dinner. There will also be one day off (traditionally Wednesday).
We have a stellar group of speakers, all of whom are world renowned mathematicians and computer scientists, and very fine speakers. We have asked that the speakers give a series of 1-3 lectures for this workshop, the first two being easily accessible to graduate students.
Our speakers include
The workshop is primarily being organized by Rod Downey of Victoria University <firstname.lastname@example.org>, who will be happy to answer any questions.
