============================================

The fifth Workshop on Local Algorithms (WOLA 2021) will take place 
virtually on June14th and 15th, 2021. Participation is FREE, but please 
register at https://www.local-algorithms.com/?page=register 
<https://www.local-algorithms.com/?page=register>by June 10th.

Local algorithms --- that is, algorithms that compute and make decisions 
on parts of the output considering only a portion of the input --- have 
been studied in a number of areas in theoretical computer science and 
mathematics. Some of the related areas include sublinear-time 
algorithms, distributed algorithms, streaming algorithms, (massively) 
parallel algorithms, inference in large networks, and graphical models. 
These communities have similar goals but a variety of approaches, 
techniques, and methods. This workshop is aimed at fostering dialogue 
and cross-pollination of ideas between the various communities.

This year, the workshop will include:

  * A poster session: Please submit your poster proposal (title and
    abstract) at https://www.local-algorithms.com/?page=call-for-posters
    <https://www.local-algorithms.com/?page=call-for-posters>by May
    26th.Everyone is invited to contribute. This session will take place
    on gather.town.
  * Invited long talks: Please find the tentative schedule at
    https://www.local-algorithms.com/?page=schedule
    <https://www.local-algorithms.com/?page=schedule>.
  * An "Ask Me Anything" session:Moderated by Merav Parter.
  * Junior-senior social meetings:More details soon to come.
  * A slack channel:More details soon to come.
  * Open problem session:More details soon to come.
