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

The fifth Workshop on Local Algorithms (WOLA 2021) will take place virtually on June 14th and 15th, 2021. Participation is FREE, but please register at 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:
