This year is the 25th anniversary of London Stringology Days + London Algorithmic Workshop (LSD + LAW).
LSD + LAW were established by my supervisor, Professor Costas Iliopoulos, in 1992 (my birth year!) and have been held at King's College London ever since.
"There was a large community of researchers interested in string algorithms and we would visit each other in small groups, but there was no conference in which we could all come together - so, I decided to organise one myself." - Prof. Iliopoulos
Personally, this will be my third year attending and helping to organise LSD/LAW. I also gave a presentation last year.
Join us at LSD/LAW 2017 next week on 9th and 10th February at the Strand campus of King's College London. Click here to see the full programme and instructuions on how to register for free.
