The program of FOCS 2006 is online. According to persistent rumors, the conference will be held in Berkeley.
The program lists Xi Chen (陈 西?) and Xiaotie Deng (邓 小铁?) as winners of the best paper award, for resolving the complexity of the problem of computing Nash equilibria, one of the fundamental (formerly) open questions in computational game theory. Nicholas Harvey receives the best student paper award.
Update (9/4/96): registration is open.
