In 2008, the Committee for the Advancement of Theoretical Computer Science convened a workshop to brainstorm directions and talking points for TCS
program managers at funding agencies to advocate for theory funding. The event was quite productive and successful.
A second such workshop is going to be held, online, in the third week of July. Applications to participate are due on June 15, a week from today. Organizers expect that participants will have to devote about four hours of their time to the workshop, and those who volunteer to be team leads will have a time commitment of about ten hours.
