The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Algebraic Techniques in Theoretical Computer Science" workshop in Oaxaca, from August 29 to September 03, 2021.

Algebraic techniques have become influential in many areas in theoretical computer science, such as: coding theory, hardness of approximation, communication complexity, learning theory, cryptography, sublinear algorithms, coding theory, communication complexity, social choice theory, and more. The workshop will bring together researchers in these areas, allowing them to learn from each other and facilitate new collaborations.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT
