67th Midwest Theory Day Weekend took place two weeks ago here at Indiana University, Bloomington organized by Qin Zhang, Yuan Zhou and myself. We were lucky to have a flurry of fantastic speakers from the Midwest and three external headliners: Alex Andoni, Vahab Mirrokni and Ryan O’Donnell. Slides are now posted online.

As organizers we’ve decided to experiment with the format of this MTD making it a 2-day event. Based on feedback we received we believe that this format has worked out perfectly. For a geographically spread out Midwest area travel logistics makes overheads of attending a one-day event often too much for many of those interested to come.
