The 20th International Conference on

RANDOM STRUCTURES AND ALGORITHMS

1-5 August, 2022
RS&A2021

The conference is postponed to 2022.

New dates: August 1-5, 2022.

Dear Potential Participants of RS&A 2021,

Early this year we promised that we would make a final decision regarding the "fate" of the conference by the end of April. We believe that all of us would prefer to meet each other in person rather than via the Internet connection. Unfortunately, the current pandemic situation in Poland, as well as, in the whole of Europe, although substantially improving, is still quite unstable. Therefore organizing a "real" conference this coming August would bring some non-negligible risk factors.
On the other hand, the next RS&A conference is supposed to be the last one in the foregoing format. As it was already discussed during the previous conference in Zurich, we are planning to hand over the baton to an international programme committee. Understandably, we would strongly prefer to "crown" the history of Poznan conferences by a traditional meeting.
For the above-mentioned reasons, we decided to postpone the conference for a year and hold it in Gniezno on August 1-5, 2022. We do hope that it will provide us all with an opportunity to gather together safely.
We are happy to announce that all invited speakers supported our decision and confirmed their participation in the next year's event. Our conference website rsa2021.amu.edu.pl is still working and we expect to issue the next announcement at the beginning of 2022.

Looking forward to seeing you in Gniezno in 2022,
The organizers

P.S. By the way, the current posponement is not the first one in the history of the conference. Most of you may not know that the first RS&A meeting was originally planned for 1982 and had to be postponed by one year, though for quite a different reason (martial law was imposed in Poland at the end of 1981).
