"China Theory Week" is hosted by the Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences (IIIS) at Tsinghua University, Beijing. This one-week academic workshop has been held every year since 2007.
The purpose of this workshop is to provide a platform for top CS theory students from institutions worldwide to meet, learn about recent developments, and present their research. Each year a few senior researchers are invited to attend the workshop as well. The workshop is meant to be an informal opportunity for participants to exchange ideas and make new connections. CTW is an invitation-only event. Approximately 25-30 students are invited each year.
