I'm a 2nd year masters student studying theoretical CS (algorithms to be precise). I would like to know if there are any public synchronous discussion groups (slack, discord, etc.) for TCS. CSTheory StackExchange works well when someone has a specific question/query, but I felt it would be awesome to have an online forum for people interested in TCS to discuss about various developments of the field and also talk about interesting papers and concepts.
If enough people are interested we could create one in discord.
As we have gained enough traction, I would like to know your opinions on how to proceed further. Some questions on top of my mind -
- How should it be structured and what is the scope of the discussion
- As I'm still an amateur, I would need some guidance from mods on how to go about this in general. And preferably some more volunteers.
- Also I would like to know what platforms do the people up-voted prefer.
Interested people, please fill this poll
I have created a group in Zulip
