The 20th International Workshop on Approximation Algorithms for Combinatorial Optimization Problems (APPROX'2017), and the 21st International Workshop on Randomization and Computation (RANDOM'2017) will be held on the 16-18 of August 2017 at University of California, Berkeley .

APPROX'2017 focuses on algorithmic and complexity theoretic issues relevant to the development of efficient approximate solutions to computationally difficult problems, while RANDOM'2017 focuses on applications of randomness to computational and combinatorial problems. RANDOM'2017 is the twentyfirst workshop in the series; APPROX'2017 is the twentieth in the series.
