CompSci -- True Computer Science Mailing List


About CompSci
English (USA)

DEPRECATION NOTICE: This mailing list is no longer actively used and will be decommissioned on 30 June 2021.

This mailing list is dedicated to discussions in the area of what Migs Paraz calls "True CS" -- core computer science topics like data structures, algorithms, automata, and beyond.

Discussions on the list should neither be limited to nor biased for particular operating systems, programming languages, architectures, or what have you. Flamewars on such nitty-gritties will please be done somewhere else in the Universe.

In this list we attempt to abstract ourselves from all reality and discuss problems and solutions as theoretically as the discipline of Computer Science will take us.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the CompSci Archives.
