Aravind Srinivasan is a Professor with the Department of Computer Science and the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. He received his undergraduate degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, and his Ph.D. from Cornell University, both in Computer Science. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and at DIMACS. He has also worked in industrial research, at Bell Labs. Aravind Srinivasan's research interests are in randomized algorithms, networking, social networks, and combinatorial optimization, as well as in the growing confluence of algorithms, networks, and randomness, in fields including the social Web, machine learning, public health, biology, and energy. He has published more than 100 papers in these areas, in journals including Nature, Journal of the ACM, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, and the SIAM Journal on Computing. He is Editor-in-Chief of the ACM Transactions on Algorithms, Managing Editor for Theory of Computing, Associate Editor of Networks, and has served on the program committees of various conferences.

Van Vu obtained his PhD in Mathematics in 1998 at Yale under the direction of Laszlo Lovasz. He worked at the IAS (Princeton), Microsoft Research, UC San Diego and Rutgers Univ. before moving to Yale in 2011, where he holds the Percy Smith chair in mathematics. Vu's research interest includes combinatorics, probability, number theory and computer science. He was awarded the Polya prize in 2008 for his works on concentration of measure and the Fulkerson prize in 2012 for his works on random graphs. Dr Vu is a Sloan fellows and a fellows of the AMS. In 2007, he was the director of the Arithmetic Combinatorics program at the Institute for Advance Studies (Princeton). He was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) in 2014 and a Medallion speaker at the 8th World Congress in Statistics and Probability (2012).
