About CFCS

Founded in December 2017, the Center on Frontiers of Computing Studies (CFCS), Peking University (PKU), is a university new initiative co-founded by Professor John E. Hopcroft (Turing Laureate) and Professor Wen Gao (CAE, ACM/IEEE Fellow). The center stands in the frontier of computer science, working closely with top universities and research institutions across the world, to build the world-class research center of theoretical computer science and a supporting center for interdisciplinary applications. Research areas span theoretical computing, artificial intelligence, computing and economics, bioscience, medical health...

 

The center aims at developing the excellence on two fronts: research and education. On the research front, the center provides a world-class research environment, where innovation and impactful research is the central aim, measured by professional reputation among world scholars, not by counting the number of publications and research funding. On the education front, the center is deeply involved in the Turing Class, an elite undergraduate program that draws the cream of the crop from the PKU undergraduate talent pool. New curriculum and pedagogy are designed and practiced in this program, cultivating a new generation of computer scientist/engineers who are solid in both theories and practices.
