FUN is dedicated to the use, design and analysis of algorithms and data structures, focusing on results that provide amusing, witty but nonetheless original and scientifically profound contributions to the area. The topics of interest include (but are not limited to): FUN with biological algorithms – combinatorial algorithms – cryptographic algorithms – distributed algorithms – game-theoretic algorithms – geometrical algorithms – graph algorithms – mobile algorithms – machine learning algorithms – optimization algorithms – parallel algorithms – randomized algorithms – robotics algorithms – space-conscious algorithms – string algorithms – visualization of algorithms – web algorithms and algorithmic simplicity new!

So what's going to be future fun? My go-to's are sunlight (I'm part plant), music (all genera, all day) and strange humor that makes me laugh (How To with John, Painting with John. Yes, South Park too.)

Laughter really is the best medicine? Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body's natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
What's your prediction for future fun?
