What is STOC?

Posted by Kuram
I just was asked this question and obviously failed to answer...

It appreared that interviewer was looking for Symposium on Theory of Computing (STOC) by ACM Special Interest Group on Algorithms and Computation Theory which was held some time early this year as he wanted to know if I am following latest trends in algorithms and data analysis.

IMHO, this is awful interview question. I am head down to coding most of the time and the only articles I am reading are the specs written by PMs...
