Paris Kanellakis Memorial Workshop
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Principles of Computing and Knowledge:
Paris C. Kanellakis Memorial Workshop
8 June 2003, San Diego, CA (affiliated with FCRC)
This one-day meeting, held in the year of Paris Kanellakis' 50th
birthday, commemorates Paris's legacy to computer science. It is
a retrospective of his work and a celebration of his impact on
computer science, through his research and through its influence
on research directions taken by the computer science community.
The program will include invited talks by Moshe Vardi, Christos
Papadimitriou, and Gene Myers, winner of the 2001 ACM Kanellakis
Theory and Practice Award. The day will be capped by a banquet
where colleagues and friends will share personal recollections
The PCK50 workshop is affiliated with the ACM 2003 Federated
Computing Research Conference (FCRC 2003); registration is
through the FCRC site (http://www.regmaster.com/fcrc2003.html).
Registration fees are $145 for ACM members, $165 for non-members,
which INCLUDES the banquet on June 8. Student registration is
