Event description: 

On behalf of Joan Feigenbaum, Department Chair and Grace Murray Hopper Professor of Computer Science:

The Yale Department of Computer Science invites you to a symposium to honor our beloved colleague, Prof. Paul Hudak, whose untimely death last year was a tremendous loss to Yale and the Computer Science community. Paul’s 30 years at Yale were marked by groundbreaking scholarship, academic leadership and unmatched teaching and service as the Master of Saybrook College and the advisor to countless undergraduate and graduate students. Paul was a man of many talents and he expressed them passionately.

Please join us for the symposium which will be held on Friday, April 29th and Saturday, April 30th on the Yale Campus. The program starts Friday at 9am in the Sheffield-Sterling-Strathcona Auditorium (1 Prospect Street) with technical presentations featuring many of Paul’s students and colleagues. Friday evening at 6pm there will be a reception with Paul’s family. On Saturday at 9am in Davies Auditorium (15 Prospect Street) the symposium resumes with a celebration of Paul’s life and work. It will be an opportunity for everyone to share their memories of Paul. This will be followed by a light lunch and open house in Arthur K. Watson Hall (51 Prospect Street) showcasing current research in the department lasting until 2pm.
