The 2005 ACM Turing Lecture Live Webcast

Monday, August 15, 2005 at 6:45 PM


For all members of UP ACM and the faculty of UP Diliman's College of Engineering:


The Association for Computing Machinery - University of the Philippines Student Chapter (UP ACM) will be holding for the first time the live webcast of the ACM Alan M. Turing Award Lecture at the ACM SIGCOMM 2005 (Data Communications Conference) delivered at the Irvine Auditorium, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.

Vinton G. Cerf and Robert E. Kahn, recipients of the 2004 A.M.Turing Award and pioneers of the Internet, will lecture on "Assessing the Internet: Lessons Learned, Strategies for Evolution, and Future Possibilities."

The Turing Award, named after the British mathematician considered to be one of the fathers of modern computer science, is dubbed as the "Nobel Prize of Computing."

ACM, through its award-winning Philippine Chapter, UP ACM, in partnership with the Department of Computer Science, will be sponsoring this rare event here in the College of Engineering. Since the lecture will begin in the US at 6:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on August 22, 2005, we will be able to view the webcast live at 6:00 AM, August 23, 2005 here in the Philippines. Tentative event venue will be the College of Engineering Theater. Refreshments will be provided to all attendees who make reservations on or before Friday, August 19, 2005.

The official press release on the 2004 Turing Award from ACM International can be found here.

Will do, Kuya Harv. :) Sorry I wasn't able to do so earlier -- time constraints.
