Silver Flame: The UP Diliman Computer Science Week 2006

Friday, February 24, 2006 at 11:45 PM
The DCS Firefoxes

UP Diliman's
Department of Computer Science celebrates 25 years of excellence in computing diversity in its week-long Silver Flame, to be held from February 27 to March 3. Everyone's invited to a week filled with symposia, company talks, various competitions, and a culminating night -– all of which showcase the intelligence, innovativeness, and flair that UP DCS students have been known for.

The theme Silver Flame honors the silver anniversary of the Department while highlighting the fiery fervor for the Department's pursuit of excellence; rightfully so, for DCS students are known within the College of Engineering as the DCS Firefoxes.

Incidentally, this is going to be the last time that the UPD DCS shall celebrate its anniversary in Melchor Hall. The department is slated to move to a new, larger building early next year; one can also think of Silver Flame as the Department's grand farewell to the historic edifice.

I'll also try to visit there everyday for the whole week. Hopefully I won't wake up late :D
