Tribute to Honor Jim Gray
May 31, 2008 @ UC Berkeley
Jim Gray’s family, friends and colleagues have arranged a public day of talks and reminiscences in his honor, to be held on May 31, 2008, at UC Berkeley. All are welcome.
Although Dr. Gray will be officially listed as missing until 2012, his family has asked that we have this Tribute now, to honor him before too much time has passed.
There are two parts to the Tribute. The General Session that begins the day is intended for the general public. The Technical Sessions will go through the afternoon, and are intended for a computer science audience. The organizers request that people wishing to attend the Technical Sessions register in advance on the web, to facilitate planning.
More information, including the program for the day, registration forms, and information on accommodations is available on the web at http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/IPRO/JimGrayTribute. Questions about event logistics may be directed to email@example.com .
The search for Dr. Gray is detailed in Wired Magazine’s article: http://www.wired.com/techbiz/people/magazine/15-08/ff_jimgray
