This year's Organick Lecture at the University of Utah will be delivered by Jeannette Wing, President's Professor of Computer Science and Head of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. In keeping with tradition, the lecture consists of two parts, a general interest lecture and a research lecture.
The general interest lecture, entitled "Computational Thinking" will be on Wed April 25, 2007 at 7:30 p.m. in the 220 Aline Wilmot Skaggs Biology Research Building on the University of Utah campus. The research lecture will be on "Automatic Generation and Analysis of Attack Graphs" and will be given on Thursday, April 26, 2007 at 3:20 p.m. in the same place.
Last year, Alan Kaye was the lecturer and delivered two great talks one on The 100 Dollar Laptop and one entitled is Computer Science and Oxymoron? The year before I listened to Vint Cerf give a very good lecture on Internet Challenges.
If you're in Utah and interested in computers, it's silly to let preeminent computer scientists come to town and not go listen. Past Organick Lectures have been extremely valuable to me. I view this as one of the premiere tech events in Utah each year. See you there.
