      CIS @ 20 - Cornell's Computer and Info Science 20th Anniversary

      CIS will host “Inspire • Innovate • Impact: Computing and Information Science @ 20,” an academic symposium Oct. 2-3 that will explore the role of technology in humanity and the history and future of computing at Cornell and around the world.
      “The celebration will be a fun and intellectually stimulating event that will commemorate how CIS has become a model and leader in integrating computing into every university discipline as well as a look forward to how CIS is shaping higher education and technology for the next 20 years,” said Jon Kleinberg, interim dean of CIS and the Tisch University Professor of Computer Science.
      The events – all free and open to the public – will take place in the Statler Ballroom. Registration for events is required.
      Among the events is a fireside chat about the creation of CIS, moderated by President Martha E. Pollack, Oct. 2 from 5:30-6:45 p.m. Members of the panel are: Robert Constable, professor of computer science and founding CIS dean; President Emeritus Hunter R. Rawlings III; Dan Huttenlocher, dean of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Schwarzman College of Computing and former dean of Cornell Tech and CIS; and Greg Morrisett, the Jack and Rilla Neafsey Dean and Vice Provost of Cornell Tech and former dean of CIS, and Claire Cardie, founding chair of the information science department and Cornell computer science professor.
      The Oct. 2 event will also include the viewing of an anniversary video and a domino fall created by Christopher Wright ’20, an engineering student whose domino creations have been featured on “The Tonight Show.” It will be followed by a reception in the Statler Park Atrium featuring CIS-affiliated student clubs and doctoral students presenting research posters.
