The Department of Computer Science will host a daylong workshop to celebrate the work of Edward M. Reingold and his 70th birthday on Monday, October 12.

Reingold has worked in the design and analysis of algorithms for over 45 years. He was named a fellow of the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) in 1996 for “significant research and educational contributions to data structures and the analysis of combinatorial algorithms.”

The October 12 workshop in honor of Reingold, called “Alogithms and Applications,” will feature speakers from more than a dozen top universities who will talk about their work with or inspired by Reingold and the impact of his work on computer science theory and its application to artificial intelligence and other areas.

Dershowitz will give the talk “Why calendars?” He and Reingold wrote the book Calendrical Calculations (2001) on calendrical algorithms for easy conversions among the world’s current and historical calendars. A special lunch will feature personal recollections by colleagues and friends. They will include Thomas Fruchterman, with whom Reingold wrote “Graph Drawing by Force-Directed Placement.”
