    6:00 p.m., Registration & Reception 
    6:30 p.m., Program 
    Le Petit Trianon, 72 N. Fifth St., San Jose 
    $10 for Members, $15 for Non-members 
    Co-sponsored by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute.

Description:

    Join us for a wide ranging overview of computer science from theory
    to practice and from the academic to the commercial, with detours to
    some of Don Knuth's other interests: typography, music and faith.
    Knuth, the father of Computer Science, wrote the bible of
    theoretical computer science, The Art of Computer Programming.
    Google's Sergey Brin brings the young scientist/entrepreneur's view
    of computer science and Microsoft's Jennifer Chayes offers the
    thoughts of an industry researcher and professor in academia.

Peace.
