For all of you UW-Madison CS alumni out there... There is an alumni reunion event being pulled together at the last minute. It is scheduled for October 11th, 2008 on campus at the Pyle Center.The following is from an email sent by new Department Chair Mary Vernon.
I am writing to invite you to attend the first UW-Madison Computer Sciences Department Alumni Reunion on October 11, 2008, from 3:30-6:30pm at the UW Pyle Center, next door to the Memorial Union Terrace. We are encouraging all Computer Sciences alumni, from all years and all degrees, to join us for some good food and drink and a chance to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. Please pass this invitation along to the alums you know, in case we don't have their email address. The UW-Madison Computer Sciences Department and the department's Board of Visitors will host this alumni reception. During a short program I will update everyone on recent initiatives in the department and our goals for the future. For hotel rooms and to RSVP for the event, please see our web site: http://www.cs.wisc.edu/alumni Note that alums can also provide us with their current email
address at this site. For those needing a hotel room, PLEASE MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS right away. The hotel blocks begin to close as early as September 1st. Because of other events in Madison that weekend (including a Badger football game) hotel reservations outside the blocks may be difficult to obtain. We have been able to secure a VERY limited number of tickets to the Wisconsin v. Penn State football game at 7pm following the reunion. If you are interested in buying tickets, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP (and please note that we cannot guarantee availability).
