The Department recently hosted a special Colloquium honoring CIS theory faculty Dr. Andrzej Proskurowski on the occasion of his birthday.
A set of international speakers reviewed research work with Dr. Proskurowski, who has over 50 collaborators as coauthors on publications in the area of graph theory and network algorithms.
Speakers included: Art Farley of the University of Oregon, Dr. Frank Ruskey of University of Victoria and Dr. Joseph Peters of Simon Fraser University, both from Canada; Drs. Jan Kratochvil and Jirka Fiala from Charles University of Prague, Czech Republic, and Dr. Jan-Arne Telle of University of Bergen in Norway.
The following morning, an informal seminar was held presenting recent research and open problems in graph theory with applications to computer science.
