Conference in honor of Donald E. Knuth
On October 30, 2007, the University Bordeaux 1 will award an Honoris Causa degree to Donald E. Knuth. For nearly four decades now, he has been composing an enclyclopaedia entitled "The Art of Computer Programming" , considered as one of the major scientific works of the 20th century. His coming to Bordeaux is an opportunity to sketch out a panorama of research in algorithmics in France. For such a large domain, it is out of question to pretend to exhaustivity. Five personalities of the field have been invited to give a conference and a call for communications has been sent.
Donald Knuth will use this opportunity to give a talk about Pistols and BDDs
