>From our chair of CU-boulder's ACm student chapter...

Hello Boulder ACM and Friends,

My name is Christy Predaina and I am the Chair of the CU Boulder ACM.  I
would like to extend an invitation to anyone in the community who is
interested to come hear a free talk given by Hal Gabow, the current chair of
SIGACT.  This is a wonderful opportunity to hear an ACM Fellow and a man who
is heavily involved in ACM speak about ACM, the SIGs, and his related
experiences.  This is one event that the students of CU's ACM felt might be
of interest to the Boulder ACM and is definitely not to be missed.

Where: CU College of Engineering room ECCR 1B-55
    (park in the East Campus Parking structure and follow the signs)
When: Thursday, November 13 at 5:00 pm

Hal Gabow's Biography:

Stanford in 1974. He has taught at CU since 1973, and became a Full
