New York THEORY DAY 2009


Dear Organizers of IBM Research|NYU|Columbia Theory Day,

You emailed me the ad for Spring 2009 Theory Day. THANKS!
You did this about a week ago. Hence, as is often the
case this is too much short notice to go.
Please announce it earlier in the future.

Also, I could not find on your website a pointer to the
abstracts of this years talks (If I missed it then please
let me know.  Other readers, also let me know.)

And lastly, your page on Recent and Upcoming Theory Days
should be retitled
Theory Days from 2003-2007 or be updated.

                                        bill gasarch

P.S. The talks look AWESOME!

  1. Hi Bill,

    That's a bit of a snarky post -- do we need to disinvite you from Theory Day? :) Seriously, thanks for the nudge; the web page has been updated.

    We're sorry you won't be able to make this Theory Day. You will be missed.

    -- Rocco

  2. Bill,

    Can you please change Muthu's affiliation to "Google Labs and Rutgers University"?

    Sorry for distributing this so late, won't happen again.

    Thanks,
    Yevgeniy
