Heading South

Starting in July, I'll be chair of the School of Computer Science in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. Annie Antón from NC State will chair the School of Interactive Computing. Here's the official announcement. I'm truly excited to be working with Annie, the Dean of Computing Zvi Galil and the incredible faculty there to move Georgia Tech forward.

I can anticipate many of your questions: How does moving from the land of Lincoln to the land of Lipton affect the blog? How do I get a job at Georgia Tech? Wait, does this mean there is a theory opening at Northwestern? Is this really the fourth job you've had since starting the blog ten years ago? All in due time.

  1. Congratulations Lance! But do you have regrets about leaving? This must be a big loss to theory and econcs at Northwestern.

  2. Yeah, I also think Lance should list here his regrets about leaving Northwestern. This is the best place to do so, and he showed such interest in doing so in the post.

  4. That's the downside of changing jobs. We really do have something special at Northwestern and it is tough to give that up.

    I'll have a full goodbye to Northwestern post before I leave.

  6. While I'm a student at GSU, rather than GaTech, it is nice to have more prestigious researchers in our city! Congrats. Atlanta welcomes you!
