Re : Special One-day Symposium in Honor of Robert W. Boyd and M. Parker Givens.


In conjunction with our Spring 2002 Institute of Optics Industrial Associates Meeting April 9 and 10th, we are having a special one-day Symposium on Monday April 8th in honor of Prof. Robert W. Boyd, who was recently named the M. Parker Givens Chair Professor of Optics, and Parker Givens himself. We are inviting all former students of Bob and Parker to come and give a presentation on technical or business issues, or simply to share personal recollections of their time here as students. You are welcome to join us for the Industrial Associates Meeting as well, where we will have a series of guest, faculty and student speakers on Tuesday April 9 and 10. Please let us know if you will be able to join us for either or both of these events. You can contact Gayle Thompson at 716-275-0056 or gayle@optics.rochester.edu to RSVP and/or for information relating to these special events. You may contact me directly with your title and 25 word abstract if you wish to give a presentation.

The day will culminate in a reception on Monday evening. This is sure to be a memorable event. Please come to Rochester and help us honor both of these distinguished scholars and educators.

Sincerely yours

Wayne H. Knox
