Working Together to Shape Tomorrow

Chen Greif
Professor Chen Greif

Thank you to our alumni, staff, students, volunteers, local industry partners and sponsors, and our distinguished award winners for making UBC Computer Science 50th Anniversary such a success! The 50th Anniversary year kicked off May 11 & 12, 2018 with a weekend full of inspirational talks and the opportunity for all to reconnect. We celebrated and recognized our finest at a dinner and awards ceremony and had the pleasure of introducing Dr. Margo Seltzer as the joint Chairholder of the Cheriton Family Chair in Computer Science and the Canada 150 Research Chair in Computer Systems.

We will continue to celebrate and engage with the broader community in thinking critically about the opportunities and challenges that computing presents in the next 50 years. Over the next year we will host additional distinguished lecturers, panel discussions, alumni networking events and industry hosted student lectures culminating in a final year-end celebration in May 2019.

We look forward to seeing you throughout this milestone year.

Professor Chen Greif, Head, Department of Computer Science
