Program for the Lindstrom Retirement Workshop (and Festschrift)
Welcome to the webpage that attempts to coordinate our
planned activities centered around
the Lindstrom Retirement Workshop (and Festschrift)
``Gary-Fest'' for short)
that would be celebrated on 5-May-07 (Cinco Mayo).
The idea behind Gary-Fest is to reminisce all his great
contributions to the profession, and to our individual
It clearly is also pay-back time for all his fizzled jokes

2 General Notes
The main events will be held on 5-May-07 in Meeting Room C
of the University of Utah Guest House.
Parking: Park at the Guest House or at the Officer's Club nearby (overflow).
The TRAX cuts through campus and stops right next to the Guest House (well, at the
other end of a long pedestrian bridge).
- A registration fee of $40 is required from
each participant to cover the costs of the dinner and
snacks on 5-May-07, to help prepare the participants' edition
of Gary's FestSchrift (being planned), to give you
one free wine/beverage ticket for the dinner of 5-May-07,
and also to buy lunches and munchies.
You may write a personal check in my name (Ganesh
Gopalakrishnan). Excess proceeds will be applied to
a suitable noble cause (which can be discussed, or I shall
reveal the same, if you trust me to take an
appropriate decision). Sorry, no credit cards. Cash
- A block of rooms will be reserved for the
accommodation of guests for the nights of
4-May-07 (Fri) and 5-May-07 (Sat).
To determine the block size,
all requests received by firstname.lastname@example.org
will be tallied, and that many rooms will be attempted
to be held as a courtesy room-block (meaning, nobody
will be penalized if those rooms are not rented out).
If we cannot make the room block happen, we will inform you.
- You still are responsible for making your own
reservations, by contacting the Guest House.
The courtesy room-block is only to try and
ensure that there will be a room when you try to book.
- If you want to arrive, but will be making your own
accommodations, feel free to do so.
- Guests arriving Friday evening sufficiently
early (e.g. checked in at a place within a few miles
of downtown by 6pm)
may, if they like to go to dinner as a group,
by 1-May-07, to permit a reservation
to be obtained. I'm thinking of booking tables at Squatters
or another brew-pub (which also serves dinner).
(Note: This is not a free dinner.)
- Each invited speaker is allotted 30 minutes for his/her
talk, including time for discussions.
- All invited speakers may kindly submit a 10-page (or so)
paper, emailed to email@example.com (we can discuss the
format separately). The Editor of ENTCS, Mike Mislove,
welcomes a special issue (Festschrift) of ENTCS, if the
theme is generally situated around programming
languages / software engineering, and there are sufficient
number of papers.
