In celebration of Samuel Buss's 60th birthday, we are organizing an Omni Buss celebration. As Sam's work has had major impact on many areas of mathematics and computer science, including logic, proof complexity computational complexity, algorithms and graphics, the celebration will feature an eclectic combination of speakers.

The event will take place at the Computer Science and Engineering building at UC San Diego. See map.
