Jane's Walk Waterloo Region: Celebrating 50 years of Computer Science (CS) at UWaterloo

Saturday, May 6, 2017 - 1:00 pm

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the School of Computer Science by attending a Jane's Walk

The University of Waterloo is known internationally as a place of technological advancement and innovation. The David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science has played a very large role in creating that profile. With over 80 research faculty, the School has become Canada's largest concentration of academic computer science researchers.

This Jane's Walk will explore the places where those initial ideas began to bubble to fruition and attendees will get to know the individuals who helped build the backbone of Waterloo's computing history.
