A "Welcome Home" reception was held on October 30, 2003, in conjunction with the 2003 International Symposium on Modern Computing in honor of Dr. John Vincent Atanasoff's 100th Birthday. Faculty and Staff took this opportunity to honor our retired and emeritus faculty who helped build the Department of Computer Science at ISU. Deans of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences also participated in this heartfelt, warm occasion. Attached is a photo taken outside the Atanasoff Hall for this memorable event.
