The workshop will involve technical talks both days, followed by a banquet
Saturday evening. Participants will include former students, friends,
and colleagues who have worked with Prof. Borodin.

Allan Borodin is a native of New Jersey. He received his BA degree
in Mathematics from Rutgers in 1963 and his MSc degree in Electrical
Engineering and Computer Science from Stevens Institute of Technology
in 1966, while working at Bell Labs.
In 1969, he received his PhD in Computer Science from Cornell University.
He then joined the faculty at the University of Toronto and served as
the Chairman of the Department of Computer Science from 1980-1985 and
1992-1993. His main research activities include complexity theory (with
particular interest in time-space tradeoffs), online algorithms, and
packet routing. His book with Ran El-Yaniv "Online Computation
and Competitive Analysis" has recently appeared and is the first
textbook in the area.
Professor Borodin is an editor for four journals, including the SIAM
Journal on Computing (for which he was managing editor). He was the
chair of the 27th Annual ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing in 1995
and has been the chair of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee
for Mathematics of Computation since 1992. He was also the chairman
of the Advisory Board, ETS Graduate Record Examinations for Computer
Science from 1989 to 1993.
Allan Borodin was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in
