### From the Minimax Theorem, through Alpha-Beta, and beyond...
This will be a discussion of the pitfalls of using mathematics and algorithms to play classical board games. Thorough descriptions shall be presented of the simple techniques used as the building blocks that make all modern computer game players. I will use tic-tac-toe as a control for my arguments. Other games such as Chess, Othello and Go shall be the be a greater measure of progress; and more importantly the targets of our dreams.
To enhance the discussion of the future, Barney Pell's Metagamer shall be introduced. His work in define classes of games is important in identifying the features necessary for analysis.

What is the next step in the evolution of computer languages? Intelligent agents? Distributed objects? or visual languages?
Visual languages overcome many of the drawbacks and limitations of the textual languages that software development is based on today. Do you think about programming in a linear fashion? Or do you draw a mental picture of your algorithm and then linearize it for the benefit of your compiler? Wouldn't it be nice if you could code the same way you think?
Visual C++ and Visual BASIC aren't visual languages, but Prograph is. Prograph is a commercially available, visual, object-oriented, data-flow language. It is well suited to graphical user interface development, but is as powerful for general-purpose programming as any textual language.
The talk will comprise a discussion of the problems of textual languages that visual languages solve, a live demonstration of Prograph, and some of my observations of the applications of Prograph to software development.

By Edgar Dijkstra
This talk will use partial orders, lattice theory, and, if time permits, the Galois connection as carriers to illustrate the use of calculi in mathematics. We hope to show the brevity of many calculations (in order to fight the superstition that formal proofs are necessarily impractically long), and the strong heuristic guidance that is available for their design.
Dijkstra is known for early graph-theoretical algorithms, the first implementation of ALGOL 60, the first operating system composed of explicitly synchronized processes, the invention of guarded commands and of predicate transformers as a means for defining semantics, and programming methodology in the broadest sense of the word.
His current research interests focus on the formal derivation of proofs and programs, and the streamlining of the mathematical argument in general.
Dijkstra held the Schlumberger Centennial Chair in Computer Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin until retiring in October.

Debugging can be the most difficult and time consuming part of any program's life-cycle. Far from an exact science, it's more of an art ... and close to some kind of dark magic. Cryptic error messages, lousy error checking, and icky things like implicit casts can make it nearly impossible to know what's going on inside your program.
Several tools are available to help automate your debugging. GDB and Purify are among the most powerful debugging tools available in a UNIX environment. GDB is an interactive debugger, allowing you to \`step' through a program, examine function calls, variable contents, stack traces and let you look at the state of a program after it crashes. Purify is a commercial program designed to help find and remove memory leaks from programs written in languages without automatic garbage collection.
This talk will cover how to compile your C and C++ programs for use with GDB and Purify, as well as how to use the available X interfaces. If a purify license is available on undergrad at the time of the talk, we will cover how to use it during runtime.

The Future Computing Environments (FCE) Group at Georgia Tech is a collection of faculty and students that share a desire to understand the partnership between humans and technology that arises as computation and sensing become ubiquitous. With expertise covering the breadth of Computer Science, but focusing on HCI, Computational Perception, and Machine Learning, the individual research agendas of the FCE faculty are grounded in a number of shared "living laboratories" where their research is applied to everyday life in the classroom (Classroom 2000), the home (the Aware Home), the office (Augmented Offices), and on one's person. Professors MacIntyre and Mynatt will discuss a variety of these projects, with an emphasis on the HCI and Computer Science aspects of the FCE work.
In addition to their affiliation with the FCE group, Professors Mynatt and MacIntyre are both members of the Graphics, Visualization and Usability Center (GVU) at Georgia Tech. This interdisciplinary center brings together research in computer science, psychology, industrial engineering, architecture and media design by examining the role of computation in our everyday lives. During the talk, they will touch on some of the research and educational opportunities available at both GVU and the College of Computing.

### Abstract
The Internet and the Web have revolutionized our communications, our access to information and our business methods. However, there is still much room for improvement. Frank Clegg will discuss Microsoft's vision for what is beyond browsing and the dotcom. Microsoft .NET (pronounced "dot-net") is a new platform, user experience and set of advanced software services planned to make all devices work together and connect seamlessly. With this next generation of software, Microsoft's goal is to make Internet-based computing and communications easier to use, more personalized, and more productive for businesses and consumers. In his new position of president of Microsoft Canada Co., Frank Clegg will be responsible for leading the organization toward the delivery of Microsoft .NET. He will speak about this new platform and the next generation Internet, how software developers and businesses will be able to take advantage of it, and what the .NET experience will look like for consumers and business users.
### The Speaker
Frank Clegg was appointed president of Microsoft Canada Co. this month. Prior to his new position, Mr. Clegg was vice-president, Central Region, Microsoft Corp. from 1996 to 2000. In this capacity, he was responsible for sales, support and marketing activities in 15 U.S. states. Mr. Clegg joined Microsoft Corp. in 1991 and headed the Canadian subsidiary until 1996. During that time, Mr. Clegg was instrumental in introducing several key initiatives to improve company efficiency, growth and market share. Mr. Clegg graduated from the University of Waterloo in 1977 with a B. Math.

Our ACM-Style practice contests involve answering five questions in three hours. Solutions are written in Pascal, C or C++. Seven years in a row, Waterloo's teams have been in the top ten at the world finals. For more information, see [the contest web page](<http://plg.uwaterloo.ca/~acm00/>).
### Easy Question:
A palindrome is a sequence of letters that reads the same backwards and forwards, such as \`\`Madam, I'm Adam'' (note that case doesn't matter and only letters are important). Your task is to find the longest palindrome in a line of text (if there is a tie, print the leftmost one).

### Hard Question:
An anagram is a word formed by reordering the letters of another word. Find all sets of anagrams that exist within a large dictionary. The input will be a sorted list of words (up to 4000 words), one per line. Output each set of anagrams on a separate line. Each set should be in alphabetical order, and all lines of sets should be in alphabetical order. A word with no anagrams is a set of anagrams itself, and should be displayed with no modifications.

---
Virtual memory management is one of the cornerstones of multiuser operating systems. Most systems available today place all of the policy in a monolithic virtual memory manager, VMM, isolated from the rest of the system. Although secure and lightweight, users have no way to communicate their anticipated memory needs and usage to the system pager. As a result, the VMM can only implement a global paging policy (typically, an approximation of LRU) which may be good on average but is best for nobody.
With the port of Hurd to the L4 microkernel, this situation is being readdressed. Due to its more distributed nature, a centralized resource manager is not only more difficult to implement efficiently but also contrary to the philosophy of the rest of the system. We are currently exploring a model whereby each program is fully self-paged and all compete for memory from a physical memory server. This talk will first discuss how paging currently works in Mach and other systems. An argument for an external paging policy will then be presented followed by the requirements of such a design and the design itself.

This whirlwind talk is aimed at providing an overview of the GNU/Linux port for the HP PARISC processor. The talk will focus on the "intricacies" of the processor, and in particular the implementations of the Linux kernel and GNU Libc. After the talk you should be acutely aware of how little code needs to be written to support a new architecture! Carlos has been working on the port for two years, and enjoying the fruits of his labour on a 46-node PARISC cluster.
---
Carlos is currently in his 5th year of study at the University of Western Ontario. This is his last year in a concurrent Computer Engineering and Computer Science degree. His research interest range from distributed and parallel systems to low level optimized hardware design. He likes playing guitar and just bought a Cort NTL-20, jumbo body, solid spruce top with a mahogany back. Carlos hacks on the PARISC Linux kernel, GNU libc, GNU Debugger, GNU Binutils and various Debian packages.

Modern graphics accelerators, or "GPUs", have embedded high-performance programmable components in the form of vertex and fragment shading units. Recently, these units have evolved from 8-bit computations to floating-point, and other operations provide array gather, scatter, and summation. These capabilities make GPUs akin to array processors of the past, but with a difference: every PC now has one! I am interested in finding the best way to exploit this computational capacity for not only graphics but for general-purpose computation.
Current APIs permit specification of the programs for GPUs using an assembly-language level interface. Compilers for high-level shading languages are available, such as NVIDIA's Cg, and OpenGL 2.0 and DirectX will also include standardized shading languages. This talk will review these. However, compilers for these languages read in an external string specification, which can be inconvenient.
However, it is possible, using standard C++, to define a high-level shading language directly in the API. Such a language can be nearly indistinguishable from a special-purpose programming language, yet permits more direct interaction with the specification of textures (arrays) and parameters, simplifies implementation, and enables on-the-fly generation, manipulation, and specialization of shader programs. A shading language built into the API also permits the lifting of C++ host language type, modularity, and scoping constructs into the shading language without any additional implementation effort. Such an embedded language could be used to program other embedded processors (such as DSP chips in sound cards) or even to generate machine language on the fly for the host CPU.

Whenever a language is designed by a committee, it is common wisdom to avoid it. Not so with Perl, for it cannot get worse. However strange these Perl people seem, Perl 6 is a good thing coming. In this talk, I will demonstrate some Perl 5 programs, and talk about their Perl 6 counterparts, to show you that Perl 6 will be cleaner, friendlier, and prettier.

Samba is a free implementation of the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. It also implements the Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol, used by Microsoft Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP to share files and printers.
SMB was originally developed in the early to mid-80's by IBM and was further improved by Microsoft, Intel, SCO, Network Appliances, Digital and many others over a period of 15 years. It has now morphed into CIFS, a form strongly influenced by Microsoft.
Samba is considered to be one of the key projects for the acceptance of GNU/Linux and other Free operating systems (e.g. FreeBSD) in the corporate world: a traditional Windows NT/2000 stronghold.
We will talk about interfacing Samba servers and desktops with the Windows world. From a simple GNU/Linux desktop in your home to the corporate server that provides collaborative file/printer sharing, logons and home directories to hundreds of users a day.

Templates are a useful feature in C++ when it comes to writing type-independent data structures and algorithms. Relatively soon after their appearance it was realised that they could be used to do much more than this. Essentially it is possible to write certain programs in C++ that execute *completely at compile time* rather than run time. Combined with constant-expression optimisation this is an interesting twist on regular C++ programming.
This talk will give a short overview of the features of templates and then go on to describe how to "abuse" templates to perform complex computations at compile time. The speaker will present three programs of increasing complexity which execute at compile time. First a factorial listing program, then a prime listing program will be presented. Finally the talk will conclude with the presentation of a **Mandelbrot generator running at compile time**.
If you are interested in programming for the fun of it, the C++ language or silly tricks to do with languages, this talk is for you. No C++ knowledge should be necessary to enjoy this talk, but programming experience will make it more worthwile for you.

This talk is a walk through the Hurd RPCs, and will give an overview of how they are used to implement the system. Individual RPCs will be used to illustrate important or exciting features of the Hurd system in general, and it will be shown how those features are accessible to the user at the command line, too.

The Asian game go is unique in a number of ways. It is the oldest board game known. It is a strategy game with very simple rules. Computer programs are very weak despite huge efforts and prizes of US$ > 1.5M for a program beating professional players. The talk will quickly explain the rules of go, compare go and chess, mention various attempts to program go and describe our own efforts in this field. Students will have an opportunity to solve computer generated go problems. Prizes will be available.

GnuPG and PGP provide public-key based encryption for e-mail and other electronic communication. In addition to preventing others from reading your private e-mail, this allows you to verify that an e-mail or file was indeed written by its perceived author.
In order to make sure a GnuPG/PGP key belongs to the respective person, the key must be signed by someone who has checked the user's key fingerprint and verified the user's identification.
A keysigning party is an ideal occasion to have your key signed by many people, thus strengthening the authority of your key. Everyone showing up exchanges key signatures after verifying ID and fingerprints. The Computer Science Club will be hosting such a keysigning party together with the Hurd presentation by THUG (see separate announcement). See [ the keysigning party homepage](<http://www.student.math.uwaterloo.ca/~sjdutoit/>) for more information.
Before attending it is important that you mail your key to sjdutoit@uwaterloo.ca with the subject \`\`keysigning.'' Also make sure to bring photo ID and a copy of your GnuPG/PGP fingerprint on a sheet of paper to the event.

.NET is Microsoft's new development platform, including amongst other things a language called C# and a class library for various operating system services. .NET aims to be portable, although it is currently mostly only used on Windows systems.
With the full backing of Microsoft, it seems unlikely that .NET will disappear any time soon. There are several efforts underway to bring .NET to the GNU/Linux platform. Hosted by the Computer Science Club, this talk will discuss a number of the issues surrounding .NET and Linux.

Free and Open Source software has been around for a long time, even longer then shrink-wrapped code. It has a long and noble history in the annals of education. Even more than ever, due to the drop of hardware prices and the increase of worldwide communications, Free and Open Source can open new avenues of teaching and doing research, not only in computer science, but in other university fields as well.
Learn how Linux as an operating system can run on anything from a PDA to a supercomputer, and how Linux is reducing the cost of computing dramatically as the fastest growing operating system in the world. Learn how other Free and Open Source projects, such as office suites, audio and video editing and playing software, relational databases, etc. are created and are freely available.
[Map and directions](<http://www.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/~cpbell/>)

Sh is a GPU metaprogramming language developed at the University of Waterloo Computer Graphics Lab. It allows graphics programmers to write programs which run directly on the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) using familiar C++ syntax. Furthermore, it allows metaprogramming of such programs, that is, writing programs which generate other programs, in an easy and natural manner.
This talk will give a brief overview of how Sh works, the design of its intermediate representation and the (still somewhat simplistic) optimizer that the current reference implementation has and problems with applying traditional compiler optimizations.
Stefanus Du Toit is an undergraduate student at the University of Waterloo. He is also a Research Assistant for Michael McCool from the University of Waterloo Graphics Lab. Over the Summer of 2003 Stefanus reimplemented the Sh reference implementation and designed and implemented the current Sh optimizer.
