Dear fellow ACM student chapter,

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign ACM student chapter is
pleased to announce the 11th Annual Reflections | Projections Student
Computing Conference, to be held on the weekend of October 7-9, 2005.
This year we are excited to announce many speakers from both academia
and industry, including Dr. Peter Hofstee, chief architect of the Cell
processor at IBM--the heart of the upcoming Sony PlayStation 3.

While we are still in the process of finalizing this year's speakers,
the most up-to-date information can be found on our website at

In addition to speakers, this year's conference will host the 10th
Annual Reflections | Projections Job Fair on Friday, October 7, prior
to the beginning of other conference events.  Online resume submission
is available to all registered conference attendees.

Finally, this year's conference features the annual Mechmania AI
programming competition.  Each team's AI is pitted against others in
tournament competition following the 18-hour development session.
Mechmania is sure to test the mettle of even the most seasoned
programmers.  Registration will be available shortly on the conference

Registration for Reflections | Projections is $20, due at conference
check-in.  To register, please visit our registration website at

We hope to see you this year at Reflections | Projections!

I'm already registered.  I went to the conference last year, it was a lot of fun.  It probably would've been even more fun had I not participated in the AI competition (Mechmania) and gone to see all the good speakers they had lined up instead.

It's pretty cheap to go, the food is free, and they give out free t-shirts and other swag.  Also, if you do compete in Mechmania, you get yet another free t-shirt, AND free sugary/salty junk food and caffeine (all you can eat).  Not to mention that the participants get to eat first when meal time comes around.

It's definitely worth the trip.

Wow, this looks like a blast!  I'm particularly interested in the talks on quantum computing and the Cell processor.  And like Bryan, I've got plenty of friends up there, and thus have places to stay!  Count me in! :-D

I would love to go but I am using all my paid time off at work because of a wedding I am in. This wedding is just making me madder and madder. To those who go hope it is great and tell me all about it PLEASE!!

I'm interested in going if I have enough money at that time.  I'll keep you posted.
