A LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES AT YAHOO

Thursday, October 28, 1999 - 17:00
Santa Barbara, CA

Udi Manber, chief scientist of Yahoo!, will present a colloquium on Nov. 10 at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

A part of the UCSB Distinguished Lecture Series in Computer Science, the free presentation will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the Engineering II Pavilion on campus. Space is limited and seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Millions of people go everyday to web portals such as Yahoo! as starting points and increasingly, as destinations of their web activities. What started as a simple navigation aid has grown into a vast array of services and tools with a very complex infrastructure.

Manber will describe some of the technology that goes into providing these services at Yahoo! and the problems that need to be solved to provide better services in the future.

A computer science professor, Manber is currently on a leave of absence from the University of Arizona. His research interests include World Wide Web applications, especially search and resource discovery tools, software tools, computer networks, computer security and design of algorithms.

He has written more than 50 technical articles and a best-selling book, "Introduction to Algorithms -- A Creative Approach," and has edited three other books. His honors include three Best Paper awards, a teaching award and a 1985 Presidential Young Investigator Award.

Manber has consulted for IBM, Microsoft, Lucent Technologies, Navio Communications, FTP Software, and New Times Newspapers. Additionally, he holds a few patents.
