Northeastern University is hosting a special Symposium in celebration  
of Dr. Mitchell Wand's 60th birthday and honoring his pioneering work  
in the field of programming languages. For over 30 years Mitch has  
made important contributions to many areas of programming languages,  
including semantics, continuations, type theory, hygienic macros,  
compiler correctness, static analysis and formal verification.

Please join us at Northeastern on August 23rd and 24th as we celebrate  
this personal milestone and pay tribute to a great computer scientist,  
researcher, teacher and colleague, Dr. Mitchell (Mitch) Wand.
