David Hemmendinger, associate professor of
computer science, has authored two articles commissioned by the
Encyclopedia Britannica. “Programming Languages” was accepted
last year. “Computers,” a long survey article, was accepted
recently. Both are to appear in both the online and printed versions of
the encyclopedia. Also, he recently organized a discussion of
the history of computer software at the annual ACM conference
on computer science education.
