James L. Flanagan Commemoration Session - 8 June 2016, Rutgers University

James L. Flanagan Commemoration Session
Rutgers University, June 8, 2016, 1-4 PM

JAMES L. FLANAGAN was a pioneer in the field of acoustics and speech processing. His legendary career was marked by a remarkable productivity of the highest technical and intellectual caliber. A visionary, well ahead of his time, he led the world into the present era of digital speech communications, machine learning and human-to-computer interaction. Voice mail, speech recognition, the artificial larynx, packet-switched voice, are some of the applications that were enabled by the pioneering research of James L. Flanagan.

A Commemoration Session honoring James L. Flanagan will be held from 1 – 4 PM on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, at the CAIP Auditorium, in the CoRE Building, Rutgers University, 96 Frelinghuysen Road, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ 08854-8008. Many of his former colleagues from AT&T Bell Labs, Rutgers, and elsewhere across the technical community will reflect on his contributions and influence on their technical fields, as well as on their own personal research.

We anticipate that seating will be limited for this Commemoration Service so we ask you to register by sending email to Rich Cox (r.v.cox@ieee.org). Please also let us know if you will be accompanied by anyone.
