The Algorithms, Radio, and Coding Workshop will be held in La Jolla, CA on January 31, 2015 and February 1st, 2015.

Registration is now closed. Please contact the organizers for late changes.

We are also asking people (whether or not they can attend) to consider submitting quotes and/or photos to include in a slideshow. For example, “Robert, your mentorship helped me to X. Thanks for taking the time to Y.” or “I remember chatting with Robert at X. Our conversation about Y changed the way I thought about Z.” Please send these to Rebecca Willett ( by January 30th, 2015.
