Claude Boksenbaum

Nous avons appris le décès de Claude Boksenbaum.

Un hommage lui est rendu ici
C'est lui qui a organisé la deuxième conférence internationale B à Montpellier.
Les t-shirts que nous portons "Let it B !" c'est lui qui en avait eu l'idée.

J'ai connu Claude Boksenbaum lors d'une école d'automne de l'Afcet qu'il avait organisée. Je me souviens de son doux sourire, de son humour tendre.

Il avait fait un CD d'interviews de grands informaticiens. ... et je pense que c'est lui qui m'a conduit une fois en retraite à m'inscrire comme étudiant en master d'histoire des sciences au Centre François Viète de Nantes pour faire un mémoire sur l'histoire des méthodes de développement des logiciels.

Un hommage à Claude Boksenbaum (daily motion)

Bonjour des organisateurs


Let it B !

Rendez-vous en juin 2009 ...peut-être !

Wifi

Dear colleague,

You will find in the conference room (room D):
- a videoprojector -
and
- a computer

A good idea : your presentation in a PDF file.

For wifi in the Cité des Congrès, it will be possible to pay a connexion to Orange for one hour or more.

In the IUT of Nantes (near the cathedral), wifi will be free.

You will have special account. You can use public transportation (but walking is very convenient) :

- Cité des Congrès : Busway line 4,
stop Place Foch (the population of Nantes call this place : Place Louis XVI)
and then
you have 5 minutes walk
or bus 21 (Direction Peray) or
bus 23 (direction Peray or Haluchère), stop Chanzy.

Don't forget your City Pass !

Best Regards

Henri Habrias
