Celebration to Honor Millie Dresselhaus

Millie Dresselhaus will celebrate her 80th Birthday this year. To celebrate her extraordinary accomplishments and everything she has done (and still does!) for science and for all of us, we are organizing a symposium and birthday party in her honor on Saturday, December 4th, 2010.  It would be great if you could join us at MIT for an all-day symposium beginning at 9:30 am (gathering/refreshments at 8:45am) in Room 32-123.  (See the symposium link above for the full program and list of speakers).

At 5:30 pm we will move to the Boston Marriott Cambridge to continue our celebration until 8:30 pm with food and reveling (see birthday celebration link above for more information).

It is imperative that we get accurate head-counts for these events. We need you to click on the RSVP link and tell us which portion(s) of the event you plan to attend. 

Please RSVP by November 15, 2010.

Also, don't forget to leave a birthday wish for Millie!
