31st Annual Llewellyn G. Hoxton Lecture

Intel's Justin Rattner To Speak On Electronics In Internet Age

April 18, 2001--

WHO: Justin Rattner, Intel Corp. fellow and director of Intel's microprocessor research lab

WHAT: 31st annual Llewellyn G. Hoxton Public Lecture, "Electronics in the Internet Age"

WHEN: Thursday, April 26, 7:30 p.m.

WHERE: Chemistry building auditorium, University of Virginia, Charlottesville

Rattner has been featured as "Person of the Week" by ABC World News Tonight for his visionary work on the first computer to achieve sustained performance of one trillion scientific calculations per second. In 1989, R&D Magazine named him scientist of the year.

He will speak on revolutionary changes in the electronics industry that have produced major advances in computers and communications. He also will discuss the coming shift from microelectronics to nano-electronics -- the shrinking of transistors to dimensions measured by the width of an atom -- and how future technologies will change society, politics and industry.

The Llewellyn G. Hoxton lecture honors the late professor who chaired the University of Virginia physics department from 1907 to 1948. Throughout those years, Hoxton made it a priority to convey to students the excitement of new developments in physics. The physics department inaugurated the Hoxton lectures in 1971 to spotlight interesting and provocative viewpoints of physicists on topics of public interest.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Parking is available behind the chemistry and physics buildings and in the football stadium lots.
