Past Seminar Organizers (and helpers)

GCS History

Here is a brief history of the seminar, as relayed by Tom Robinson:

I think Stephen Hartke began it... His advisor was Fred Roberts, and as far as I know DIMACS always provided the funding. After Stephen, I think Nick Weininger took over and then Bill Cuckler and then Paul Raff and then me (with Mike Neimann's help) then Beth and now [Kellen]. Subway sandwiches have been the most usual food, but there've been lots of exceptions by now.

Here is another account, as relayed by Paul Raff:

To my recollection, Bill Cuckler ... he's at the NSA now ... organized it before me and Phil did, and Nick did before Bill ... I think the GCS is just a natural consequence of the awesomeness of the discrete math program at Rutgers.
