Oral Interviews

In an interview, which took place at the 1986 Fall Joint Computer Conference in Dallas, Texas, John
Hopcrofl and Robert Tarjan discuss their collaboration and its influence on their separate research today. They also comment on supercomputing and parallelism, particularly with regard to statements by FJCC Keynote speakers Kenneth Wilson, Nobel laureate and director of Cornell University's Supercomputer Center, and C Gordon Bell, chief architect on the team that designed DEC's VAX (and then with the National Science Foundation). Finally the Turing Award winners air their views on the direction of computer science as a whole and on funding and the Strategic Defense Initiative.

A transcript of that interview is available here.
