It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our cherished friend and colleague Emeritus Prof. Clarence "Skip" Ellis. Skip was one of the earliest founding members of our department, arriving in Boulder as an assistant professor in 1972. Skip left CU in 1975 to begin a long and productive career in academia and industry, including MIT, Stanford, and Xerox PARC, where he was part of the storied group of researchers who created the modern GUI interface.
The Correll Lab is currently working on a robotics project called Droplets. The Droplets are an experimental platform for large-scale swarming research. Using the new CU-Boulder Crowdfunding Initiative, they hope to gain support for continuing their reserach. For more information and to support their research please visit http://bit.ly/1n6ymi7.
For generations, countless parents have read the classic children’s book Goodnight Moon to help lull little ones to sleep. The poetic text follows a young rabbit as he softly wishes goodnight to his surroundings — “goodnight room, goodnight moon, goodnight cow jumping over the moon,” the story goes.
