      UL — The University of Louisiana commemorates the 50th anniversary of its computer science program Friday and Saturday with its Louisiana Computing Carnival 2009.

    All computer science and Center for Advanced Computer Studies alumni and supporters are invited to attend.

    Events include the rededication of the university’s computer science building, a banquet on Friday and workshops scheduled Saturday.

    At 1:30 p.m. Friday, a rededication ceremony will be held to rename the computer science building after James Oliver, the late professor who founded UL’s computer science program. The building is at 301 E. Lewis St. across from Girard Park.

    “Fifty years ago, UL offered the first course in computer science. Not many universities had even heard about this new invention,” Magdy Bayoumi, director of CACS and department head for computer science, said in a news release.

    “From there, UL developed an excellent computer science program, highly regarded all over the world.”
