ACM Turing Lecture Tickets

Here's some more information about the Turing Lecture, which Kurt
mentioned in his email last night.  Note that the times given in this
email are different from those on the official website.  The website
has things ending at 7:30, not 8:30.

Irvine Auditorium is the odd-looking octogonal building on the corner
of 34th and Spruce Streets on Penn's Campus.  Wynn Commons isn't
easily visible from the street, but if you just walk around Irvine you
can't miss it.
