Kim Bruce

Over a career spanning six decades, Kim has had an amazing impact as a researcher, educator, and community builder. We are planning a one-day workshop at Pomona College on Friday, January 13th, 2023, just before POPL. The workshop will feature contributed talks on topics related to Kim’s interests (object-oriented programming, natural language semantics, pedagogy). We hope you will join us to celebrate Kim’s career
