The Kyoto Prize is an award to recognize lifelong accomplishments and achievements of individuals and groups from around the world for their work towards bettering how we live. To celebrate the award recipients there is a three day symposium with multiple esteemed lecturers and current/past winners at multiple locations around San Diego. This upcoming San Diego Kyoto Symposium is holding a portion of the weekend at the SDSU Alumni Center on March 13th from 10:00am-11:30am. They will be acknowledging Dr. Ivan Sutherland for his work on graphic interfaces. He is known for developing sketchpad which later led the way to things such as smartphones and 3-D modeling. This event is free and open to anyone who would like to attend; you just simply have to register individually or as a group. Other schools that will be hosting Kyoto Symposium events include University of San Diego, University of California San Diego, and Point Loma Nazarene.
