On Friday Nov. 10 a symposium was held in tribute to our late YITP colleague, Jack Smith, organized by some of his friends at Stony Brook and long time colleagues from Europe. Jack’s work in applications of quantum field theory to high energy collisions played a key role in establishing of the Standard Model. Speakers gave their own recollections while recalling landmarks of Jack’s scientific career in historical context. Jack's family was also represented. It should be very interesting for the physics, and for the chance to appreciate a life in physics.

The symposium was held at the Simons Center, Room 102. It began at 9am, continue (with a coffee break) until about noon. An afternoon session at the Center lasted from 2 to approximately 3:30pm. Of course, the sessions were open to all.
