In Memoriam: Paul Dirksen

Paul Dirksen, a pioneer computer scientist at the University of Waterloo, passed away on April 8, 2023. He was 83. Paul was a vital part of UW computing history. He was one of the developers of the WATFOR and WATFIV compilers for the IBM 360 mainframe system in the late 1960s. While a previous team had developed an earlier WATFOR for the IBM 7040, the 360 became the foundation architecture for several generations of IBM mainframes.

Diana Skrzydlo is one of four recipients of this year’s Distinguished Teacher Award from the Centre for Teaching Excellence. Skrzydlo is the Director of the MActSc program, a Continuing Lecturer for the department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, and the Math Teaching Fellow.
