On Wednesday 15 February we’re hosting a special event to remember Dr Alexander ‘Sandy’ Fraser (, who died last June. Friends and former colleagues of his will be celebrating the legacy of a computer science pioneer whose work was fundamental to the development of the internet we use today.

Sandy was an alumnus of this Department, completing his PhD here in 1969. He then moved on to AT&T Bell Labs and is perhaps best known as a pioneer of Virtual Circuit technologies – the kind of networks that would later be known as ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) – in which field he won many awards.

The memorial event takes place in the Department on 15 February, 16:00–18:00. There will be a series of short talks on aspects of Sandy’s life and work, followed by refreshments. Please see full details here ( For catering purposes, please register in advance if you would like to attend.

A recording of the seminar will be taken for the family.
