Beginning at 10 a.m., faculty, staff and alumni will process in full academic regalia into the auditorium, and Chancellor Robert M. Berdahl will give a welcome. In addition to the keynote address, there will be a multi-media slide show honoring UC Berkeley's Nobel Prize tradition.

The Elise and Walter A. Haas International Award also will be presented, as will the Peter E. Haas Public Service Award.
