Yes Bob is mostly known in IEEE circles and a veteran of Bell Labs and Bellcore.  His main claim to fame was adaptive equalization which essentially enabled telephone line modems to handle 9600 baud (a fourfold advancement in performance at the time).  He would be a good speaker to look back at the evolution of IT (he authored the "Reflections" column for IEEE Spectrum for many years, see http://www.boblucky.com/spectrum.htm ) 

He's been around the industry a very long time and would probably be able to reflect on the evolution of computing and information technology (and the future).   And he still lives in the area.
