SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – February 12, 2009 – To honor the legacy of Charles Darwin on the eve of his 200th birthday, Citrix Online, a division of Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS) joins other corporate sponsors, and thousands of volunteers working behind the scenes, to assemble a massive tribute to the scientist who rocked the world with his theory on evolution and natural selection. The celebration will be in the form of a Web conference at which prominent scientists from leading universities, including Harvard, MIT, and Stanford will share their thoughts about Darwin’s legacy. Included will be the University of Wisconsin’s Professor Sean Carroll, who authored The Making of The Fittest: DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution and also Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jonathan Weiner.
