60th Anniversary of Computing at Glasgow

60th Anniversary of Computing at Glasgow

In 1957, the University of Glasgow became the first University in Scotland to have an electronic computer. To mark the 60th Anniversary of this momentous occasion the School of Computing Science is inviting our alumni, students, staff, and industry partners to campus to celebrate.

Please join us on 17th June, for an afternoon of talks and discussion, followed by a celebratory gala dinner in the evening. Keynote speakers include Prof Steve Furber, University of Manchester (“From ARMs to Brains”), and Prof Ursula Martin, University of Oxford (“Ada Lovelace: the programmer, the maths, and the fake news”), with talks about the history of computing in Glasgow from our own Dr Jeremy Singer, plus alumni and current staff.
