Alan Turing Meeting, Friday 6th June 2014

Background to the Conference

Alan Turing (1912-1954) spent the last six years of his working life in Manchester. A one-day conference is being organised on the 60th anniversary of his death. This conference will be broad in scope and is intended to facilitate collaboration between numerical analysts, computer scientists and engineers. There will be talks on the mathematics underlying computation, both on theoretical aspects (Numerical Analysis) and practical aspects (Scientifi c Computing), and a public lecture in Turing's honour.



The conference will take place in the School of Mathematics, Alan Turing Building, at The University of Manchester.
