The focus of the celebrations is the
Bridgewater Hall, Manchester in the afternoon on the 17th of June 1998,
when a re-built Baby will be switched on.
Golden Anniversary Conference
is being held June 17-19, focusing on
the computing achievements of the
University of Manchester and examining current research in the
Department of Computer Science and future developments from academic and
Details of the overall celebrations

Nick Higham and David Silvester of the
Manchester Centre for Computational Mathematics
are organizing a meeting
to precede the above events.
It runs from 9am on Tuesday 16th June to 2pm on
Wednesday 17th June. The aim of the meeting is to describe how
numerical analysis has been influenced by the development of computers
over the last fifty years. The meeting will comprise invited talks
covering key areas including numerical linear algebra, optimisation,
ODEs, PDEs and computational fluid dynamics, and will contain historical
remarks, perspectives and anecdotes. The influence of
high-performance computing on the future of numerical analysis will
also be assessed. A dinner will be held on the Tuesday evening.
