To mark the centenary of the birth of Alan Turing, The National Museum of Computing (TNMOC) is hosting an open meeting Turing and his Times on 26 April 2012 at 5pm at Bletchley Park, where Turing worked as a codebreaker during World War II. The TNMOC event is the second of three Turing-themed events linking three of the top computing museums in the world.
Turing and his Times will feature a talk by computer historian Prof Simon Lavington on Turing and his Contemporaries, a simulation of the Pilot ACE computer by TNMOC trustee Kevin Murrell, and the first formal public showing of a video commissioned by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) of the recollections of two of Turing's colleagues. The event will be chaired by highly respected journalist, commentator and technology critic, Bill Thompson.
A ticket will include entry to TNMOC from 1pm on the afternoon the event (but not to the Bletchley Park Trust Turing Display).
The event itself will be in the Bletchley Park Mansion from 5pm - 6.30pm and followed by networking in the bar area.
