ATLAS@50 Anniversary Event

Scientific Computing: Past, Present and Future

Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

13 November 2014

STFC is pleased to invite you to a celebration to mark 50 years since the Harwell ATLAS computer was set up at the RAL site.

There will be an afternoon of talks on the past, present and future of scientific computing and a reception with an exhibition of some historical computer hardware.   This event will illustrate some of the computing innovations at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, and enable visitors to explore its history as well as its current work supporting world-class science. We are particularly excited that, in its 50th anniversary year, we are able to display the console from the original Atlas computer, together with memorabilia of the time.

The event will run from 13:00 to 18:00hrs.  If you would like to attend, please register by 6 November at:
