JICSLP'98 will coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the World's First Stored-Program Computer, nicknamed the Baby, that was built in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manchester in 1948.
Here's a BBC news item about the Baby.
All JICSLP'98 participants will be invited to the Baby's Official Birthday Party at Bridgewater Hall, Manchester's international concert hall.There will also be a promenade concert given by the Halle Orchestra. JICSLP'98 participants will be able to purchase tickets for this concert at a special reduced price.
The world's first computer program was run on 21 June 1948 on the "baby" Mark1 at the University of Manchester. As part of the celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of this event next year, there will be a competition to program the machine. The winner will have the opportunity to run their program on the replica of the original machine.
Details of your chance to program the World's First Computer can be found here.
Please forward this information to anybody you know who might be interested, i.e. anybody you know with an interest in computing!
