Bletchley Park: Codebreaking Conference

Bletchley ParkMany of our customers will recognise Bletchley Park as a venue we have used for our annual conferences in previous years. For those of you that are interested on Saturday 12 November 2011 there is a code-breaking, cryptography and programming Conference being held at Bletchley Park with all proceeds to the Bletchley Park Trust and The National Museum of Computing.

The Bletchley Park Trust is delighted to announce that the keynote speaker for the Annual ACCU Conference 2011 will be prestigious 2006 Turing Award winner, Dr Frances Allen. Dr Allen will be giving away the secrets behind the code-breaking language and system she developed for the National Security Agency in the 1950's and 1960's.

Amongst the other distinguished speakers is world-renowned cryptography expert, Professor Fred Piper who will be discussing how cryptography has changed since 1945. Eminent computing veteran and Bletchley Park authority Dr Brian Oakley will be talking about language, code-breaking and Turing's algorithmic approach to it. Dr David Hartley, distinguished computer scientist, has a talk entitled "CPL - The Great Grandfather of C".

Last year's speakers were Bruce Schneier, Whitfield Diffie, Andy Clark and David Kahn and raised badly-needed funds for the Bletchley Park Trust and The National Museum of Computing.
