I thought Manchester was a 'Nuclear free city' New Zealand seems to enforce its Nuclear free stance more.

For the Retro computer nerds out there, the Replay Expo has is moving from Blackpool to Event City this year. 13/14 October.

I'm a sucker for nostalgia and I loved the Urbis Video game Nation exhibition, so I'll probably go to this.

Alan Turing honoured at 'biggest ever' computer conference

Tuesday 01 May 2012

Speakers from around the world will come to Manchester in June to honour the father of modern computing, Alan Turing.

The University of Manchester is calling the Alan Turing Centenary Conference, the “biggest ever” computer conference and it will be held at the University and Manchester Town Hall.

Among the speakers are Google senior vice-president, Dr Vint Cerf; chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov; 10 Turing award winners; famous physicists Sir Roger Penrose and George Ellis, and Dr David Ferrucci, the head of the Watson project at IBM.

They will be discussing how Turing’s thinking has endured in the digital age and what the future holds for computers and computer science. Two public lectures will look at the extent of Turing’s legacy.

TuringTuring joined the University in 1948, the same year that the Baby (the world’s first computer with memory stored programs) was built by Tom Kilburn and Freddie Williams.

While many will know Turing through his code-breaking work during the Second World War, he is thought by many to be the father of the modern computer and one of the pioneers of artificial intelligence, computation theory and computer games.

Time magazine listed him among the 20th century’s 100 greatest minds.

“Alan Turing left us with a remarkably inviting, essential and universally stimulating challenge – can computers exhibit a thinking and communicating behaviour so similar to ours that it would be ostensibly indistinguishable? The challenge turns out to be harder than anyone ever imagined,” said Dr Ferrucci.

The conference will feature a computer chess event, a poster session, and a competition of computer programmes proving theorems.

The 2 x 90 minute public lectures will take place on Friday 22nd June and Monday 25th June. The first is being delivered by Turing biographer, Jack Copeland called “Alan Turing: Pioneer of the Information Age” and it will be held at University Place at The University of Manchester at 6.30pm.

The second, ‘The Problem of Modelling the Mathematical Mind’ by physicist Sir Roger Penrose, is on Monday 25th June at 8pm at Manchester Town Hall.

“If you search the Web for terms morphogenesis, Turing test and Turing machine, you will see why Alan Turing is arguably the most famous computer scientist of all time,” explained
conference organiser Professor Andrei Voronkov.

“To celebrate his centenary and his work at The University of Manchester we decided to organise a conference to remember, aimed at pushing forward our understanding of the most fundamental and important issues in the information science and artificial intelligence, including the nature of human mind, the possibilities and limits of artificial intelligence, and the role and the nature of mathematics in them.

“The result is a set of speakers unmatched in the history of computing.”

Free tickets can be booked here, by following the "Easy Chair" link and registering for "public lectures only (free)." http://www.how-do.co.uk/north-west-m...20501100957168

Manchester moves up conference rankings

23rd May 2012

MANCHESTER has strengthened its reputation as an international conference venue, with the city moving up seven places in the International Congress and Convention Association’s (ICCA) annual report.

The city moved up to 79th position in a table of 200 international destinations and maintained its fourth place spot in the UK after holding 26 ICCA-approved events in 2011. These included the International Chromosome Conference at University of Manchester, 14th European Microwave Conference at Manchester Central and International Symposium on Dynamics of Vehicles on Roads & Tracks at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Each city that features in the report must comply with specific conditions, which state that meetings must be held on a regular basis, regularly rotate between at least three countries and that each meeting must attract a minimum of 50 delegates.

Visit Manchester's managing director Paul Simpson said: “Whilst a jump from 86th to 79th position may not look like much on paper, given the criteria that must be met in order to submit entries, a 24% increase in qualifying meetings is fantastic for the city and testament to the incredible conference facilities we have on offer.

“There have been major developments in Greater Manchester’s conference product over recent years, in terms of developing the infrastructure and support services that organisers expect of a first-rate conference destination and we’re confident that we can continue to improve in the ICCA rankings over the coming years.”

Graduate jobseekers flock to Manchester

06 Jun 2012

The UK’S biggest jobs fair will be organised by The University of Manchester next week as hundreds of graduates seek their first step on the career ladder.

This annual Graduate Recruitment Fair on June 13 & 14 at the Armitage Centre in Fallowfield welcomes more exhibitors over the two days than any other in the UK, and is free to attend for any new or recent graduate from any university.

Representatives from 170 companies and several higher education institutions are participating, with different exhibitors on each day. Graduates will get the opportunity to find out about permanent paid jobs (and a few voluntary positions) in a variety of sectors locally, nationally and internationally, as well as postgraduate study opportunities starting autumn 2012.

Exhibitors include recruiters such as Abercrombie and Fitch, Aldi Stores Ltd, ASDA, Baker Hughes, BASF, BetFred, Bloomberg, Bluesmith Information Systems, The Co-operative Group, Danone, Deloitte, EA Technology, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Google, Hilti, IBM, Living Room Letting Agency, Majestic Wine Warehouses Ltd, Morson, Northern Power Grid, Raleigh International, RLC Engineering, Schlumberger, Teach First, Thales, University of Sheffield, The University of Manchester, Utopia Technology, Web Applications, and 150 more! A full list of exhibitors for each day and their vacancies is on the website: www.manchester.ac.uk/graduatefair . The Fair is an ideal chance for graduates to make a positive impression on several potential employers at once.

Jan Hewitt, Employer Liaison Manager at the University said: “We do advise graduates to dress smartly and bring copies of their CV. It's also a good idea to research companies and their vacancies beforehand - you will make a better impression if companies feel you have done your homework – you can check out the vacancies for each company on the list of exhibitors for each day on the Fair website.”

A team of professional careers consultants will be on hand to offer advice, and there are short, informative talks on interview techniques, CVs, application forms and succeeding at assessment centres.

The Fair runs from 10.30am to 4pm each day at the Armitage Centre in Fallowfield. Visit the Graduate Recruitment Fair website for further information and a full list of exhibitors, at www.manchester.ac.uk/graduatefair, or call 0161 275 2828

There is a major co-operative conference taking place in Manchester at the end of next month at Manchester Central. Several thousand international delegates will be coming to the City for ICAExpo and a couple of conferences that have been brought together in one week in one city.

The birth of the co-operative movement and the growth of The Co-operative Group are major achievements that have international significance - for which Rochdale and Manchester still receive global recognition from co-operators.

This event is also open to the public and as co-operatives are dominated by food and drink businesses it may be a great opportunity for Mancunians to sample some global fare - I certainly hope so.

The Rochdale Pioneers Museum also re-opens next month and the film referred to above is about the Rochdale Pioneers with that bloke out of Early Doors in the lead role.
