TCAC Manchester Subcommittee

Manchester was uniquely important to Alan Turing's life and work. Dramatic events, both in early computer development, and in Turing's personal life, marked his years living there. And new directions in his research, particularly his seminal work on morphogenesis, were tragically cut short at his house in Wilmslow on June 7th, 1954. There are still a number of people living in Manchester who have close links to Turing, in at least one case through joint research work.

The TCAC Manchester Subcommittee has been formed to coordinate and link the diverse activities already planned for the region in 2012. Manchester today provides a vibrantly rich context for the Turing Centenary celebrations. This is reflected in the pro-active involvement of the City's council, museums and university, and in the broad composition of the group:
