This year's conference is dedicated to the work of Nathaniel Rochester and J. Presper Eckert on the Centenary of their birth.

Nathaniel Rochester

   J. Presper Eckert

   Nathaniel Rochester, a computer pioneer, designed the IBM 701, wrote the first assembler, and participated in the founding of artificial intelligence by simulating neural networks and by helping arrange the 1956 Dartmouth Conference, widely considered to be the "birth of artificial intelligence."

J. Presper Eckert, also a computer pioneer, designed the first general-purpose electronic digital computer (ENIAC) and then designed the first commercial computer (UNIVAC) which incorporated his invention of the mercury delay line memory.
