Society: Overview

One of the main reasons for the Atlas Computer Laboratory's existence was the lack of computing power available to the university community. This coupled with the need by both Harwell and the Rutherford Laboratory for additional power led to the proposal to establish the Atlas Computer Laboratory at Chilton.

This section aims to give an assessment of the Laboratory's impact on the UK academic scene and the impact of the university sector, government policy and the UK computing industry on the Atlas Computer Laboratory.
