WTC '95, Harrogate

4-6 September 1995

When the Transputer Initiative completed, The Transputer Consortium (TTC) was set up with Mike Jane as Coordinator. It organised WTC '95 with strong support from Informatics staff. This article appeared in ECN 55.

The Transputer Consortium (TTC) is pleased to announce that the World Transputer Congress 1995 (WTC '95) will be held on 4-6 September 1995 at the Harrogate International Centre, North Yorkshire, England. WTC '95 is the leading international transputer conference and exhibition and is the third in a series sponsored by and run under the overall management of TTC.

WTC '95 is also sponsored by the Commission of European Union.


The Conference will be held over 3 days, 4-6 September. The format will be similar to that in previous years with both Plenary and Parallel Sessions. Confirmed speakers include Rosalie Zobel (European Commission), Eugen Schenfield (NEC Research Institute, US), Mike Delves (NA Software, UK) and John Elliot (Smith System Engineering Ltd, UK). Submitted papers, accepted following the refereeing process, will be presented in Parallel Sessions.


An associated exhibition attracting the world's leading suppliers of transputer-based and other relevant hardware, software and application products will be held in the Exhibition Hall. Opportunities also exist for posters and demonstrations of academic achievements.

Tutorials and Workshops

The tutorials will be held on 2-3 September 1995 in the Royal Baths Assembly Rooms and will cover the fundamental principles underlying transputer technologies, the design paradigms for exploiting them, and workshops that will focus directly on a range of specialist themes (eg real time issues and image processing).

Social Programme

There will be a Welcome Reception on Sunday 3 September. The Conference Banquet will be held on Monday 4 September, with the Exhibitors' Reception held on Tuesday, both based on a Yorkshire theme.
