ALAN TURING AWARDS

The Museo de Informática and the Escola Tècnica Superior d’Enginyeria Informàtica (ETSINF) have the pleasure to invite you to come and see the Turing Awards (ACM Turing Award) exposition situated at the ground floor of building 1G.
The exposition aims to give visibility to the big minds of computer engineering together with other activities proposed by the Museum and the ETSINF. To this end twenty awarded people have been selected and are exposed in different posters with the field where they stood out and the reason why they were awarded by ACM.
Among others, in the exposition we can find out investigators and professionals like C. Antony R. Hoare, Edsger Dijkstra or Barbara Liskov  selected because of their contributions to the definition and design of programming languages.
The Museo de Informática team has worked in the design of this exposition. It will be placed in the boards at the ground floor of building 1G..
Go and visit it and tell us who will you add to the expo. If you share any image in social networks, tag it with #TuringUPV and we will share it!
