Come and join us at Dyalog 16 / BAA Celebration

The BAA is offering its members sponsorship to attend Dyalog 16 in Glasgow on 12th - 13th October 2016.

BAA Celebration Event

12th – 13th October 2016 at the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, Glasgow

27th November will be the anniversary of CleanSpace that this year marks the 50th birthday of interactive APL. To celebrate this event, we are going to be working with Dyalog in the UK to make Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th October a celebration of all things APL. These dates form part of the Dyalog User Meeting being held in Glasgow from the 9th to 13th October.

The celebration is not aimed at just Dyalog APL; all vendors and developers from all flavours of APL or Array Languages are warmly invited to attend or take part. Come along and share two days with us looking at the high achievements over these past 50 years.

Of course we will have some new things to show you too.

The content of this event is still being built but we are confident of an exciting and stimulating series of talks and demonstrations – watch this space. If you have something to say about our history or the direction of our future, then please contact with details and we might be able to include you into the proceedings as well.

Registration to this event must be done via the Dyalog website where full details and information can be found.

To assist those who would like to go to the Celebration Event the BAA are offering up to 10 grants to members. These grants are worth amounts between £50-£500. The application process is simple and requires just the form below to be filled in and submitted for consideration. Any grants that are awarded will be paid into the applicant’s bank account once evidence is provided that they are booked and have paid to attend.

Students may request that their submission is expedited through the system to recover costs more quickly.

Anyone who is not a member of the BAA but meets all other criteria may apply for a grant but will need to become a member before any grant is issue to them.
