Free to all students and all members of LivMS. Others pay a door charge of 4.

Car Parking: There is a multi-storey car park very close to the Redmonds Building. See web-link:

The traffic entrance to this car park is near the bottom of Mount Pleasant. The car park closes at 8pm

New ways of computing, not based on the further micro-miniaturisation of silicon circuits, are emerging as practical realities. The arrival of quantum computing is now a practical consideration for large companies and national and international bodies; and looking a little further ahead, data storage and processing based on the biological properties of DNA have been demonstrated in the laboratory.

Quantum computing is the new buzzword -- Richard Pinch has been looking into what computers will look like after quantum tech arrives and what newer ideas are still on the drawing board. Mathematics -- old, new and as yet unknown -- will be the key to developing and exploiting these new technologies.
