Details of the 2020 Andrew and Kathleen Booth Lecture will be announced here in due course.
Up to 2016, the Andrew Booth Memorial Lecture commemorated Professor Andrew Booth's work in creating some of the world's first electronic computers at Birkbeck. From 2017, the annual Andrew & Kathleen Booth Lecture honours also Dr Kathleen Booth's work on designing and programming these early computers. For more details of their work, please see the Short History of computing at Birkbeck. The Booth lecture is given annually by a distinguished computer scientist.
