Should be 'Johns Hopkins' rather than 'John Hopkins'.
Worth noting: this will be held a the JHU Applied Physics Laboratory -- a separate facility that does a mix of classified and unclassified work -- rather than on the University campus.
Now Tony Sale is sadly nolonger with us, I wonder who will be doing the talk on Bletchly.
@Clive - the way the US is going it will probably be a General Von Klinkerhofen on the illegal activities of Bletchley and the need for stronger laws on people who misuse computers to crack security systems
Budget permitting,they could send Tony Blair. He's making a mint in the lecture circuit nowadays, mostly talking about stuff he knows nothing or is totally deluded about, in the process stirring up the audience as to make sure nobody falls asleep.
The contents for the Cryptologic History Symposia always look interesting. Do they ever get written up and published, or is this an only in person event? I couldn't see anything about publication of the proceedings in the Cryptologia announcement or on the NSA site.
Looks like it is $70 per day. I'm thinking of attending. Might anyone else from here be there?
I wonder who will be doing the talk on Bletchly.
He is somewhat passionate about the Engima machines, and he's on the agenda. It's how Silver, apparently, "turned him on" to cryptography while at Minskey's AI lab.
