Subject: REVISED: Computing in the academy

Dear Colleagues:

The following is a revised programme for the one-day colloquium, Computing
in the academy, which takes place this Wednesday, 6 May, at King's College
London. Unfortunately one of our speakers, Professor Stanley Katz, was
forced by circumstances beyond his control to cancel his appearance, but we
have been fortunate to get Sir Charles Chadwyck-Healey in his stead, and so
extend the scope of discussion to include a well-informed external view of
the role of computing in the academy. Note as well that the order of
speakers has changed, again due to an irresistible and unforseen change.

Please circulate this message to anyone whom you might think to be interested.
