The Riding the Digital Wave Summit:
Celebrating the birth of Computer Science in Australia
The Refectory, The University of Sydney (see Map and Directions)
Thursday 24 February 2022; 9:00am – 1:00pm AEDT (followed by lunch)
The Pearcey Foundation invites you to participate in a national landmark event celebrating the 70th anniversary of the first computer conference held in Australia! The Riding the Digital Wave Summit will take us back to the birth of computer science as a discipline and profession in its own right, looking at some of the early developments and where they have led us today. How has digital technology optimised our futures? Delivered Government services? Increased our productivity?
Join us at the Summit as we explore past, present and future themes around human computer interaction; the impact of automation on jobs and industry and how Australia can continue to ride the digital wave to ensure our future resilience.
This Summit will be a fully vaccinated space for the safety and comfort of all involved. It is also strongly encouraged to complete a rapid antigen test prior to attending for shared peace of mind.
