There are two epochs in the history of computing: before the completion of the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (known as the ENIAC), and after. While there are several controversies about the development of the ENIAC and its immediate successors, there is nearly universal agreement on three points: the ENIAC was the watershed project which convinced the world that electronic computing was not merely possible, but practicable; it was a masterpiece of electrical engineeri...

The Gordon Research Conferences have been in operation since 1947 as a non-profit organization that arranges and administers scientific conferences. The conferences are named in honor of Neil E. Gordon whose idea they were. Gordon himself held "forerunner" conferences both at Johns Hopkins University (where he was then teaching) and on Gibson Island, a private resort island in the Chesapeake Bay. This later series of conferences was held under the aegisis of the American Association for the Adva...
