on Thursday, 19 April 2012 at 7.30 p.m.

"In 2010, at the international APL Conference in Berlin, it was surprising to see how much new work is being done by the APL vendors. APL is alive and well and is evolving. I will discuss the various features of APL offerings and give my feelings on which should be preserved and which I would be willing to give up. I will discuss newer technologies including parallelism and distributed processing which provide platforms where array technology can thrive. I will discuss a project to move APL computing to the Cloud."

Jim Brown's Ph.D. thesis contained many of the extensions realized in IBM's APL2. He was IBM's chief architect for APL2. After retiring from IBM he founded SmartArrays with James Wheeler from STSC/Manugistics/APL2000. He has recently formed NestedComputing with Mircea Morosan, Morten Kromberg, and Gitte Christensen.

Will regular attendees at BAA-London meetings please note that this is on a Thursday not a Friday and in the evening not the afternoon.

And will everyone else note that it is only nine days from today.
