Iverson College

Iverson College is a residential event for array programmers, and for people interested in what’s happening with vector programming languages.

We meet again in 2024 – for the first time since the Covid pandemic – back at our first venue, Trinity Hall in Cambridge, from 18–24 August.

We are implementers and developers, insiders and outsiders, experienced and new. For a week we live together as students. We bring our work, we do it, and we share it.

We are the programme.

Our informal talks are lively; they fit the moment and the conversation. Participants report that the time and space of our meetings nourish deeper and more useful conversations than conferences can.

Since our last meeting the Array Cast began. The podcast has connected us to more language designers than ever before. Most of the podcast crew will be with us; our 2024 meeting looks like being the most eclectic yet.

Previous meetings

Iverson College first met in 2011 at Trinity Hall, Cambridge.
