In 1962, the first stored-program digital computer was installed in Western Australia by Dennis Moore. Also in 1962, the Western Australian Computer Society was formed with Dennis as the Chair. He then led that Society into the formation of the national Australian Computer Society with Dennis as the inaugural Chair.
The 1962 Awards is a celebration of this monumental time in Western Australia’s IT industry and to recognise and encourage excellence in ICT studies.
