The event kicks off with Festival Day which covers a selection of themes. Past topics have included the future of communications technology, the BBC Computer Literacy project — which gave birth to the BBC Micro — the secrets of particle accelerators and spacecraft thermal engineering. As the week progresses, attendees can also participate in a variety of partner events.
Event organisers want tech enthusiasts from across the North of England and beyond to get involved.
Andrew Back, Wuthering Bytes co-founder, said: "Wuthering Bytes is a great opportunity to bring people together who all have one thing in common – a passion for technology. We already have some fantastic events confirmed for the festival, but there's space for more.
"If you have an idea for a day of talks, a workshop or a roundtable discussion around design, hardware, science or tech, we'd love to hear from you."
