Advanced Programming Group

The Advanced Programming Group (APSG) is a Specialist Group (SG) of the British Computer Society (BCS). It held its first meeting, when it was referred to as "BCS Study Group No. 5", at Bishop's House, High Holborn, London WC1, England on 17 December 1959. It has met continuously in London since then, generally on the second Thursday of the months from October to May each year.

Its purpose is to disseminate information on emerging concepts, programming languages, tools and techniques. Rather than relying on publication, the main format for communication is a talk from an invited speaker whose slides are made available on the Group's website

Past chairmen of the Group were Ewart Willey (first chairman 1959–1974), Peter King (1974–1980) and Peter Prowse (1980–1982). The current chairman is Prof. John Florentin (1982–).

From time to time, the Group holds joint meetings with other BCS SGs, for example:

The Group has had several recent talks focusing on each of the following topic areas:
