Meeting Description:

Turing Centenary Conference
Computability in Europe 2012: How the World Computes
University of Cambridge, Cambridge
June 18-23, 2012

CiE 2012 is one of a series of special events, running throughout the Alan Turing Year, celebrating Turing's unique impact on mathematics, computing, computer science, informatics, morphogenesis, artificial intelligence, philosophy and computational aspects of physics, biology, linguistics, connectionist models, economics and the wider scientific world.

CiE 2012 is planned to be an event worthy of the remarkable scientific career it commemorates.

June 23, 2012, is the Centenary of Alan Turing's birth in London. During his relatively brief life, Turing made a unique impact on the history of computing, computer science, artificial intelligence, developmental biology, and the mathematical theory of computability.

2012 will be a celebration of Turing's life and scientific impact, with a number of major events taking place throughout the year. Most of these will be linked to places with special significance in Turing's life, such as Cambridge, Manchester and Bletchley Park.

The Turing Year is coordinated by the Turing Centenary Advisory Committee (TCAC), representing a range of expertise and organisational involvement in the 2012 celebrations. Organisations and individuals wanting to contribute ideas or support for the Turing Year are invited to contact any of the current TCAC members.

Plenary speakers include:

Andrew Hodges (Oxford, Special Invited Lecture), Ian Stewart (Warwick, Special Public Lecture), Dorit Aharonov (Jerusalem), Veronica Becher (Buenos Aires), Lenore Blum (Carnegie Mellon), Rodney Downey (Wellington), Yuri Gurevich (Microsoft), Juris Hartmanis (Cornell), Richard Jozsa (Cambridge), Stuart Kauffman (Vermont/ Santa Fe), James Murray (Washington/ Oxford, Microsoft Research Lecture), Stuart Shieber (Harvard), Paul Smolensky (Johns Hopkins) and Leslie Valiant (Harvard, jointly organised lecture with King's College).

The conference is sponsored by the ASL, EACSL, EATCS, Elsevier Foundation, IFCoLog, King's College Cambridge, The University of Cambridge and Microsoft Research.

Call for Papers:

The Programme Committee cordially invites all researchers (European and non-European) in computability related areas to submit their papers (in PDF-format, max 10 pages) for presentation at CiE 2012. We particularly invite papers that build bridges between different parts of the research community.
