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.
At the 6ECM in Krakow (Poland), aspects of Turing's groundbreaking work will be the theme of a special lecture by Philip Welch, University of Bristol, under the title:
Mechanising the Mind: Turing and the Computable
