June 23, 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of Alan Turing's birth. The ACM A.M. Turing Award, given by ACM since 1966 in recognition of contributions to computing and computer science, is widely held to be the most prestigious award in computing. To celebrate the Turing Centenary ACM is organizing a special event on Friday, June 15 and Saturday, June 16, 2012.
The ACM A.M. Turing Centenary Celebration program centers on the ACM A.M. Turing Award winners, thirty-three of whom will attend and participate in the Celebration. The Technical Program includes moderated panels and invited talks from select speakers and focuses on Alan Turing's contributions, as well as the history, and the future of computing. By bringing together so many ACM A.M. Turing Award winners to reflect on Alan Turing's contribution and share their views on the past and future of computing, the ACM A.M. Turing Centenary Celebration will engage researchers, academics, students, and the public in a conversation about the importance and direction of our discipline.
