Turing 2012: The life and works of Alan Turing

In March 2012, De La Salle University-Manila's Department of Philosophy, in cooperation with the College of Liberal Arts, will host Turing 2012, an event that commemorates the centenary birth anniversary of English logician, mathematician, and computer scientist Alan Turing. This week-long event will be from March 26 to 30, 2012. A two-day international conference on Turing's contributions in several disciplines will be its highlight.

Turing 2012 is part of the global effort spearheaded by the Turing Centenary Advisory Committee in celebrating the Alan Turing Year.


Turing is credited for answering the decision problem via a formal theory of computation which relied on the concept of Turing machines. These idealized machines are considered by many as the blueprint of the modern digital computer. He influenced many research areas such as cognitive science including the philosophy of mind.
