AISB event Bulletin Item

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: "The Mathematical Legacy of Alan Turing" (Spitalfields Day), 9 Jan 2012, Cambridge (U.K.)

On the 9th January 2012, the programme "Semantics & Syntax" will be officially opened. In addition 
to being the official opening of the programme, this event will provide the general mathematical 
public (with strong emphasis on postgraduate students) a glimpse of the current state of the art 
and explain what is going to happen during the six months at Cambridge.

The day is one of the Spitalfields Days of the London Mathematical Society, named in honour of the 
Spitalfields Mathematical Society, a precursor of the London Mathematical Society which flourished 
from 1717 to 1845. Spitalfields Days provide survey lectures aimed at a general mathematical 

With four survey lectures of leading experts of the field, we shall allow everyone who is planning 
to be engaged with the programme to glimpse of the relevance and the importance of the involved 
fields. We shall also offer postgraduate students the opportunity of collecting information about 
how they can get involved with the programme as workshop participants or junior fellow.

We invite interested researchers and postgraduate students from all institutions in the UK to come 
and listen to the tutorials.

The speakers are:

      Dr George Barmpalias (Chinese Academy of Sciences, China): Measures of relative complexity
      Professor Anuj Dawar (University of Cambridge, UK): On Syntactic and Semantic Complexity Classes
      Professor Nigel Smart (University of Bristol, UK) on modern cryptography
      Professor Hugh Woodin (UC Berkeley, USA) on Slaman-Woodin conjecture and structure of the Turing degrees

Anyone interested is welcome to attend; talks will be aimed at a general mathematical audience. 
Please let the Programme and Visitor Officer at the Institute know if you intend to come by 
emailing the Programme and Visitor Officer at

There will be no accommodation available from the Institute, therefore participants are encouraged 
to make their own arrangments. Our suggested accommodation listing can be found here.

The London Mathematical Society supports the Spitalfields Day by providing a limited number of 
modest travel grants (100) for postgraduate students. 
If you wish to apply for such a grant, please contact the organizer at 
by 15 December 2011.
