The Alan Turing Year 2012 has started

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. The year 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 

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 

The first events of the ATY are:
