   The Mayor of the City of Cambridge, Councillor Sheila Stuart, will be unveiling a Blue Plaque 
to commemorate Alan Turing at 3.30 p.m. on Saturday 23rd June on the grass in front of King's 
College.

   The unveiling will be streamed live on the King's College webpage.

   23rd June is the centenary of Alan Turing's birth in London. During his relatively brief life 
he made a unique impact on the history of computing, computer science, artificial intelligence, 
developmental biology and the mathematical theory of computability.  Alan Turing also played a 
significant part as a key member of the code breaking team at Bletchley Park breaking the German 
Enigma codes during the Second World War.  2012 will be a celebration of Turing's life and 
scientific impact with a number of major events taking place throughout the year which are linked 
to places with special significance in Turing's life, such as Cambridge, Manchester and Bletchley Park.

   The international impact of Turing's work is also reflected in the growing list of countries 
planning Alan Turing year celebrations, including Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, 
Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Portugal, Spain, 
Switzerland and the USA.
