Conferences dedicated to Alan Turing

Alan Turing Year
As part of the Alan Turing Year celebrations academic conferences all around the world are dedicating themselves to Alan Turing to commemorate his centenary. For example the 20th International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR-XX) which I am co-chairing in Lyon, France in September says: "ICCBR-XX is dedicated to the work of Alan Turing (1912-1954) as part of the 2012 Alan Turing Year, a series of events to commemorate Turing's life and work. We do so here by remembering that were it not for Turing's seminal work in mathematics, computer science, artificial intelligence and bioinformatics this conference would not be taking place."
