CFP: Turing in Context II
Submission deadline: Wednesday, August 15 2012
Wednesday, October 10 2012 - Friday, October 12 2012
Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Sciences and the Arts
In the spirit of Alan Turing's interdisciplinary research, an international meeting will be held at the Royal Flemish Academy for the Sciences and Arts, exploring recent research into the many directions brought together in his work.
This meeting is the second Turing in Context event during the 2012 Turing centennial. The first was held at King's College, Cambridge, 18-19 February 2012. It was an outreach event for the general academic public with invited speakers only. Turing in Context II is a research meeting meant for experts in the fields touched by Turing's contributions to science.
Topics of the meeting include but are not restricted to:
- history and theory of symbolic and physical machines
- human and artificial intelligence
- logic, computability and complexity
We cordially invite contributions in all fields relating to the work and legacy of Alan Turing, both current research continuing Turing's ideas, and historical and philosophical reflections on them. Researchers from areas that Turing worked in but are not listed above, such as pattern formation and cryptography are explicitly encouraged to submit as well.
Submissions should be 200-500 words abstracts and should be submitted to EasyChair via the following link:
Authors of accepted papers will later be invited to send an extended abstract (max. 6 pages) to be reviewed by the programme committee for publication in a volume of the Academy Proceedings Series. A volume of full papers might follow after the conference.
Deadline Submission of Abstracts: August 15, 2012
Notification of Acceptance: August 31, 2012
Conference: October 10-12, 2012
