Registration is now open:

           June 12-15, 2012 - Turing Centenary Workshop on
                        "THE INCOMPUTABLE"
  at the Kavli Royal Society International Centre, Chicheley Hall, UK


THE INCOMPUTABLE is a major multidisciplinary workshop of the 6-month
Isaac Newton Institute programme - "Semantics and Syntax: A Legacy of Alan
Turing" (SAS).

It is one of a series of special events, running throughout the Alan
Turing Year, celebrating Turing's unique impact on mathematics, computing,
computer science, informatics, morphogenesis, philosophy and the wider
scientific world. It is held in association with the Turing Centenary
Conference (CiE 2012) in Cambridge the following week, which will run up
to the June 23rd centenary of Turing's birth, and the weekend of
celebrations in Cambridge, Manchester, Bletchley Park, and around the

There will be plenary talks from: Samson Abramsky, Martin Davis, Seth

There will be provision for informal discussions, small research
workshops, and project planning meetings.

THE INCOMPUTABLE, generously supported by the John Templeton Foundation,
promises to be a historic event, bringing the mathematical theory of
incomputability centre-stage once again. Attendance is limited to 120
participants - up to 60 accommodated on-site - so early registration is
