[PVS] CiE 2012 Turing Centenary Conference, Cambridge - Final Call for Participation



         Computability in Europe 2012: How the World Computes
                      University of Cambridge
                     Cambridge, 18-23 June 2012

CiE 2012 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, artificial intelligence,
philosophy and computational aspects of physics, biology, linguistics,
economics and the wider scientific world.

CiE 2012 is planned to be an event worthy of the remarkable scientific
career it commemorates, and will be the largest ever conference centred on
the Computability Theoretic legacy of Turing and his contemporaries. 
Current registrations indicate a final participation approaching 400, with 
over 240 speakers. 

ONLINE REGISTRATION is invited for this historic event.
