Day 2 (July 3th 2012) -- CONFERENCE ON TURING’S HERITAGE: LOGIC, COMPUTATION & COMPLEXITY (in English)
- Leslie Valiant, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University, USA

Day 3 (July 4th 2012) -- WORKSHOP ON COMPLEXITY & FINITE MODELS (in English)
This is the annual meeting of the French working group on complexity and finite models (http://www.up2.fr/cmf/).
We welcome talks by resarchers from inside or outside the working group, on topics related to finite model theory OR computational complexity (including those complexity-theoretic topics that have no connection to finite models).
ORGANIZING & SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE
- Gilles Dowek, Deputy Scientific Director of INRIA
- Eric Fleury, Professor at ENS de Lyon, Head of the CS department
- Pascal Koiran, Professor at the CS department of ENS de Lyon
- Alexandre Miquel, Associate professor, ENS de Lyon
- Gilles Villard, Senior researcher at CNRS, Head of the CS laboratory (LIP) at ENS de Lyon.
AIMS AND SCOPE
Alan Turing made a unique impact on mathematics, computing, computer science, informatics, morphogenesis, artificial intelligence, philosophy and the wider scientific world. June 23, 2012, is the Centenary of Alan Turing’s birth.
This Turing Centenary Conference will be held in Lyon on July 2-4, 2012. The whole conference will be composed of four main parts:
- On the first day, 6 public lectures intended for a broad audience. These 6 lectures, in French, given by researchers in computer science, philosophy and epistemology, will cover the influence of Turing’s work on our society.
At the end of the first day, Leslie Valiant will be awarded an honorary degree from ENS de Lyon. He is currently T. Jefferson Coolidge Professor of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University. He received the Nevanlinna Prize in 1986, the Knuth Award in 1997, the EATCS Award in 2008, and the 2010 A. M. Turing Award. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society (London) and a member of the National Academy of Sciences (USA).
- On the second day, an international conference on “Turing’s heritage: Logic, Computation & Complexity“ (in English) that includes 6 invited talks (see the program on the web site http://www.turing2012.fr/)
- and on the last day, a workshop on “complexity and finite models”.
The conference is organised by the computer science department at ENS de Lyon, the computer science research laboratory at ENS de Lyon and the Excellence initiative laboratory in Mathematics and Computer Science (MILYON). All talks will be recorded, live-streamed and available online after the conference.
