A public lecture on Green Computing open to IEEE members at Emmanuel College,
Cambridge, UK, on 28 March 2012.

June 23, 2012, is the Centenary of Alan Turing’s birth in London. During
his relatively brief life, Turing made a unique impact on the history of
computer science.

A number of major events will take place throughout the year. Most of
these will be linked to places with special significance in Turing’s
life, such as Cambridge, Manchester and Bletchley Park.
