June 23, 2012 is the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Alan Turing, and numerous observations are being planned for 2012. A calendar of events can be found on the Alan Turing Year web page, which can be accessed by clicking on the picture of Turing to the right. As part of the celebration, the AMS (American Mathematical Society) and the ASL (Association for Symbolic Logic) are sponsoring a joint special session on The Life and Legacy of Alan Turing on January 4-5 at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Boston Massachusetts. This session will address Turing's impact on the mathematical sciences and related areas including:

- Turing machines, Turing degrees, Turing tests, etc.,
- mathematical logic, computability theory, history of mathematics,
- theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence, philosophy of mind,
- philosophy of mathematics, cryptography, and morphogenesis.

Many of the talks in the session will be appropriate for a general audience and of interest to students and professionals in mathematics, logic, and related areas.
