Banquet at King's College

Conference Banquet at King's College, Thursday 21 June, 2012

Alan Turing arrived at King's College, Cambridge, as a nineteen year-old undergraduate in 1931, the same year that Gödel's Incompleteness Theorems appeared. Turing was elected a Fellow of King's College in 1935.

The Great Hall will provide an appropriate backdrop to the distinguished gathering, brought together to celebrate the life and scientific contribution of one of King's College's most remarkable alumni.

It is anticipated that Sir John Dermot Turing, and other members of the Turing family will be present at the banquet. And that Dermot will say a few words about his famous uncle, and his father John Turing, at some point during the evening. See his opening of the Alan Turing Building at the Open University.
