ACM A. M. Turing Award Symposium

June 23-24, 2017 at the Westin St. Francis, San Francisco, CA

Since its inauguration in 1966, the ACM A. M. Turing Award has recognized major contributions of lasting importance in computing. Through the years, it has become the most prestigious technical award in the field, and is often referred to as the "Nobel Prize" of computing.

During the next several months, ACM will celebrate 50 years of the ACM Turing Award and the visionaries who have received it. Our aim is to highlight the significant impact of the contributions of the Turing laureates on computing and society. Our celebration will culminate with a symposium on June 23-24, 2017 at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco, which will include moderated discussions exploring how computing has evolved and where the field is headed. The event will be free of charge, and we'll notify you when online registration opens.

We have created two-minute and five-minute videos highlighting the event in June:
