Welcome to the Alan Turing Year Manchester 2012 website.
Here you can find out what events are happening in and around Manchester during this Centenary Year of the birth of Alan Turing.
We have some glowing reports of the Manchester Pride events, with a big
focus on Turing, his achievements and sad history. One very special
initiative coming out of this year's event is the setting up of a 1000
pound bursary in honour of Alan Turing to support the studies of a
computer science student.
Here is the Manchester Evening News report ""Manchester Airport, easyJet
and Manchester Pride team up to launch Alan Turing bursary":
Nice quote from Carolyn McCall OBE, easyJet’s chief executive officer:
“The Alan Turing Computer Science Bursary is a fantastic opportunity to
support creativity in the field of computer science. We’re really proud to
be associated with the event and I’d like to wish all the entrants the
best of luck in securing this invaluable opportunity."
