Jalandhar, September 14, 2012:  The School of Computer Applications of Lovely Professional University has been organising a two-day International Conference on Computing Sciences-"Turing100- ICCS”.

Eminent Scientists, Academicians and personalities of Illustrious backgrounds from  US Universities like Princeton University, Kansas State University, IOWA State University; IBM Research Labs; Pentagram Research Centre and of many reputed Indian Universities are  participating in the conference, to be concluded on  15th September, 2012.  

About 90 speakers will present their highly valuable thoughts on both of the days.

More than 1,000 academicians and students are taking active part in the conference.

The conference was inaugurated by the Chief Patron of the Conference- LPU Chancellor Ashok Mittal by lighting of the lamp. He was accompanied by the patrons of the conference, Pro-Chancellor Rashmi Mittal and Vice-Chancellor Dr Ramesh Kanwar.

Speaking on the different topics of Computing Sciences Interest, the visiting scholars from US Universities informed how new technology is going to revolutionise our life for day to day betterment and advancement.  Even the global technology and innovation company-IBM, which is Leader of the world, showcased its view point how computing sciences stand for progress around the world.  

The Speakers touched the topics of keen interest like Security and Privacy; Data Engineering; Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence; Mathematical theory of Computability; Internet and Services Computing; Hardware Systems and Architecture; Steering Committee.

Inaugurating the Conference, the Chief Patron of the Conference- LPU Chancellor Ashok Mittal said: “We have organized this International Conference on Computing Sciences to pay homage to the Father of modern Computer Sciences-Alan Turing, by celebrating his 100th Birth centenary at LPU.  While welcoming the top international and national speakers of eminence; I implore all other registered participants to make the most of this conference practically. The view-points from great personalities should not be considered as paper work only.” He also held: “This conference is certainly going to further help the student to learn to invent and integrate hardware, software and services to help forward-thinking and in building a safe & a smarter planet.

In fact, Year 2012 marks the 100th Birth Centenary of Alan Turing. Though he was born in London, he was conceived in British India. During his relatively brief life, Turing made a unique impact on the History of Computing, Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Cryptanalysis, Developmental Biology and mathematical theory of computability."
