The Turing Centenary Conference will give best paper awards to the best selected submissions. There are several awards:

  • The best paper award of £5,000
  • The best young researcher paper award of £3,000
  • The second best paper award of £2,500
  • The second best young researcher paper award of £1,500
  • Sixteen (16) awards of £500 each.

The awards will be decided by the programme committee. The programme committee members are not eligible for awards. The programme committee may decide not to give and/or split some of the awards.

The papers submitted for the best paper award must be original and not submitted elsewhere. At least one author of every paper receiving an award must attend the conference.

To qualify for the young researchers paper awards, all authors must be not older than 35 years at the time of the conference, that is, they should be born on or after June 23, 1977.


The best paper award evaluation procedure will be as follows:

  • The authors should submit their paper to the poster session by April 16.
  • The programme committee will make a decision about acceptance of papers for the poster session and select a subset of papers to be considered candidates for the awards (May 1).
  • The authors of the selected papers should submit full papers for the second round of reviewing by May 15.
  • The program committee will review full versions of the selected papers and make decisions on the awards (June 14).

All papers accepted to the poster session will appear in the conference proceedings, to be available at the conference. In addition, the final version of all papers selected for awards will be published in a book dedicated to the conference, together with papers by some invited and panel speakers. The book will be published after the conference. For more details see the submission page.
