The second annual workshop of the Turing Centenary Research Project will
be held May 12-14 at the Morningside Campus of Columbia University, New
York City. The research project, funded by the John Templeton Foundation,
is a multidisciplinary activity focused on a number of issues related to
computability in a broad sense - see:

The first workshop was held in Milan, Italy, in June 2013:

This more public event is open to all. As well as short talks from the
winners of the 2012 Turing Centenary competition, this exciting event
features a number of distinguished speakers from a spectrum disciplines.
The meeting will be of particular interest to participants from
mathematics, computer science, biology, linguistics, artificial
intelligence, philosophy - extending to those concerned with
computability-theoretic issues in the humanities, arts and social

        Subject: Towards a Medieval Latin Digital Library - Round Table in Florence


Towards a Medieval Latin Digital Library - A “Medioevo europeo” workshop
(Working group 3 of the COST Action )
April 28, 2014
SISMEL, Firenze, via Montebello 7

A scholarly research in European medieval studies can be only founded on the knowledge and the consultation of the actual sources, which until the XIII century are for the most part in Latin. In this field of studies many digital archives have been growing in last years, which collect medieval Latin texts and documents, and perform different kinds of search on them. A free cross-consultation of such databases could very much help the development of the studies, by giving a unique or at least a main reference for quotations and queries about words, names of persons and places, and concepts across the times and the countries. A first meeting of the responsibles and the operators of those archives can take stock of the actual situation by expounding the different features of every data-base, and will become an occasion to design a project for making the medieval Latin archives interact and develop.
