This will be the seventh of the Turing Days organised by the Department of Computer Science at Istanbul Bilgi University. Turing Days in Istanbul brings speakers to discuss the theory of computation and some of its implementations.
Our activity is named in memory of Alan Mathison Turing, the British mathematician (and, more famously, cryptologist) who was one of the founders of computational theory.
The theme of the "Turing Days' 08" is Computer Science and Education. The leading scientists in the field will give seminars about their ideas and experiences for general audience. Also, they will talk over more sophisticated topics regarding their specific research interests.
There are numerous approaches for teaching computer science. It is important to distinguish computer science education from teaching a programming language where the second one is a syntactic issue. Computer science education is about "How to Solve it?". It is a mathematical and design issue so that it is not always coding. It is first about understanding the problem and divide it into small pieces. Then designing solutions to these small problems and finally analysing them.
The target of this event is discuss the state-of-the-art educational practices.
Anybody interested in, or wanting to learn about Computer Science Education is welcomed!
If you want to be an active participant at the conference, we ask you to send a message to fkoksal AT cs bilgi edu tr including a very short summary of what you intend to talk about. If you want to, you can also send an ordinary 6-10 pages long paper, to be included in the Conference Proceeding, provided we get the material not later than March 15.

We hope that this meeting will continue to contribute in getting a wider view of computation theory...
