In 1934 Alan M. Turing argued that machines could imitate thought and, in the essay "Computing Machinery and Intelligence", he proposed what is now known as the Turing Test. A computer and a human are compared by a panel of judges, who address the same questions to both and review their answers. If the judges cannot make distinctions between the two answers, the machine may be considered intelligent.

The Turing test for decades has represented the best calling card for popularizing Artificial Intelligence worldwide. Nowadays, ideas, theories, techniques developed in the research area of Artificial Intelligence are widely applied for producing games, satellite navigators, human-computer interfaces, web applications, automated voice responders, etc.

For celebrating the 100th anniversary of Alan Turing's birth, the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence organizes a workshop aimed at divulging the practical uses of Artificial Intelligence. To this aim, we call for demonstrators (e.g. videos), demos, proposals, systems exploiting AI theories and techniques, short papers which present ideas, and which are written in such a way to make them accessible to a broad public. Prizes will be awarded to different categories of submissions.

The workshop will be organized as a poster session. Each contribution will have some space for a poster and demos and systems will be shown to the public. The best contributions will additionally be presented during a plenary session of AI*IA 2012.
