Samuel Eilenberg, one of mathematicians who shaped 20th century mathematics and made important contributions to theoretical computer science, was born in Warsaw on September 30, 1913. The Centenary Conference will be held in the city of his birth. The intention is to cover all the areas of Eilenberg's great contributions: topology, category theory and computability. The categorical viewpoint developed by Eilenberg and his collaborators lies behind many recent developments, thus the conference will be of relevance to a large body of current research in mathematics. The program of the Conference will consist of plenary lectures and contributed talks covering the wide scope of Eilenberg's mathematical legacy. Some historical materials will be presented to illustrate social context of his life.
