           COMPUTABILITY IN EUROPE 2010: Programs, Proofs, Processes
               Ponta Delgada (Azores), Portugal
                   June 30 to July 5 2010

            Deadline for submissions: 20 JANUARY, 2010

Computability in Europe provides the largest international conference
dealing with the full spectrum of computability-related research.

CiE 2010 in the Azores is the sixth conference of the Series, held in a
geographically unique and dramatic location, Europe's most Westerly
outpost. The theme of CiE 2010 - "Programs, Proofs, Processes" - points
to the usual CiE synergy of Computer Science, Mathematics and Logic,
with important computability-theoretic connections to science and the
real universe.

TUTORIALS: Jeffrey Bub (Information, Computation, and Physics),
Bruno Codenotti (Computational Game Theory).

CONFIRMED INVITED SPEAKERS: Eric Allender, Jose L. Balcazar, Denis
Hirschfeldt, Seth Lloyd, Sara Negri, Toniann Pitassi, and Ronald de Wolf,

Biological Computing, organizers: Paola Bonizzoni, Krishna Narayanan
Computational Complexity, organizers: Alan Selman, Elvira Mayordomo
Computability of the Physical, organizers: Barry Cooper, Cris Calude
Proof Theory and Computation, organizers: Martin Hyland, Fernando Ferreira
Reasoning and Computation from Leibniz to Boole, organizers: N.N.
Web Algorithms and Computation, organizers: Martin Olsen, Thomas Erlebach.

CiE serves as an interdisciplinary forum for research in all aspects of
computability and foundations of computer science, as well as the
interplay of these theoretical areas with practical issues in computer
science and with other disciplines such as biology, mathematics,
philosophy, or physics.

Formal systems, attendant proofs, and the possibility of their computer
generation and manipulation (for instance, into programs) have been
changing a whole spectrum of disciplines. The conference will address
not only the more established lines of research of Computational
Complexity and the interplay between Proofs and Computation, but also
novel views that rely on physical and biological processes and models to
find new ways of tackling computations and improving their efficiency.

We particularly invite papers that build bridges between different parts
of the research community. Since women are underrepresented in
mathematics and computer science, we emphatically encourage submissions
by female authors. The Elsevier Foundation is supporting the CiE
conference series in the programme "Increasing representation of female
researchers in the computability community". This programme will allow
us to fund child-care support, a mentoring system for young female
researchers, and also a small number of grants for female researchers,
covering their registration fees.

The dates around the submission process are as follows:

The Programme Committee cordially invites all researchers in the area of
the conference to submit their papers (in PDF-format, at most 10 pages)
for presentation at CiE 2010.

The best of the accepted papers will be published in the conference
proceedings within the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series
of Springer, which will be available at the conference. Authors of
accepted papers are expected to present their work at the conference.
Submitted papers must describe work not previously published, and they
must neither be accepted nor under review at a journal or at another
conference with refereed proceedings.

All papers need to be prepared in LNCS-style LaTeX. Papers should not
exceed 10 pages; full proofs may appear in a technical appendix which
will be read at the reviewers' discretion.

Every paper that has only student authors is eligible for the "CiE 
2010 Best Student Paper Award". If your submission satisfies the 
requirements, please submit your paper in the category "Regular paper 
(eligible for Best Student Paper Award)". The Programme Committee 
will select the best submission among these after notification. The 
recipient of the Best Student Paper Award will get a fee waiver of 
the registration fee, a certificate, and a small symbolic cash prize.

Submissions authored or co-authored by members of the Programme
Committee are not allowed.
