    COMPUTABILITY IN EUROPE 2013: The Nature of Computation
                        Milan, Italy
                      July  1 - 5, 2013



  There is a remarkable difference in conference style between computer
  science and mathematics conferences. Mathematics conferences allow for
  informal presentations that are prepared very shortly before the conference
  and inform the participants about current research and work in progress. The
  format of computer science conferences with pre-conference proceedings is
  not able to accommodate this form of scientific communication.

  Continuing the tradition of past CiE conferences, this year's CiE conference
  endeavours to get the best of both worlds. In addition to the formal
  presentations based on our LNCS proceedings volume, we invite researchers to
  present informal presentations. For this, please send us a brief description
  of your talk (between one paragraph and one page) by the DEADLINE:

  MAY 31, 2013

  Please submit your abstract electronically, via EasyChair
  <https://www.easychair.org/login.cgi?conf=cie2013>, selecting the category
  "Informal Presentation".

  You will be notified whether your talk has been accepted for informal
  presentation usually within a week after your submission.

  If you intend to apply for the ASL Student Travel Award, you might need us
  to confirm that your are going to give a presentation at CiE 2013
  (applications of students who are presenting get higher priority).
  Therefore, we would like to ask you to submit your informal presentations by
  26 March so that we can send you the notification before the ASL deadline of
  1 April 2013.


  Grants for students, members of the ASL:

  The Association for Symbolic Logic <http://www.aslonline.org  has decided
  to sponsor some students that are ASL members and willing to attend CiE2013.
  The eligible students may apply for ASL travel funds that are available for
  sponsored meetings, see http://www.aslonline.org/studenttravelawards.html
  for detailed instructions on the application process. Applications should be
  received at least three months prior to the conference.


  Under the name Elsevier Women in Computability (WiC), the publisher Elsevier
  (more precisely, the journals 'Annals of Pure and Applied Logic' and
  'Theoretical Computer Science') is continuing the programme 'Increasing
  representation of female researchers in the computability community'
  originally funded by the Elsevier Foundation (2008-2010).

  This programme will fund the WiC workshop at CiE 2013, with the traditional
  WiC dinner for workshop participants afterwards, and offer up to four grants
  with modest support (up to 200 EUR) for junior female researchers to attend
  CiE 2013. Every registered junior female researcher is eligible to apply.
  Preference will be given to researchers who present a paper (contributed
  paper or informal talk).

  Applications should contain a short CV (max 1 page) and contact information
  for an academic reference. The application should be sent to Mariya Soskova
  <msoskova at gmail.com <http://msoskova@gmail.com > before the deadline of
  April 1, 2013.

  EACTS Students

  The European Association for Theoretical Computer Science has decided to
  sponsor all students that are EATCS members and willing to attend CiE2013.
  The early registration fee for EATCS students is 30 cheaper than the one
  for non-members.
