Final call for papers

            COMPUTABILITY IN EUROPE 2010: Programs, Proofs, Processes
               Ponta Delgada (Azores), Portugal
                   June 30 to July 4, 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 

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

Denis Hirschfeldt, Seth Lloyd, Sara Negri, Toniann Pitassi, and 
Ronald de Wolf.

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 junior female 
researchers (see below).

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 must not 
exceed 10 pages. Full proofs may appear in a technical appendix which 
will be read at the reviewers' discretion. Submissions authored or 
co-authored by members of the Programme Committee are not allowed.

Papers that have only student authors are 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 acceptance. 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.

Funded by the Elsevier Foundation's programme 'Women in Computability' 
we shall offer five travel grants (covering registration fee and up 
to 300 EUR in reimbursement for travel and accomodation expenses) 
for junior female researchers. More information will become available 
in March 2010.

Funded by the Elsevier journal Annals of Pure and Applied Logic 
(APAL), the organizers are offering a number of travel grants 
(including fee waivers and a modest reimbursement of travel and 
accommodation expenses) for students to attend CiE 2010. Student 
authors of accepted papers will have priority for these grants.

The Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL) sponsors modest student 
member travel grants. See 

New funding opportunities are expected to be offered. For more 
details concerning funding and up to date information, please consult
