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.

The Programme Committee (Dag Normann and Ivan Soskov co-chairs) 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 2011 tohttp://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cie2011. 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. Other accepted contributed papers together with abstracts of informal presentations will appear in our local pre-conference proceedings volume.

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 (see below for the 'Women in Computability' grants).

IMPORTANT DATES:
Submission Deadline: January 28, 2011
Notification of Authors: March 12, 2011
Final Version: April 2, 2011

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.

Submissions authored or co-authored by a Programme Committee member are not allowed.
