CALL FOR PAPERS: IFCoLog-CiE Student Session, 18-23 Jun 2012, Cambridge (U.K.),

In conjunction with CiE 2012, TURING CENTENARY CONFERENCE - How the World Computes

Important Dates
     * 11 May 2012: Submission deadline
     * 31 May 2012: Author notification
     * 18-23 June 2012: Student Sessions

The contributions and program will be available online before the event.


The CiE-IFCoLog student sessions is an initiative to encourage undergraduate and master students to
present their research projects at high profile computer science events, and offer a good 
opportunity for undergraduate and masters students to interact with more senior researchers. In 
2012 CiE is celebrating the life achievements of Alan Turing and we believe that being involved in 
this event, will be an exciting opportunity for young people contemplating a research career.


The CiE-IFCoLog student sessions will consider papers in all aspects of computability and 
foundations of computer science, as well as well as papers exploring the interplay of these 
theoretical areas with practical issues in computer science and with other disciplines such as 
biology, mathematics, philosophy, or physics.

See CiE's CFP for a list of topics:
