FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS:(and new deadline): CiE 2013: The Nature of Computation, 1-5 Jul 2013, Milan, ITALY

ALL FINAL SUBMISSION needed by *February 2nd 2013*
The organisers have received several requests for extending the deadline.

The server for submissions to CIE 2013 will remain
open for new submissions until January 30th. Revised
versions of papers may be submitted until February 2nd, as
long as a preliminary version including an abstract has been submitted
by January 30th.

Computability in Europe provides the largest international conference
dealing with the full spectrum of computability-related research.
The Nature of Computation is meant to emphasize the special focus of
CIE13 on the unexpected and strong changes that studies on Nature have
brought in several areas of mathematics, physics, and computer science.
Starting from Alan Turing, research on Nature with a computational
perspective has produced novel contributions, giving rise even to new

We particularly welcome submissions in emergent areas, such as
bioinformatics and natural computation, where they have a basic
connection with computability.


Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the 
conference. Each presentation will be 25 minutes long, including the time 
for the eventual discussion. 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. Authors 
are required to submit their manuscripts electronically in PDF using the 
LNCS style. Authors using LaTeX can download the needed macros at 
Springer-Verlag site. Papers should not exceed 10 pages; full proofs may 
appear in a clearly marked technical appendix which will be read at the 
reviewers' discretion. The submission process is managed by EasyChair and

The proceedings will be available at the conference venue. The CONFERENCE 
PROCEEDINGS will be published by LNCS, Springer Verlag.
