2nd CFP: Computability in Europe 2008: Logic and Theory of Algorithms (CiE 2008)
SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS CiE 2008 http://www.cs.swan.ac.uk/cie08/ Computability in Europe 2008: Logic and Theory of Algorithms University of Athens Athens, June 15-20 2008 PAPER SUBMISSION is now OPEN: http://www.cs.swan.ac.uk/cie08/submission.php This is the fourth in a series of conferences organised by CiE (Computability in Europe), a European network of mathematicians, logicians, computer scientists, philosophers, physicists and others interested in new developments in computability and their underlying significance for the real world. Previous meetings took place in Amsterdam (2005), Swansea (2006) and Siena (2007). CiE 2008 aims at bridging the gap from the logical methods of mathematical and meta-mathematical flavour to the applied and industrial questions that are involved in devising and choosing the right algorithms and analysing their effectiveness and efficiency. IMPORTANT DATES: Submission of papers: January 4, 2008 Notification of authors: February 15, 2008 Final revisions: March 7, 2008 TUTORIALS will be given by: John V. Tucker (Swansea) Moshe Y.

Zachos (New York NY) We cordially invite all researchers (European and non-European) in computability related areas to submit their papers (in PDF- format, max 10 pages) for presentation at CiE 2008. We particularly invite papers that build bridges between different parts of the research community. The CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS will be published by LNCS, Springer-Verlag. There will also be journal special issues, collecting invited contributions related to the conference. So far we have secured special issues in the journals "Theory of Computing Systems" and "Archive for Mathematical Logic".
