CFP: CiE2008 Computability in Europe 2008: Logic and Theory of Algorithms - extended deadline

http://www.cs.swan.ac.uk/cie08/grants.php

Due to hugh request, we have extended the paper submission deadline to
            January 14th, 2008

********************************************************************

   Computability in Europe 2008: Logic and Theory of Algorithms
                 University of Athens, June 15-20 2008
                    http://www.cs.swan.ac.uk/cie08/


EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE:
            January 14th, 2008

CiE 2008 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.


TUTORIALS will be given by:
John V. Tucker (Swansea)
Moshe Y. Vardi (Houston, TX)

PLENARY SPEAKERS will include:
Keith Devlin (Stanford, CA)
Rosalie Iemhoff (Utrecht)
Antonina Kolokolova (Vancouver, BC)
Janos Makowsky (Haifa)
Dag Normann (Oslo)
Prakash Panangaden (Montreal, QC)
Christos Papadimitriou (Berkeley, CA)
Jan van Leeuwen (Utrecht) & Jiri Wiedermann (Prague)
