NEW JOURNAL: Computability, The Journal of the Association CiE

Now Accepting Submissions! First volume to be published in 2012 as part of the celebrations of the Alan Turing Year

Aims and Scope

Computability is the journal of the Association Computability in Europe and it is published by IOS

The journal Computability is a peer reviewed international journal that is devoted to publishing 
original research of highest quality, which is centered around the topic of computability.
