2) Informal Presentations

There is a remarkable difference in conference style between
computer science and mathematics conferences. Mathematics
conferences allow for informal presentations that are prepared
very shortly before the conference and inform the participants
about current research and work in progress. The format of
computer science conferences with pre-produced proceedings
volumes is not able to accommodate this form of scientific

Continuing the tradition of past CiE conferences, also this 
year's CiE conference endeavours to get the best of both worlds. 
In addition to the formal presentations based on our LNCS 
proceedings volume, we invite researchers to present informal 
presentations. For this, please send us a brief description of 
your talk (between one paragraph and half a page) before

                         30 April 2008.

Please submit your abstract via our Submission Form, now online
You will be notified whether your informal presentation has been
accepted before 15 May 2008.

Let us remind you that there will be three post-conference 
publications of CiE 2008, see
All speakers, including the speakers of informal presentations, 
are eligible to be invited to submit a full journal version of 
their talk to one of the post-conference publications.
