  Computability in Europe 2007: Computation and Logic in the Real World

     Department of Mathematics and Computer Science "Roberto Magari"
                       University of Siena
                      Siena, 18-23 June 2007


Submission of papers: Jan. 12, 2007
Notification of authors: Feb. 16, 2007
Deadline for final revisions: Mar. 9, 2007

The Third Conference CiE  2007,  organised  by  CiE  (Computability  in
Europe) will take place at the University of Siena, June 18-23 2007

CiE is  a  European  network  of  mathematicians,  logicians,  computer
scientists,  philosophers, theoretical physicists and others interested
in   new   developments   in  computability  and  in  their  underlying
significance for the real world.

CiE 2007 will address various aspects of  the  ways  computability  and
theoretical computer science enable scientists and philosophers to deal
with mathematical and  real  world  issues,  ranging  through  problems
related to logic, mathematics, physical processes, real computation and
learning theory. At the same time it will focus on  different  ways  in
which  computability  emerges from the real world, and how this affects
our way of thinking about everyday computational issues.

CiE 2007 will be co-located with  the  annual  CCA  (Computability  and
Complexity  in  Analysis) Conference (Siena, College Santa Chiara, June
16-18, 2007):

The PROGRAMME COMMITTEE cordially invites all researchers (European and
non-European) in computability related areas to submit their papers (in
PDF-format, max 10 pages) for presentation at CiE 2007. 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.

The conference is sponsored by AILA, EATCS, ASL, EACSL.
