Dear all,

please find below a first Call for Papers for Computability in Europe 
2018, to be held from July 30 to August 3 in Kiel, Germany and which 
might be of interest to some people on this list. While the main 
audience of CiE conferences are, traditionally, logicians, 
mathematicians and computer scientists, the ambition of the conference 
is really to be as inclusive as possible and every year there are also 
some more historical talks.

It is also for that reason that the commission for the History and 
Philosophy of Computing has been asked to coordinate a HaPoC special 
issue since a couple of years now. Because of that, the commission is 
happy to announce the possibility of some small grants (up to 250 USD) 
for participants to the conference who presents a paper that has a clear 
historical and/or philosophical dimension. For more information, please 
do not hesitate to contact me. More details can be found here: 

with best wishes,

Apologies for multiple postings.

CiE 2018 is the fourteenth conference organized by CiE (Computability in 
Europe), a European association 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 have taken place in Amsterdam (2005), Swansea (2006), 
Siena (2007), Athens (2008), Heidelberg (2009), Ponta Delgada (2010), 
Sofia (2011), Cambridge (2012), Milan (2013), Budapest (2014), Bucharest 
(2015), Paris (2016), and Turku (2017).

The CiE conferences serve as an interdisciplinary forum for research in 
all aspects
of computability, foundations of computer science, logic, and 
theoretical computer science, as well as the interplay of these areas 
with practical issues in computer science and with other disciplines 
such as biology, mathematics, philosophy, or physics.

THE PROGRAMME COMMITTEE cordially invites all researchers (European and 
non-European) to submit their papers in all areas related to the above 
for presentation at the conference and inclusion in the proceedings at 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cie2018 .

Papers must be submitted in PDF format, using the LNCS style (available 
at ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/llncs/latex2e/llncs2e.zip) and 
should have a maximum of 10 pages, including references but excluding a 
possible appendix in which one can include proofs and other additional 
material. Papers building bridges between different parts of the 
research community are particularly welcome.

The CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS will be published by LNCS, Springer Verlag.


Continuing the tradition of past CiE conferences, in addition to the 
formal presentations based on the LNCS proceedings volume, CiE 2018 will 
host a track of informal presentations, that are prepared very shortly 
before the conference and inform the participants about current research 
and work in progress. The deadline for the submission of abstracts for 
informal presentations is May 1st, 2018.


We are very happy to announce that within the framework of the Women in 
Computability programme, sponsored by ACM-Women, we are able to offer 
four grants of up to 250 EUR for junior female researchers who want to 
participate in CiE 2018. Applications for this grant should be sent to 
Liesbeth De Mol, liesbeth.demol at univ-lille3.fr, before 15 May 2018 and 
include a short cv (at most 2 pages) and contact information for an 
academic reference. Preference will be given to junior female 
researchers who are presenting a paper (including informal 
presentations) at CiE 2018.
