CiE 2016: Pursuit of the Universal

Paris, France

June 27 - July 1st, 2016


EXTENDED Submission deadline for LNCS: January 10, 2016
Notification of authors: March 20, 2016

CiE 2016's Motto is: "Pursuit of the Universal". This year's conference
will open with a special tribute session that CiE society is dedicating to
the former CiE president, Barry Cooper who unexpectedly passed away on
October 26th 2015. Barry was originally scheduled as a plenary speaker at
this year's conference.

The year 2016 brings the eightieth anniversary of the publication of Alan
Turing's seminal paper featuring the Universal Turing Machine. Just as the
semantics of the machine gave rise to Incomputability, and pointed to
future directions in proof theory, AI, generalized computability, the
underlying role of typed information and natural language, and the
computability and definability underpinning bioinformatics: so our
conference subtitle honors Turing's role in anticipating the quest for
universal computational frameworks across a wide spectrum of scientific
and humanist disciplines.

CiE 2016 is the twelfth 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), Ponte
Delgada (2010), Sofia (2011), Cambridge (2012), Milan (2013), Budapest
(2014) and Bucharest (2015).

The PROGRAMME COMMITTEE cordially invites all researchers (European and

for presentation at the conference and inclusion in the proceedings at

Papers must be submitted in PDF format, using the LNCS style (available at 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 that build bridges between different parts of the research
community are particularly welcome.

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