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 .

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 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,, 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.

HaPoC Grants | Commission for the History and Philosophy of Computing

The HaPoc Council is happy to announce the availability of two HAPOC
travel grants of 250USD each to support participation to the
conference. To be eligible for a grant, a paper or informal
presentation in the area of history and/or philosophy of computing
accepted at CiE 2018 is required. In order to apply for a grant,
please send the following details to cv, the paper or
informal presentation submitted, accompanied by the acceptance email,
a detailed budget indicating any other funding possibilities (if
