CiE 2015 is the eleventh 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 Dalgada (2010), Sofia (2011), Cambridge (2012), Milan (2013) and Budapest (2014).

Evolution of the universe, and us within it, invite a parallel evolution in understanding. The CiE agenda - fundamental and engaged - targets the extracting and developing of computational models basic to current challenges. From the origins of life, to the understanding of human mentality, to the characterising of quantum randomness - computability theoretic questions arise in many guises. The CiE community, meeting this year for the first time in Bucharest, carries forward the search for coherence, depth and new thinking across this rich and vital field of research.

In line with other conferences in this series, CiE 2015 has a broad scope and provides a forum for the discussion of theoretical and practical issues in Computability with an emphasis on new paradigms of computation and the development of their mathematical theory.

We invite everyone who is interested in the topi'cs and program of CiE 2015 to register for the conference. Details on the program of the conference are given below. The details regarding the registration procedure are given here.


The papers accepted for CiE 2015 can be seen here.

The CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS will be published by LNCS, Springer Verlag, and there will be a best student paper award presented to the best paper written solely by students, sponsored by Springer.

The speakers of the special sessions are listed here.


While computer science conferences usually host formal presentations based on papers published in a proceedings volume, 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. So, continuing the tradition of past CiE conferences, CiE 2015 hosts a series of informal presentations, in addition to the presentations based on the papers in the LNCS proceedings volume. These will be soon published on the CiE 2015 website.


CiE 2015 has received funding from the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS) that allows students who are members of ASL or EATCS and want to attend CiE 2015 to apply for travel funds or a reduction of the early registration fee. Applications for EATCS travel grants have to be sent to prior to the early registration deadline, May 20, 2015.
