                    FINAL  CALL  FOR  PAPERS

                   Deadline: FEBRUARY 9, 2006

Computability in Europe 2006 (CiE 2006) is the second of a new
conference series which serves as an interdisciplinary forum for
researchers into all aspects of computability and the foundations
of computer science.  The conference series in general welcomes
contributions involving theoretical approaches to practical
computational problems in many different areas.  This includes
(but is not limited to) neural networks, quantum computation,
natural computation, molecular computation, bioinformatics,
physics of computations, computational learning, proof theory,
classical computability, computable structures, proof complexity,
constructive mathematics, hypercomputers, analogue computers,
algorithms, and philosophy of computation.

CiE 2006 will have a special focus on logical approaches to
computational barriers, which include the practical and feasible
barriers, e.g., centred around the P vs. NP problem;  the
computable barriers connected to models of computers and
programming languages; and the hypercomputable barriers related
to physical systems (like quantum and analog computation, neural
nets, molecular computation).

                         GOEDEL CENTENARY

CiE 2006 also celebrates the Goedel Centenary:  We have two plenary
speakers related to Kurt Goedel, Martin Davis and John W Dawson,
the latter giving a Special Address on Kurt Goedel sponsored by the
Kurt Goedel Society, and we will have a Special Session: "Goedel
Centenary: His Legacy for Computability".

Here is a list of Tutorial and Invited Plenary Speakers, and of
names of Special Sessions:

    Samuel R. Buss (San Diego, CA)
    Julia Kempe (Paris)

Invited Speakers:
    Jan Bergstra (Amsterdam)
    Luca Cardelli (Microsoft Cambridge)
    Martin Davis (New York, NY)
    John W Dawson (York, PA) (Special Address on Kurt Goedel)
    Jan Krajicek (Prague)
    Elvira Mayordomo Camara (Zaragoza)
    Istvan Nemeti (Budapest)
    Helmut Schwichtenberg (Munich)
    Andreas Weiermann (Utrecht)

Special Sessions:
    Proofs and Computation
    Computable Analysis
    Challenges in Complexity
    Foundations of Programming
    Mathematical Models of Computers and Hypercomputers
    Goedel Centenary: His Legacy for Computability

The Programme Committee cordially invites all researchers
(European and non-European) in the area of Computability Theory
to submit their papers (in PDF-format, max 10 pages) for
presentation at CiE 2006.  We particularly invite papers that
build bridges between different parts of the research community.
Since women are underrepresented in mathematics and computer
science, we emphatically encourage submissions by female authors.

The proceedings will be published within Springer's LNCS series.

To submit a paper and for more information on the submission
process, go to our web site http://www.cs.swansea.ac.uk/cie06/

Important dates:

Submission Deadline:          February 9th, 2006.
Notification of Authors:        March 10rd, 2006.
Deadline for Final Version:     March 31th, 2006.

(Please note that the dates have changed.)
