----------------------------------------------------------------------------

CiE 2009 is the fifth in a series of conferences organised 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 took place in
Amsterdam (2005), Swansea (2006), Siena (2007) and Athens (2008).

TUTORIALS: Pavel Pudlak, Luca Trevisan.

INVITED SPEAKERS: Manindra Agrawal, Jeremy Avigad, Phokion Kolaitis,
Peter Koepke, Andrea Sorbi, Vijay Vazirani.

SPECIAL SESSIONS on Algorithmic Randomness (E. Mayordomo, W. Merkle),
Computational Model Theory (J. Knight, A. Morozov), Computation in
Biological Systems - Theory and Practice (A. Carbone, E. Csuhaj-Varju),
Optimization and Approximation (M. Halldorsson, G. Reinelt), Philosophical
and Mathematical Aspects of Hypercomputation (J. Ladyman, P. Welch),
Relative Computability (R. Downey, A. Soskova)

CiE 2009 has a broad scope and bridges the gap from the theoretical
methods of mathematical and meta-mathematical flavour to the applied and
industrial questions of computational practice. The conference aims to
bring together researchers who want to explore the historical and
philosophical aspects of the field.

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 Elsevier Foundation is supporting the CiE conference series
in the programme "Increasing representation of female researchers in the
computability community". This programme will allow us to fund child-care
support, a mentoring system for young female researchers, and also a small
number of grants for female researchers, covering their registration fees.

The dates around the submission process are as follows:

Submission Deadline: 20 January 2009
Notification of Authors: 16 March 2009
