CALL FOR PAPERS: CiE 2013: The Nature of Computation Milan, Italy July 1 - 5, 2013 http://cie2013.disco.unimib.it IMPORTANT DATES: Submission Deadline for LNCS: 20 January 2013 Notification of authors: 4 March 2013 Deadline for final revisions: 1 April 2013 CiE 2013 is the ninth conference 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 have taken place in Amsterdam (2005), Swansea (2006), Siena (2007), Athens (2008), Heidelberg (2009), Ponte Dalgada (2010), Sofia (2011) and Cambridge (2012). The Nature of Computation is meant to emphasize the special focus of CIE13 on the unexpected and strong changes that studies on Nature have brought in several areas of mathematics, physics, and computer science. Starting from Alan Turing, research on Nature with a computational perspective has produced novel contributions, giving rise even to new disciplines. Two complementary research perspectives pervade the Nature of Computation theme. One is focused on the understanding of new computational paradigms inspired by the processes occurring in the biological world, while focusing on a deeper and modern understanding of the theory of computation. The other perspective is on our understanding of how computations really occur in Nature, on how we can interact with those computations, and on their applications. CiE 2013 conference topics include, but not exclusively: * Admissible sets * Algorithms * Analog computation * Artificial intelligence * Automata theory * Bioinformatics * Classical computability and degree structures * Cognitive science and modelling * Complexity classes * Computability theoretic aspects of programs * Computable analysis and real computation * Computable structures and models * Computational and proof complexity * Computational biology * Computational creativity * Computational learning and complexity * Computational linguistics * Concurrency and distributed computation * Constructive mathematics * Cryptographic complexity * Decidability of theories * Derandomization * DNA computing * Domain theory and computability * Dynamical systems and computational models * Effective descriptive set theory * Emerging and Non-standard Models of Computation * Finite model theory * Formal aspects of program analysis * Formal methods * Foundations of computer science * Games * Generalized recursion theory * History of computation * Hybrid systems * Higher type computability * Hypercomputational models * Infinite time Turing machines * Kolmogorov complexity * Lambda and combinatory calculi * L-systems and membrane computation * Machine learning * Mathematical models of emergence * Molecular computation * Morphogenesis and developmental biology * Multi-agent systems * Natural Computation * Neural nets and connectionist models * Philosophy of science and computation * Physics and computability * Probabilistic systems * Process algebras and concurrent systems * Programming language semantics * Proof mining and applications * Proof theory and computability * Proof complexity * Quantum computing and complexity * Randomness * Reducibilities and relative computation * Relativistic computation * Reverse mathematics * Semantics and logic of computation * Swarm intelligence and self-organisation * Type systems and type theory * Uncertain Reasoning * Weak systems of arithmetic and applications We particularly welcome submissions in emergent areas, such as bioinformatics and natural computation, where they have a basic connection with computability. Contributed papers will be selected from submissions received by the PROGRAM COMMITTEE consisting of: * Gerard Alberts (Amsterdam) * Luís Antunes (Porto) * Arnold Beckmann (Swansea) * Laurent Bienvenu (Paris) * Paola Bonizzoni (Milan, co-chair) * Vasco Brattka (Munich and Cape Town, co-chair) * Cameron Buckner (Houston TX) * Bruno Codenotti (Pisa) * Stephen Cook (Toronto ON) * Barry Cooper (Leeds) * Ann Copestake (Cambridge) * Erzsébet Csuhaj-Varjú (Budapest) * Anuj Dawar (Cambridge) * Gianluca Della Vedova (Milan) * Liesbeth De Mol (Gent) * Jérôme Durand-Lose (Orléans) * Viv Kendon (Leeds) * Bjørn Kjos-Hanssen (Honolulu, HI) * Antonina Kolokolova (St. John¹s NF) * Benedikt Löwe (Amsterdam) * Giancarlo Mauri (Milan) * Rolf Niedermeier (Berlin) * Geoffrey Pullum (Edinburgh) * Nicole Schweikardt (Frankfurt) * Sonja Smets (Amsterdam) * Susan Stepney (York) * S. P. Suresh (Chennai) * Peter van Emde Boas (Amsterdam) The PROGRAMME COMMITTEE cordially invites all researchers (European and non-European) in computability related areas to submit their papers (in PDF format, max 10 pages using the LNCS style) for presentation at CiE 2013. The submission site https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cie2013 is open. We particularly invite papers that build bridges between different parts of the research community. The CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS will be published by LNCS, Springer Verlag.
