  Computability in Europe 2007: Computation and Logic in the Real World
                          University of Siena
                         Siena, 18-23 June 2007

                         CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

CiE 2007 will address various aspects of the ways computability and 
theoretical computer science enable scientists and philosophers to deal 
with mathematical and real world issues, ranging through problems related 
to logic, mathematics, physical processes, natural computing, real 
computation and learning theory. At the same time it will focus on 
different ways in which computability emerges from the real world, and 
how this affects our way of thinking about everyday computational issues.

The CiE conference series has become a primary focus for basic and 
applied research into a full range of computability related issues, 
and CiE is the largest such international meeting.

DEADLINE FOR EARLY REGISTRATION: May 18, 2007

DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING INFORMAL PRESENTATIONS: April 27, 2007

All presenters of informal presentations, are eligible to be invited to 
submit a full journal version of their talk to one of the post-conference 
publications - see:

LOCATION

Siena is one of Italy's best preserved medieval towns, located in the 
heart of Tuscany. Siena, built on three hills and surrounded by well 
preserved walls, is filled with fine examples of Gothic architecture and 
has one of the world's most unique piazzas - il Campo. The world-famous 
Palio, which takes place in the Campo, is an important part of Sienese 
identity, history and culture.

CiE 2007 takes place just 6 days before the start of the Palio on 
29 June, 2007. Siena makes an excellent base for other excursions in 
Tuscany, as it is not far from charming towns such as San Gimignano, 
Pienza, and towns world famous for wine, such as Montalcino and 
Montepulciano. Florence and Pisa too are within easy reach.
