CiE 2019 is the 15th 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), Ponta Delgada (2010), Sofia (2011), Cambridge (2012), Milan (2013), Budapest (2014), Bucharest (2015), Paris (2016), Turku (2017) and Kiel (2018).

The CiE conferences serve as an interdisciplinary forum for research in all aspects of computability, foundations of computer science, logic, and theoretical computer science, as well as the interplay of these areas with practical issues in computer science and with other disciplines such as biology, mathematics, philosophy, or physics.

THE PROGRAMME COMMITTEE cordially invites all researchers (European and non-European) to submit their papers in all areas related to the above for presentation at the conference and inclusion in the proceedings of CiE 2019 at .

Papers must be submitted in PDF format, using the LNCS style (available at and must have a maximum of 12 pages, including references but excluding a possible appendix in which one can include proofs and other additional material. Papers building bridges between different parts of the research community are particularly welcome.

The CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS will be published by LNCS, Springer Verlag.


Continuing the tradition of past CiE conferences, we invite researchers to present informal presentations of their recent work. A proposal for an informal presentation must be submitted via EasyChair (, using the LNCS style file (available at and be 1 page; a brief description of the results suffices and an abstract is not required. Informal presentations will not be published in the LNCS conference proceedings. Results presented as informal presentations at CiE 2019 may appear or may have appeared in other conferences with formal proceedings and/or in journals.


We are very happy to announce that within the framework of the Women in Computability programme, we are able to offer some grants of up to 250 EUR for junior female researchers who want to participate in CiE 2019. Applications for this grant should be sent to Liesbeth De Mol,, before 15 May 2019 and include a short cv (at most 2 pages) and contact information for an academic reference. Preference will be given to junior female researchers who are presenting a paper (including informal presentations) at CiE 2019.
