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 2020 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.
