CiE 2023 is the 19th 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), Kiel (2018), Durham (2019), Salerno (2020, virtually), Ghent (2021, virtually), and Swansea (2022).

We are going to have 6 special sessions.
The topics of the special sessions will be announced soon.


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 PROGRAM 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 2023 at


Papers submitted to the conference proceedings should represent original work, not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference with formal proceedings.
The Program Committee will rigorously review and select submitted papers. Accepted papers will be published as a proceedings volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series from Springer-Verlag.

Papers to be considered in the conferences proceedings 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.


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 long; 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 Informal presentations will not be published in the LNCS conference proceedings.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 2023 may appear or may have appeared in other conferences with formal proceedings and/or in journals.


Contributed papers will be selected from submissions received by the PROGRAM COMMITTEE consisting of:

  • Nikolay Bazhenov (Novosibirsk State University)
  • Manuel Bodirsky (TU Dresden)
  • Vasco Brattka (Munich)
  • Liesbeth De Mol (University of Lille)

We are very happy to announce that within the framework of the Women in Computability program, we are able to offer some grants for junior women researchers who want to participate in CiE 2023. Applications for this grant should be sent to Liesbeth de Mol,, before May 15, 2023 and include a short cv (at most 2 pages) and contact information for an academic reference. Preference will be given to junior women researchers who are presenting a paper (including informal presentations) at CiE 2023.

Call for Nominations for 2023 S. Barry Cooper Prize

S. Barry Cooper Prize

The S. Barry Cooper Prize is awarded to a researcher who has contributed to a broad understanding and foundational study of computability by outstanding results, by seminal and lasting theory building, by exceptional service to the research communities involved, or by a combination of these. This award is presented every two to three years, with the presentation taking place at the International Conference Computability in Europe (CiE).

The Prize is named in honor of S. Barry Cooper, the founding President of the Association Computability, in recognition of his vision of the fundamental concept of computability that brought together several different research communities. The awardee shall be invited to the next annual CiE conference to give an invited talk and will be presented with an award plaque on this occasion.

Nominations and Eligibility

Nominations may be made by any member of the scientific community and any such member can be nominated. Nomination letters can have multiple signatories and should provide a motivation for awarding the prize to the nominee, precisely stating their outstanding results, their seminal and lasting theory building, and/or their exceptional service to the research communities involved.

Nominations for the award should be submitted by email to the Award Committee Chair

Anuj Dawar (University of Cambridge)

Any emails and related messages should have the subject line starting with “S. Barry Cooper Prize 2023”.

To be considered, nominations for the 2023 Prize must be received by 31 January, 2023.

A nomination package should include:

1. A statement of motivation for awarding the prize to the nominee describing the nominee’s outstanding results, their seminal and lasting theory building and/or exceptional service to the research communities, as the case may be. These should be supported by at least one of

– A list of the most important publications, accompanied by a brief summary of the technical content of the papers and a brief explanation of their significance. Where possible, this should include pointers to online versions of the publications.

– A statement explaining the role played and the exceptional services rendered by the nominee, in the research communities involved in computability and related areas.

2. A support letter or letters signed by at least two members of the scientific community. The nomination package must be in English, but it may include reference to publications in other languages.

Selection Process

The Award Committee is solely responsible for the selection of the winner of the award. All matters relating to the selection process that are not specified here are left to the discretion of the Award Committee, whose decision will be final.
