There is a remarkable difference in conference style between computer science and mathematics conferences. Mathematics conferences allow for informal presentations that are prepared very shortly before the conference and inform the participants about current research and work in progress. The format of computer science conferences with pre-conference proceedings is not able to accommodate this form of scientific communication.

Continuing the tradition of past CiE conferences, this year's CiE conference endeavours to get the best of both worlds. In addition to the formal presentations based on our LNCS proceedings volume, we invite researchers to present informal presentations. For this, please send us a brief description of your talk (between one paragraph and one page) by the DEADLINE:

MAY 15, 2010.

Please submit your abstract electronically, via EasyChair, selecting the category "Informal Presentation".

You will be notified whether your talk has been accepted for informal presentation usually within a week after your submission, so if you intend to apply for ASL Student Travel Awards you should submit your abstract before March 23rd.

Let us remind you that we are planning several post-conference publications, which will contain full articles of selected CiE 2010 presentations, including informal presentations.
