Computability in Europe provides the largest international conference dealing with the full spectrum of computability-related research.

CiE 2010 in the Azores is the sixth conference of the Series, held in a geographically unique and dramatic location, Europe's most Westerly outpost. The theme of CiE 2010 - "Programs, Proofs, Processes" - points to the usual CiE synergy of Computer Science, Mathematics and Logic, with important computability-theoretic connections to science and the real universe.

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

Formal systems, attendant proofs, and the possibility of their computer generation and manipulation (for instance, into programs) have been changing a whole spectrum of disciplines. The conference will address not only the more established lines of research of Computational Complexity and the interplay between Proofs and Computation, but also novel views that rely on physical and biological processes and models to find new ways of tackling computations and improving their efficiency.

Local Information

The conference will be held at the University of Azores, which is located in the city of Ponta Delgada, in São Miguel Island, a few minutes walking distance from the historical city centre. The international airport of São Miguel (Aeroporto João Paulo II) is also in Ponta Delgada, just 3km away from the University. It has daily flights to the other islands and to the Portuguese mainland (Lisbon). It also provides frequent non-stop flights to Oporto, to several European cities (Frankfurt, Madrid, London, Paris, Amsterdam and Zürich) and to two North American cities (Boston and Toronto). There are several hotels and restaurants near the University.
