Computability in Europe


The Association Computability in Europe (ACiE) is an international organization of mathematicians, logicians, computer scientists, philosophers, theoretical physicists and others interested in new developments in computability and in their underlying significance for the real world. CiE aims to widen understanding and appreciation of the importance of the concepts and techniques of computability theory, and to support the development of a vibrant multi-disciplinary community of researchers focused on computability-related topics. The ACiE positions itself at the interface between applied and fundamental research, prioritising mathematical approaches to computational barriers.

AssociationEdit

The Association Computability in Europe was founded in Athens, Greece in 2008. Its founding president (2008 to 2015) was Professor S. Barry Cooper; its current president is Paola Bonizzoni and its current secretary general is Giuseppe Primiero. The Association is promoting the development, particularly in Europe, of computability-related science, ranging over mathematics, computer science, and applications in various natural and engineering sciences such as physics and biology. This also includes the promotion of the study of philosophy and history of computing as it relates to questions of computability. The ACiE is an international member of the Division for Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology (DLMPST/IUHPST).

Past and Present PresidentsEdit

Current Members of the Association CouncilEdit

Arnold Beckmann, Paola Bonizzoni (President), Olivier Bournez, Merlin Carl, Liesbeth De Mol (Member-at-Large Executive Committee), Gianluca Della Vedova, Daniel Graça, Jarkko Kari, Benedikt Löwe, Johann Makowsky, Florin Manea (Chair of the Conference Series Steering Committee), Barnaby Martin (Member-at-Large Executive Committee), Elvira Mayordomo (Member-at-Large Executive Committee), Dag Normann (Treasurer and Past President), Giuseppe Primiero (Secretary General), Mariya Soskova (Member-at-Large Executive Committee), and Martin Ziegler.[2]

Conference seriesEdit

The Association grew out of the major international conference series Computability in Europe (CiE); the first CiE conference was held in Amsterdam in June 2005. CiE is an interdisciplinary annual conference series promoting the development of computability-related science, ranging over mathematics, computer science, and applications in various natural and engineering sciences such as physics and biology. The conference scope also includes the study of philosophy and history of computing as it relates to questions of computability.[3]

The current chair of the Steering Committee of the conference series is Florin Manea; his predecessors were Benedikt Löwe (2005-2013) and Arnold Beckmann (2013-2016).

Book series & JournalEdit

The ACiE has editorial responsibility for the Springer book series Theory and Applications of Computability[5] and the journal Computability published by IOS Press.[6]
