******************************************************************* FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS: CiE 2014: Language, Life, Limits Budapest, Hungary June 23 - 27, 2014 http://cie2014.inf.elte.hu IMPORTANT DATES: Submission Deadline for LNCS: 10 January 2014 Notification of authors: 3 March 2014 Deadline for final revisions: 31 March 2014 CiE 2014 is the tenth 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), Ponte Dalgada (2010), Sofia (2011), Cambridge (2012), and Milan (2013). The motto of CiE 2014 "Language, Life, Limits" intends to put a special focus on relations between computational linguistics, natural and biological computing, and more traditional fields of computability theory. This is to be understood in its broadest sense including computational aspects of problems in linguistics, studying models of computation and algorithms inspired by physical and biological approaches as well as exhibiting limits (and non-limits) of computability when considering different models of computation arising from such approaches. As with previous CiE conferences the allover glueing perspective is to strengthen the mutual benefits of analyzing traditional and new computational paradigms in their corresponding frameworks both with respect to practical applications and a deeper theoretical understanding.
