COMPUTABILITY IN EUROPE
EU Future and Emerging Technologies Open Scheme (FET-OPEN)
CiE members seeking participation in a future
FET Open Call proposal:
(andrej.brodnik @ upr.si) would be
interested to participate in the call. Topic would be data structures
and particular novel models of computation (e.g. RAMBO).
Giovanni Di Crescenzo
giovanni @ research.telcordia.com) would be
interested in interacting with CiE members on research proposals
in the following topics: cryptography, complexity-based cryptography and
interactive proof systems; also, in facilitating interactions among CiE
members and colleagues in his company's research center in Poland on the same
topics and more (i.e., distributed computing, algorithms, etc.)
Michael Huber (michael.huber @ uni-tuebingen.de) would
also be interested in collaborating with other CiE members, eg on a FET
(lfa @ dcc.fc.up.pt)
would also be interested in a future FET or other funding proposal. He
has been working on Kolmogorov Complexity (new information measures),
theoretical cryptography and generally computational complexity.

He is particularly interested in new (nonclassical) models of computation
(including neural networks).
would like to collaborate with other CiE members in a FET or any other
funding proposal. His core research topic has been that of phase transitions
optimization problems. He is generally interested in discrete models of
as well as computational complexity. A list of his publications can be seen

gabrielistrate @ acm.org.
CiE members seeking participants in a future
FET Open Call proposal:
(m.stannett @ dcs.shef.ac.uk), who
organises the Hypercomputation
Research Network and its associated activities funded
by the HyperNet research project, is
assembling a list of potential collaborators for a
proposal for a FET research network on

European Science Foundation (ESF)
European Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research -
COST invites proposals for Actions contributing to the scientific,
technological, economic, cultural or societal development of Europe.
Developing stronger links amongst European researchers is crucial to building
the European Research Area (ERA). COST stimulates new, innovative,
interdisciplinary and broad research networks in Europe. COST activities are
carried out by research teams to strengthen the foundations for building
scientific excellence in Europe. Proposers may wish to contact
their national COST Coordinator (CNC) for
information and guidance.
Next collection date for Preliminary Proposals: 27 March 2009, 17:00 (Brussels time).
ESF Research Networking Programmes - 2008 Call closed, but another call
expected autumn 2009.
- And EUROCORES (European Collaborative Research)
which enables researchers to work in joint research projects with
colleagues in other European countries and beyond, whilst the
funding remains national. The EUROCORES Programmes within the
scheme address research questions which require cooperation
crossing national borders and disciplinary boundaries.
2009 should see a new call for outline proposals for EUROCORES themes.
