|Call for Informal Presentations
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-produced proceedings volumes is not able
to accommodate this form of scientific communication.
Continuing the tradition established at CiE 2005 in Amsterdam,
and at CiE 2006 in Swansea, the 2007 conference in Siena endeavours
to get the best of both worlds.
In addition to the formal presentations based
on our projected LNCS proceedings volume, we invite
researchers to present informal presentations. For this, please send us
a brief description of your talk
(up to and approaching one page in length) before
27 April 2007
Please submit your abstract via the online
If you submit an informal presentation, you will get an e-mail
with a decision on acceptance or rejection within two weeks of your
submission. Following acceptance, you will be asked to email
us, before 27 April, a final version of your abstract (both
latex and pdf files).
Let us add that there will be
special issues of journals for CiE 2007. All speakers, including the speakers
of informal presentations, are eligible to be invited to
submit a full journal version of their talk to
one of the post-conference publications.
