Awards and Grants

Springer-Verlag has graciously funded two awards that will be given during the CiE 2013 conference.

Best student paper

This prize will be awarded for the best student paper presented at CiE 2013, as judged by the Program Committee. A prize of €500 will be given to the author(s) of the best student-authored paper (or split between more than one paper if there is a tie).

A paper is eligible if all of its authors are full-time students at the time of submission. In order to be considered, a paper has to be submitted in the category ‘Regular paper (eligible for best student paper award)’ on EasyChair.

Best paper on Natural Computing

A copy of the four volumes of the Handbook of Natural Computing (ACM Computing Review) is the prize that will be awarded to the best paper on Natural Computing, as judged by the Program Committee.

A paper is eligible if its main topic falls within the scope of Natural Computing, roughly defined as the set of fields studied in the above handbook. The Program Committee will judge if a paper falls within the Natural Computing scope. The authors of a paper eligible for the award must indicate this in the submission notes.

Grants

Elsevier

Under the name Elsevier Women in Computability (WiC), the publisher Elsevier (more precisely, the journals “Annals of Pure and Applied Logic” and “Theoretical Computer Science”) is continuing the programme “Increasing representation of female researchers in the computability community” originally funded by the Elsevier Foundation (2008-2010).

This programme will finance WiC workshop at CiE 2013 with the traditional WiC dinner for workshop participants afterwards and offer up to four grants with modest support (up to 200 EUR) for junior female researchers to attend CiE 2013. Every registered junior female researcher is eligible to apply. Preference will be given to researchers who present a paper (contributed paper or informal talk).

Applications should contain a short CV (max 1 page) and contact information for an academic reference. The application should be sent to Mariya Soskova <msoskova@gmail.com> before the deadline of April 1, 2013.
