The Journal of the Association Computability in Europe

Aims and Scope

Computability is the journal of the Association Computability in Europe (CiE) and it is published by IOS Press in Amsterdam.

The journal Computability is a peer reviewed international journal that is devoted to publishing original research of highest quality, which is centered around the topic of computability.

The subject is understood from a multidisciplinary perspective, recapturing the spirit of Alan Turing (1912-1954) by linking theoretical and real-world concerns from computer science, mathematics, biology, physics, computational neuroscience, history and the philosophy of computing.

Submission Guidelines

The journal Computability invites submission of full papers of highest quality on all research topics related to computability.

Computability accepts only submissions of original research papers that have not been published previously and that are not currently submitted elsewhere. Full versions of papers that have already been published in conference proceedings are eligible only if the conference version is clearly cited and the full version enhances the conference version significantly.

Authors are requested to submit PDF manuscripts electronically via the online submission system. Authors can indicate non-binding wishes regarding Editorial Board Members who should handle their submission. Final versions of accepted papers have to be prepared using the journal style file and they need to be submitted together with all source files.

Authors submitting a manuscript do so on the understanding that they have read and agreed to the terms of the IOS Press Author Copyright Agreement and that all persons listed as authors have given their approval for the submission of the paper.


CiE Members without institutional access to Computability can read the online version via their CiE user account and password.
