Continuity, Computability, Constructivity – From Logic to Algorithms (CCC 2015)
Schloss Aspenstein, Kochel am See, near Munich, 14-18 September 2015
CCC is a conference series bringing together researchers from real
analysis, computability theory, and constructive mathematics. The overall aim
is to apply logical methods in these disciplines to provide a sound
foundation for obtaining exact and provably correct algorithms for
computations with real numbers and related analytical data, which are of
increasing importance in safety critical applications and scientific
Previous conferences have been held in Cologne CCC 2009, Trier CCC 2012, Gregynog/Swansea CCC 2013, and Ljubljana CCC2014. The conference series is linked to the EU-funded FP7-research project COMPUTAL (Computable analysis - theoretical and applied aspects) which constitutes a research network between Europe, Russia, South-Africa,and Japan. This conference is the forth COMPUTAL event, but is open to all researchers in the area.
The conference specifically invites contributions in the areas of exact real number computation, effective topology, Scott's domain theory, Weihrauch's type two theory of effectivity, category-theoretic approaches to computation on infinite data, hierarchies of unsolvability, and related areas.

The price per night, including meals and coffee breaks is 87.50 Euros, i.e. Monday to Friday (without conference dinner) will make: 356 Euros, to be paid in advance. The additional night from Sunday to Monday is 56 Euros, i.e. the standard price will be 412.00 Euros. [Note that there is no dinner on Sunday evening, but there are several restaurants in the village.] There will be in addition a small conference fee of 20/30 Euros.
Registration - finalize by 13. July please- is done by an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please register asap by giving affiliation, arrival and departure date, as well as any dietary requirements. As the number of rooms at Schloss Aspenstein is limited, pre-registration is welcome. Reimbursement in case of cancellation: 50% until 13 August, 25% after that date.
- Social Programme:
Excursion: (presumably on Wednesday afternoon, weather dependent) on the mountain Herzogstand. It can be reached by a cable car, and from there it is a 45 mins walk to the top. Plan B is a visit to the Franz Marc Museum in Kochel. (This is the plan in case it is raining, however we recommend to have a visit there at some point in any case.)
Social Dinner: Thursday evening in the restaurant Grauer Bär in Kochel. Planned is at the moment dinner a la carte.
Note that on Saturday, 19 September 2015, the Octoberfest (Munich Bierfestival) starts! It might be interesting for the one or other to visit the Octoberfest, also note that because of the Otoberfest it might be difficult get accommodation in Munich and also Kochel for the weekend, therefore early planning is important.
- Travel and Arrival:
Kochel am See can be reached via train in 1 hour from Munich Central train station. (There is a train each hour, but some trains require to change in Tutzing. Please see www.bahn.de for a schedule.)
A return train ticket from Munich Airport to Kochel kosts 38 Euro (Sparpreis, valid after 9am) or 45 Euro (standard price) and can be booked via www.bahn.de (no registration needed). You can also buy a ticket at the airport (ticket machine, or office (the latter might be closed open in the evenings)). If you arrive in group, we recommend that you use the Bayernticket (28 Euro for two people, 33 for three people, valid one day long.) Note: You need to change at Munich Hauptbahnhof and presumably also in Tutzing.
