The core of our argument is based on knowing the Halting Problem is noncom- putable. If a solution to some new problem P could be used to solve the Halting Problem, then we know that P is also noncomputable. That is, no algorithm exists that can solve P since if such an algorithm exists it could be used to also solve the Halting Problem which we already know is impossible. The proof technique where we show that a solution for some problem P can be used to solve a different problem Q is known as a reduction. A problem Q is reducible to a problem P if a solution to P could be used to solve Q.

This means that problem Q is no harder than problem P, since a solution to problem Q leads to a solution to problem P. Is it computable or non-computable? Explanation — We show the State Entry Problem is non-computable by showing that it is as hard as the Halting Problem, which we already know is non-computable. State Entry Problem is asking us on given string w if we start from initial state of Turing machine will it reach to a state q.

Now this state entry problem can be converted to halting problem. Halting problem is whether our Turing machine ever halts and state entry problem is asking same thing whether this Turing machine halts at some state q if we give string w as input to the Turing machine M. So the state entry problem is non-computable as we converted it to halting problem which we already know is non-computable problem. So in this way we can prove non-computability.

Plenary talks are in E which is at the front of the Christopher Building the building faces north , next to the main entrance to the department. A reception desk will be located outside the lecture theatre from 8am on Monday 15 July. Some other talks are in E and E in the Higginson Building towards the back of the department. Lunches and refreshments are in the Atrium adjacent to E See the travel information for advice and maps to help you find us. Further information under Sponsors. Papers can have a maximum of 12 pages including references, but excluding a possible appendix containing proofs and other additional material.

Papers building bridges between different parts of the research community are particularly welcome. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Informal Presentations Continuing the tradition of past CiE conferences, we invite researchers to present informal presentations of their recent work. A proposal for an informal presentation must be submitted via EasyChair and must use the LNCS style file available here and be 1 page; a brief description of the results suffices and an abstract is not required.

Informal presentations will not be published in the LNCS conference proceedings. Please be aware that this is a scam operated by a company calling themselves Business Travel Management. You will never receive any unsolicited contact from the organizers of CiE promoting accommodation. Applications for these grants must be made to HaPoC directly, see hapoc.

See aslonline. There are also Women in Computability Travel Grants available. Durham is easy to reach by train or air. There are frequent train services to London about 3 hours and Edinburgh about 2 hours. There are two international airports Newcastle and Durham Tees Valley with good connections to Durham. They offer cheap flight services to several destinations.

Here is further information on travelling to Durham. Here is an annotated map for finding your way in the city: expand the lists in the margin and click on Department of Computer Science to find the building where the meeting takes place.
