Due to the pandemic in Europe and in the rest of the world, this year the Conference Computability in Europe will take place virtually in Salerno from June 29 to July 3. I wish to thank the Council and the organizers of the CiE conference "Beyond the Horizon of Computability " for their efforts in managing to run the main events related to Association in these hard times.

The past editions of the CiE conferences have always been characterized for a special atmosphere of interdisciplinary interaction between the different souls of the Association, reflecting the different areas of Computability. This fruitful mix can be felt particularly during the Special sessions, the tutorials and the invited talks for the general audience, while parallel sessions and contributed talks focus on specific interests and expertise.

The 2020 edition of CiE in Salerno will be unique and memorable: not only it will experiment with new modalities of interaction between the attendees, but it will also be the first edition to celebrate the Barry Cooper Prize, an event that will characterize many more CiE Conferences to come. This edition is also special for me personally: after Siena (2007) and Milan (2013), the 2020 edition in Salerno, is the third taking place in one of the most beautiful areas in Italy.
