Final Call For Papers --- Deadline Extension and Abstracts of Invited Talks
HaPoC 3: Third International Conference for the History and Philosophy 
of Computing
8 -- 11 October, 2015, Pisa
hapoc2015.di.unipi.it <http://hapoc2015.di.unipi.it/>

The DHST commission for the history and philosophy of computing 
(www.hapoc.org <http://www.hapoc.org/>) is happy to announce the third 
HAPOC conference. The series aims at creating an interdisciplinary focus 
on computing, stimulating a dialogue between the historical and 
philosophical viewpoints. To this end, the conference hopes to bring 
together researchers interested in the historical developments of 
computing, as well as those reflecting on the sociological and 
philosophical issues springing from the rise and ubiquity of computing 
machines in the contemporary landscape. In the past editions, the 
conference has successfully presented a variety of voices, contributing 
to the creation of a fruitful dialogue between researchers with 
different backgrounds and sensibilities.

For HaPoC 2015 we welcome contributions from historians and philosophers 
of computing as well as from philosophically aware computer scientists 
and mathematicians. Topics include but are not limited to
• History and Philosophy of Computation (interpretation of the 
Church-Turing thesis; models of computation; logical/mathematical 
foundations of computer science; information theory...)
• History and Philosophy of Programming (classes of programming 
languages; philosophical status of programming...)
• History and Philosophy of the Computer (from calculating machines to 
the future of the computer; user interfaces; abstract architectures...)
• History and Epistemology of the use of Computing in the sciences 
(simulation vs. modelisation; computer-assisted proofs; linguistics...)
• Computing and the Arts: historical and conceptual issues (temporality 
in digital art; narration in interactive art work...)
• Social, ethical and pedagogical aspects of Computing (pedagogy of 
computer science; algorithms and copyright; internet, culture, society...)

Our invited speakers are Nicola Angius (Università di Sassari, IT), 
Lenore Blum (Carnagie Mellon University, USA), David Allan Grier (IEEE & 
George Washington University, USA), Furio Honsell (Università di Udine, 
IT), Pierre Mounier-Kuhn (CNRS & Université Paris-Sorbonne, F), and 
Franck Varenne (Université de Rouen, F).

***The abstracts of the invited talks are now available at 
hapoc2015.di.unipi.it/invited <http://hapoc2015.di.unipi.it/invited>***

topics of the conference to submit a short abstract of approximately 200 
words and an extended abstract of at most a 1000 words (references

The 2015 conference is located in Pisa, the cradle of Italian computer 
science: here the first Italian computers were designed in the 
mid-Fifties and the first Master course in informatics was established 
in 1969. The Museum of Computing Machinery, part of the University of 
Pisa, shows some artefacts from the early days of Italian CS, as well a 
selection of personal computing machines. Besides its artistic 
attractions, among them the world-famous leaning tower, during the days 
of the conference Pisa will host the Internet Festival, devoted to all 
the aspects of the net (www.internetfestival.it
