Call For Papers

HaPoC 3: Third International Conference for the History and Philosophy
of Computing
8 -- 11 October, 2015, Pisa

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).

We cordially invite researchers working in a field relevant to the
topics of the conference to submit a short abstract of approximately 200
words and an extended abstract of at most a 1000 words (references
included) to www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hapoc2015<http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hapoc2015>

Abstracts must be written in English and anonymised. Please note that
the format of uploaded files must be either .pdf or .doc. In order to
access the submission page, an EasyChair account will be required.
Please notice that what is called “abstract” in the EasyChair “Title,
Abstract and Other Information” section corresponds to the short
abstract of this call, and what is called “paper” in the EasyChair
“Upload Paper” section corresponds to the extended abstract of this call.

Please check out the website of HaPoC 2015 for more information on the
conference at http://hapoc2015.sciencesconf.org<http://hapoc2015.sciencesconf.org/>

A post-proceedings volume is going to appear in the IFIP Advances in
Information and Communication Technology series, published by Springer.

Submission deadline: June 19, 2015
Notification of acceptance: July 19, 2015

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<http://www.internetfestival.it/>)
