This is an invitation to attend the 3rd International Conference on
the History and Philosophy of Computing (HaPoC 2015). The conference
brings together researchers interested in the historical developments
of computers and their sciences, as well as those reflecting on the
sociological and philosophical issues springing from the rise and ubiquity
of computing machines in the contemporary landscape.  The conference is
composed of 30 research presentations, with no parallels sessions, and 6
invited talks from renowned experts in the relevant fields.

The conference will take place 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 (Museo degli Strumenti per
il Calcolo), 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
