Dear all,

I hope the following CfP might be of interest to some of you,

my very best wishes,

Third symposium for History and Philosophy of Programming
June 25, 2016
CNAM, Paris, France

/An affiliated event of CiE 2016 
<https://lipn.univ-paris13.fr/CIE2016/>, Paris/

We are happy to announce the third Symposium for the History and 
Philosophy of Programming. This symposium follows the first 
<http://www.computing-conference.ugent.be/hapop12> and second 
<http://www.computing-conference.ugent.be/hapop2> editions which were 
organized in 2012 and 2014 respectively. It is supported by the 
DHST/DLMPS Commission on the History and Philosophy of Computing 
<www.hapoc.org> and the CNAM <http://www.cnam.fr/>.

One major challenge throughout the history of programming is the 
development of an interface between humans, software and hardware. It 
has been the task of the so-called operating system to: maintain a file 
system; regulate access to resources; synchronize operations; etc. 
Today, Operating Systems are usually equipped with Graphical User 
interfaces (GUI) designed to give the "user" a "friendly" experience 
thus hiding  – and sometimes even rendering inaccessible – much of the 
underlying structure and features of the computing machinery. In which 
way is this changing our relation to machines and what the unintended 
epistemic consequences are, is still to be assessed.

The aim of the current symposium is to offer an opportunity for 
historical and philosophical reflection on operating systems and the 
programs they coordinate. Our approach is interdisciplinarity and 
openness towards different fields relevant to HaPoC. We were and are 
strongly convinced that such trans- and interdisciplinarity is necessary 
if one wants to reflect on a discipline such as computer science with 
its multidimensional nature. The current symposium will be organized in 
a similar manner and invites researchers coming from a diversity of 
backgrounds, including historians, philosophers, logicians and computer 
scientists who want to engage with topics relevant to the history and 
philosophy of programming and more specifically that of operating systems.

Topics of the symposium include but are not restricted to historical and 
philosophical reflections on:

  •    Origin, evolution and future of OSs
  •    Design and Epistemology of User Interfaces
  •    Principles of Data Access, Control and Sharing, especially in 
relation to OSs (e.g. the Bell-La Padula model)
  •    Privacy and Security in OSs
  •    Batch processing and time sharing systems
  •    Models, problems and techniques of concurrency, parallelism and 
distributed systems
  •    Open source vs corporate software
  •    Programming paradigms and techniques (e.g. pair-programming)


We cordially invite researchers working in a field relevant to the main 
topics of the symposium to submit an abstract of 500 words to:


Abstracts must be written in English. Please note that the format of 
uploaded files must be .pdf or .doc.  

In order to access the submission page, the creation of 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.


Submission deadline: March 31, 2016
Notification of acceptance: April 22, 2016
