Dear list members, 
We hope you would be interested to participate in the HAPOC Symposium at ICHST 2025 held in New Zealand. 

Call for Papers for participation at ICHST 2025 in New Zealand 

HAPOC Symposium “The Computer in Motion”

The DHST Commission for the History and Philosophy of Computing (HAPOC) is inviting proposals for participation in the HAPOC symposium to be held as part of ICHST 2025 conference (https://www.ichst2025.org/). We invite scholars to present their research on subjects that explore computers and computing from historical perspectives within the framework of the congress theme “Peoples, Places, Exchanges, and Circulation”. Computers have always been on the move between disciplines, nations, communities, cultures, and social spheres. With each move they adapt to the milieu, and the milieu adapts to them. The symposium focuses on all forms of computers in motion, from the most abstract to the most material, from global to locally situated.

Contributions could address, but are not limited to the following topics:

Metadisciplinary ambitions of computerisation; roots and models of digital humanities; the computational turn in natural sciences and humanities.

Epistemics, history, and politics of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and language models.

Materiality of data exchange, data sharing and data access, as well as standards and protocols.

Collaboration and/or its failure between computer experts, international circulation of ideas and appropriation of concepts and practices between disciplines; politics of computing as well as regimes of secrecy, censorship, spying, and proprietary ownership that prevent circulation.

Local, national, and international computer networks; global communication infrastructures.

Visioners, founding figures, and hidden figures of computing; hackers, crackers, gamers, and game-changing technologies.

Submission Guidelines:

If you want to be included in the HAPOC symposium as part of ICHST 2025 conference at the University of Otago’s Dunedin campus in New Zealand:

The symposium aims at a diversified line-up, with a balance of age, gender, and geographic backgrounds. Proposals from Early-Career Researchers are particularly welcome.
