Call for Participation
Symposium on the History and Philosophy of Programming
5-6 July 2012


co-located with AISB/IACAP World Congress 2012 - Alan Turing 2012 
2-6 July 2012


As part of the AISB/IACAP World Congress programme, the Centre for Logic
and Philosophy of Science at Ghent University organizes a one day
Symposium on the History and Philosophy of Programming. On the Occasion
of the Turing Centennial, from 2-6 July 2012, the AISB (The Society for
the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour) and
the IACAP (The International Association for Computing and Philosophy)
merge their annual symposia/conferences to the AISB/IACAP World
Congress. The Congress serves both as the year's AISB Convention and the
year's IACAP conference. The Congress has been inspired by a desire to
honour Alan Turing, and by the broad and deep significance of Turing's
work to AI, to the philosophical ramifications of computing, and to
philosophy and computing more generally. The Congress is one of the
events forming the Alan Turing Year
