FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS: History and Philosophy of Computing, 28-31 October, Paris, FRANCE-EXTENDED DEADLINE

HaPoC 2013

Extended Submission Deadline: 15th May 2013 !

28th - 31st October 2013
Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris.
with a special session on "Computing and the Arts" at Ecole Nationale
Superieure des Arts Decoratifs

The 2nd International Conference on the History and Philosophy of
Computing (HaPoC 2013) will take place from the 28th to the 31st of
October 2013 at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris (France).
The birth of the computing and its sciences has often been the topic of
philosophical and historical reflection. The HaPoC-conferences have
decided to bring together the historical and the philosophical
viewpoints. They want to create an environment for a true
interdisciplinary convergence around computer science, reenforcing
research on the science(s) of computing and its history and stimulating
a theoretical dialogue between these domains. To furter this dialogue
HaPoC has chosen to have no parallel sessions. Our invited speakers are:
Janet Abbate; Bernard Chazelle; S. Barry Cooper; Walter Dean; Nathan
Ensmenger; Jean-Yves Girard; Margit Rosen and Franck Varenne.
HaPoC 2013 is the follow-up conference to HaPoC 2011 (Gent, Belgium).
Please check out the website of HaPoC 2013 for more information on the

      b. Computing and the Arts : historical and conceptual issues
