New Centre for Digital Philosophy at the University of Western Ontario

http://cdp.uwo.ca

We are glad to announce the official launch of the Centre for Digital 
Philosophy at the University of Western Ontario. The Centre will be based 
in the Department of Philosophy at Western. David Bourget will head the 
Centre. David Chalmers will be associate director.

 CDP will advance research and education in philosophy through digital 
means. In particular, it will continue the development of PhilPapers, 
PhilEvents, PhilJobs, and other Phil* projects we have initiated. CDP will 
also support projects that aim to advance our understanding of philosophy 
and philosophical problems through technology or technology-centric 
methods. There are possibilities for PhD studentships and postdocs for 
individuals pursuing relevant research. The Centre also needs Perl and 
Groovy programmers.

 CDP's initial partners include the American Philosophical Association, the 
Rotman Institute of Philosophy, the Institute of Philosophy at the 
University of London, the Australian National University, and other units 
at Western.

 For more information, please visit the Centre's web page:

 Please note that access to PhilPapers may be briefly disrupted in the 
coming days as we move our operations to new servers at Western. We 
appreciate your patience.
