CALL FOR PAPERS: Annual Meeting of the International Association for Computing and Philosophy, July 2-4, 2014, Anatolia College/ACT Thessaloniki, GREECE

http://www.pt-ai.org/iacap/2014/

IACAP 2014

This years meeting of the International Association for Computing and Philosophy will be held at 
Anatolia College/ACT in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Computing technologies both raise philosophical questions and shed light on traditional 
philosophical problems; it is this two-way relation that is the focus of IACAP meetings.

We invite submission of abstracts, as well as submission of proposals for symposia on computing 
and philosophy. This years meeting will have a single main track, focusing on topics which proved 
to be at the core of IACAP members interest. In parallel, the symposia will focus on more specific
topics, organised autonomously by members or member groups. One symposium will be dedicated to the 
work of young researchers.

We will publish selected papers in a volume of the Synthese Library (Springer). Authors of 
accepted abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper for peer-review to this volume.

Some abstracts will be accepted for presentation as posters. For papers, we foresee slots of 30
minutes per talk, including discussion.

Topics of interest:
     Artificial Intelligence
     Artificial Life
     Cognitive Science, Computation & Cognition
     Computational Modeling in Science and Social Science
     Computer-Mediated Communication
     Distance Education and Electronic Pedagogy
     Ethical Problems and Societal Impact of Computation and Information
     History of Computing
     Information Culture and Society
     Logic
     Metaphysics of Computing
     Philosophy of Information
     Philosophy of Information Technology
     Robotics
     Virtual Reality
... and related issues

FORMAT
For abstracts, we request anonymous submission of 600-1000 words (plus references) in plain text or
PDF, plus a short abstract of up to 120 words. All submissions will be reviewed double-blind by at 
least two members of the programme committee. All submissions of paper abstracts - whether to the 
main track or to symposia - are made centrally on the same site and all reviewing takes place on 
that site.

For symposia, please provide a brief motivation (ca. 300 words), a list of envisaged speakers, and
 indication of time needed (full day, half day, etc.). The submission procedure and reviewing for 
symposia will be taken care of by their organisers - but within the structure provided by IACAP 
and the submission system for this conference.

DATES
Submission of symposium proposals: 1.  February 2014
Submissions of abstracts: 1 March 2014
Notification of acceptance or rejection: 28 February for symposia, 31 March for papers.
