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

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 elucidate traditional philosophical 
problems.  IACAP meetings emphasise this two-way relationship, providing an opportunity for 
researchers in multiple fields to share new work in an interdisciplinary setting. 

 We invite both abstract submissions and symposium proposals in areas at the intersection of 
computing and philosophy. This years meeting will have a single main track focusing on topics 
central to IACAP membership interests. 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.  Some abstracts will be accepted for presentation as posters. Paper presentations 
will be allotted 30 minutes, including discussion.

 Selected papers will be published 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.  IACAP 
is also soliciting nominations for a number of awards (see below).

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

     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
      Metaphysics of Computing
      Philosophy of Information
      Philosophy of Information Technology
      Virtual Reality
 ... and related issues


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.


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.

 Submissions may be sent through EasyChair:

IACAP also present junior and senior distinguished scholars with two awards. Nominations for the 
Simon and Covey Awards are now open. 

The Herbert A. Simon Award
The Herbert A. Simon Award for Outstanding Research in Computing and Philosophy recognizes scholars
at an early stage of their academic career who are likely to reshape debates at the nexus of 
Computing and Philosophy by their original research.  Nominations for the Herbert A. Simon Award 
may be proposed either by academic institutions or by colleagues with some expertise in computing 
and philosophy.  Previous recipients include Judith Simon (University of Vienna), Patrick Allo 
(Vrije Universiteit Brussels), John Sullins (Sonoma State) and Mariarosaria Taddeo (University of 
Hertfordshire, University of Oxford).
To nominate a candidate for this award, please send names and website URLs (or CVs) to by 15 January 2014.
The Covey Award
The Covey Award recognizes senior scholars with a substantial record of innovative research in 
the field of computing and philosophy broadly conceived.  Covey Award candidates may be proposed 
either by their home institution or by fellow scholars of computing and philosophy who are well 
versed in the candidates work.  Previous Recipients include Margaret Boden (University of Sussex),
Luciano Floridi (University of Hertfordshire), Terrell Bynum (Southern Connecticut State University), 
John R. Searle (University of California, Berkeley) and Edward N. Zalta (Stanford University).
To nominate a candidate for this award, please send names and website URLs (or CVs) to by 15 January 2014.
