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

IACAP 2014


The submission deadline for symposium proposals has been extended.

The Covey and Simon Award winners have been selected. The Executive 
Committee is pleased to announce that the Covey Award has been awarded to 
Professor Selmer Bringsjord (Rensselaer Polytechnic) and the Simon Award 
has been awarded to Professor Gualterio Piccinini (Missouri- St. Louis).

This year?s 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 year?s 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 ? 
Logic ? Metaphysics of Computing ? Philosophy of Information ? Philosophy 
of Information Technology ? Robotics ? Virtual Reality ... and related 


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: 28 February 2014
Submission of abstracts: 1 March 2014
Notification of acceptance or rejection: 13 March for symposia, 31 March for papers.

Submissions may be sent through Easychair.
