AISB event Bulletin Item

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

IACAP 2014 at Anatolia College/ACT, Thessaloniki, GREECE

Organisation: Vincent C. Mller & the IACAP Executive Committee

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 since 1986.
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.
