CALL FOR PAPERS: Special issue on History and Philosophy of Computing

Special Issue of "Philosophy and Technology" -Title Trends in the History and Philosophy of Computing -GUEST EDITORS Liesbeth De Mol & Giuseppe Primiero

The computing sciences collect the most diverse complex of experts:
philosophers, logicians, historians, mathematicians, computer scientists,
programmers, engineers. The number of involved subjects grows accordingly: from
foundational issues to their applications; from philosophical questions to
problems of realizability and design of specifications; from theoretical
studies of computational barriers to the relevance of machines for educational
purposes. A historical awareness of the evolution of computing not only helps
to clarify the complex structure of the computing sciences, but it also
provides an insight in what computing was, is and maybe could be in the future.
Philosophy, on the other hand, helps to tackle some of the fundamental problems
of computing, going from the limits of the ?mathematicizing power of homo
sapiens?to the design of feasible and concrete models of interactive
processes.  Following the organization of the first International Conference on
the History and Philosophy of Computing,

held from November 7 to 10, 2011 at the University of Ghent and organized by
the Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science, a special issue of the Journal
Philosophy & Technology is planned.

The computing sciences are typically the connecting field between theory and
application, between foundational problems related to logic and mathematics and
technological issues referring to hardware, software and their impact on our
lives. We solicit submissions of papers that explore the philosophical
relevance of issues in the technology and in particular that do so in a
historical perspective. Areas of relevance are the birth, evolution and future
of  machines, algorithms and programs;  the foundational and practical issues
related to models of computability and programming languages; computer
experiments and simulations, computer-aided systems, math- and engineering
software, e-learning, scientific databases, computer and the arts.
