Notice

Honouring Turing at the AISB 2012 Convention

The AISB's own Convention in 2012 will honour Turing

 

For 2012, AISB and IACAP (The International Association for Computing and Philosophy) have merged their annual symposia/conferences to form the AISB/IACAP 2012 World Congress. The congress will take place 2-6 July 2012 in Birmingham, UK.

The Congress has been inspired by a desire to honour Alan Turing and by the broad and deep significance of Turing's work to AI, to the philosophical ramifications of computing, and to philosophy and computing more generally. The Congress is one of the events forming the Alan Turing Year (http://www.mathcomp.leeds.ac.uk/turing2012/).

The intent of the Congress is to stimulate a particularly rich interchange between AI and Philosophy on any areas of mutual interest, whether directly addressing Turing's own research output or not.

The Congress will consist mainly of a number of collocated Symposia on specific research areas, interspersed with Congress-wide refreshment breaks, social events and invited Plenary Talks. Also, some related arts events will take place during the conference.

Submissions to symposia are currently being invited.
