4-7 April 2011, 3rd AISB Symposium on Computing and Philosophy, York, U.K.

Date: 4-7 April 2011
Location: York, U.K.
Deadline: 31 December 2010

In conjunction with the 2011 AISB (Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour) Convention.

As a subject for philosophical investigation computing has a long history. With the rapid technological progress of electronic computing since the mid-20th century we have seen the emergence of much deeper and broader interactions between computing and philosophy. Both philosophy and computing stand to benefit from this continuing dialogue. The purpose of the symposium is to further strengthen communication between these disciplines, thereby to advance the philosophical study of computing in general in relation to a number of key issues. These include traditional philosophical problems and the philosophical issues surrounding computational modelling. We therefore welcome papers exploring any of these issues. Papers that engage with cognitive science are particularly encouraged.
