1-4 April 2014, Second Symposium on History and Philosophy of Programming (HaPoP 2), London, U.K.

Date: 1-4 April 2014
Location: London, U.K.
Deadline: 3 January 2014

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. The aim of this symposium is to zoom into one fundamental aspect of computing, that is the foundational and the historical problems and developments related to the science of programming.

The convention is organised by the Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour (AISB) as part of the AISB-50 Annual Convention 2014 to be held at Goldsmiths, University of London, on April 1st-4th 2014.
