2-6 July 2012, AISB/IACAP World Congress 2012 (in honour of Alan Turing), Birmingham, U.K.

Date: 2-6 July 2012
Location: Birmingham, U.K.
Deadline: 1 September 2011

For the Turing year 2012, the AISB (The Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour) and the IACAP (The International Association for Computing and Philosophy) merge their annual symposia/conferences to the AISB/IACAP World Congress. 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.

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.

For more information, see http://events.cs.bham.ac.uk/turing12/

Proposals for Symposia are welcomed in all areas of AI and cognitive science (as at normal AISB Conventions) and all areas of philosophy related to computing (as at normal IACAP conferences). We welcome sequels to previous AISB symposia or IACAP theme sessions. Symposia are expected normally to last for one day or two days, but somewhat shorter or longer possibilities can be considered. Each Symposium will be organized by its own programme committee. The deadline for Symposium proposals is 1 September 2011
