Program

The conference is interdisciplinary: we invite papers from philosophy, computer science, robotics, engineering sciences, social sciences and related disciplines. Papers can address one (or more) of a range of topics at the conceptual crossroads between philosophy and computation, including:biocomputing, AI, logic, cognition, ontology, knowledge systems, simulations, robotics, affective computing, epistemology, information ethics (including robot ethics), history, and cultural perspectives on these. IACAP’11 will promote scholarly dialogues on all aspects of this computational & informational turn of society and the use of computers and robots in the service of philosophy.
