Dear colleagues,

it is my greatest pleasure to announce the first call for abstracts of 
the 5th international conference on the History and Philosophy of 
Computing, held from 29-30 october 2019 in Bergamo, Italy and organized 
by the DHST/DLMPST commission for the history and philosophy of 
computing (HaPoC),

with very best wishes,
Liesbeth De Mol


/HaPoC 2019: Call for Abstracts/

5th International Conference on the History and Philosophy of Computing

29-30 October 2019

Bergamo, Italy

Today more than ever computers have taken center stage in our lives: 
science, economy, politics, art, there is no single human endeavour that 
has been left unaffected by Information Technologies. Whether this 
impact is positive or negative, is still very much up for debate.

People connected to the Internet can enjoy an unprecedented amount of 
information and computing power at their disposal, but more and more 
negative side effects of a widespread use of computers are brought to 
our attention: automation bias, echo chambers, shortened attention 
spans, job displacement, election hacking are just a few examples. The 
latest AI-hype fuelled by computationally feasible machine learning 
techniques have brought to reality philosophical topics previously 
relegated to mental experiments and theoretical discourses. The trolley 
problem has never been more popular thanks to self-driving cars.



The need to conduct a systematic and well-informed discussion in a 
context ranging from theoretical and mathematical problems to labour and 
resource exploitation issues is evident. The broken dialogue between 
young and aggressively finance-oriented tech moguls and old-school 
politicians fumbling for regulation of little-known phenomena is not 
promising.

HaPoC’s appeal to historical and philosophical reflection aims at 
addressing this shortcoming. We aim to bring together researchers 
exploring the various aspects of computation: historians, philosophers, 
computer scientists, sociologists, anthropologists, designers, 
manufacturers, practitioners, artists, logicians, mathematicians, each 
with their own experience and expertise, all part of a society impacted 
by computation, and all necessary to the creation of a better discourse.

Main Topics

For HaPoC 2019, we welcome contributions from scholars who intend to 
participate in the debate on the impact of computers on culture, 
science, and society from the perspective of their area of expertise, 
and who are open to engage in interdisciplinary discussions across 
multiple fields. Topics include but are not limited to:

     History of computation, computers, algorithms, programs, paradigms, 
software and hardware companies and communities, …

     Philosophy of computation, philosophy of the mind in relation with 
computer science, ethics of computer science, epistemology of computer 
science…

     Foundational issues of computation, limits of computability, the 
Church-Turing thesis, formal systems, semantic of programs, …

     Computation in the Sciences, experiments and simulations with 
computers, big data analytics, epistemological issues, …

     Computation in Society, social networks, news and content 
distribution, automation, digital divide, privacy and security, …

     Computation in the Arts, digital art, interactivity, computer 
games, affective computing, human-computer interaction, …


How to submit

We cordially invite researchers working in a field relevant to the main 
topics of the conference to submit a short abstract of 180-200 words and 
an extended abstract of at most a 1000 words (references included) 
through EasyChair at:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hapoc2019

Accepted papers will be presented in 30 minute slots including 
discussion. Abstracts must be written in English. Please note that the 
format of uploaded files must be in .pdf. Submissions without extended 
abstract will not be considered.

Submission deadline: April 30, 2019
Notification of acceptance/rejection: June 30, 2019
