3: Third International Conference for the History and Philosophy of

-- 11 October, 2015, Pisa



DHST commission for the history and philosophy of computing
is happy to announce the third HAPOC conference. The
series aims at creating an interdisciplinary focus on computing,
stimulating a dialogue between the historical and philosophical
viewpoints. To this end, the conference hopes to bring together
researchers interested in the historical developments of computing,
as well as those reflecting on the sociological and philosophical
issues springing from the rise and ubiquity of computing machines in
the contemporary landscape. In the past editions, the conference has
successfully presented a variety of voices, contributing to the
creation of a fruitful dialogue between researchers with different
backgrounds and sensibilities.

HaPoC 2015 we welcome contributions from historians and philosophers
of computing as well as from philosophically aware computer
scientists and mathematicians. Topics include but are not limited to

• History
and Philosophy of Computation (interpretation of the Church-Turing
thesis; models of computation; logical/mathematical foundations of
computer science; information theory...)

• History
and Philosophy of Programming (classes of programming languages;
philosophical status of programming...)

• History
and Philosophy of the Computer (from calculating machines to the
future of the computer; user interfaces; abstract architectures...)

• History
and Epistemology of the use of Computing in the sciences (simulation
vs. modelisation; computer-assisted proofs; linguistics...)

• Computing
and the Arts: historical and conceptual issues (temporality in
digital art; narration in interactive art work...)

• Social,
ethical and pedagogical aspects of Computing (pedagogy of computer
science; algorithms and copyright; internet, culture, society...)

invited speakers
are Nicola Angius (Università di Sassari, IT), Lenore Blum (Carnagie
Mellon University, USA), David Allan Grier (IEEE & George
Washington University, USA), Furio Honsell (Università di Udine,

2015 conference is located in Pisa, the cradle of Italian computer
science: here the first Italian computers were designed in the
mid-Fifties and the first Master course in informatics was
established in 1969. The Museum of Computing Machinery, part of the
University of Pisa, shows some artefacts from the early days of
Italian CS, as well a selection of personal computing machines.
Besides its artistic attractions, among them the world-famous leaning
tower, during the days of the conference Pisa will host the Internet
Festival, devoted to all the aspects of the net
