2nd International Conference on the History and Philosophy of Computing

October 28-31, 2013, Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, FRANCE

The 2nd International Conference on the History and Philosophy of Computing(HaPoC 2013) will take place from the 28th to the 31st of October 2013 at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris.

The birth of the computing and its sciences has often been the topic of philosophical and historical reflection. The HaPoC-conferences have decided to bring together the historical and the philosophical viewpoints. They want to create an environment for a true interdisciplinary convergence around computer science, reenforcing research on the science(s) of computing and its history and stimulating a theoretical dialogue between these domains. To furter this dialogue HaPoC has chosen to have no parallel sessions. Our invited speakers are:
Janet Abbate; Bernard Chazelle; S. Barry Cooper; Walter Dean; Nathan Ensmenger; Jean-Yves Girard; Margit Rosen and Franck Varenne.

HaPoC 2013 is the follow-up conference to HaPoC 2011 (Gent, Belgium). Please check out the website of HaPoC 2013 for more information on the conference:
