We expect contributions about the following topics and their
1. The history of computational systems, machines and programs 2. Foundational issues and paradigms of programming (programming logics, semantics and proof-theories for distributed, secure, cloud, functional, object-oriented, etc.)
SUBMISSION DETAILS: The programme will consists of 2 Invited Lectures and up to 8 Contributed Papers. It will takes place in the afternoon session of the 5th and the morning session of the 6th of July.

Special Issue of Journal « Philosophy & Technology » TITLE: Trends in the History and Philosophy of Computing
GUEST EDITORS: Liesbeth de Mol & Giuseppe Primiero
We solicit submissions of papers that explore the philosophical
relevance of issues in the technology and in particular that do so in a
historical perspective. Areas of relevance are the birth, evolution and
future of machines, algorithms and programs; the foundational and
practical issues related to models of computability and programming
languages; computer experiments and simulations, computer-aided systems,
math- and engineering software, e-learning, scientific databases,
computer and the arts.
