Special Extended CFA: IACAP 2019 Distributed Computing and Epistemic Logic Track

The International Association for Computing and Philosophy (IACAP) announces that submissions are now being accepted for the IACAP 2019: Distributed Computing and Epistemic Logic Track, June 5, to be held at and sponsored by the Institute of Mathematics, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). This special track is being organized by,

Alexandru Baltag: ILLC Amsterdam, The Netherlands
(http://www.illc.uva.nl/People/show_person.php?Person_id=Baltag+A.B.)

Sergio Rajsbaum: Institute of Mathematics, UNAM.
(http://www.matem.unam.mx/~rajsbaum/)

This year the IACAP Annual Meeting will include a special, one-day track on research related to computing and epistemic logic, with special interest in concurrency; computing systems where multiple sequential computers or microprocessors interact. Knowledge-theoretic tools have been applied to theoretical and practical problems in distributed and multi-agent system, both to design solutions and to prove impossibility results. They and have turned out to have interesting connections with topology. From the computability perspective, fault-tolerant distributed systems are of a very different nature than Turing machines. We are looking to have interesting discussions, presentations, and foster further collaborations on these topics. The track will include introductory talks to the exciting new interconnections between computing, logic and philosophy. We invite submissions of extended abstracts for this track.

The International Association for Computing and Philosophy promotes philosophical dialogue and interdisciplinary research on all aspects of the computational and informational turn. Coming to these issues from a rich variety of disciplines, IACAP’s members have a tradition of helping to shape philosophical and ethical debates about the nature, development, application, and limits of computation, information technologies, and artificial intelligence.

IACAP’s 2019 meeting will gather philosophers, mathematicians, ethicists, logicians, roboticists, computer scientists, and cognitive scientists to explore topics including,

Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Life
Automated Warfare
Cognitive Science, Computation, and Cognition
Computational Modeling in Science and Social Science
Computer-Mediated Communication
Ethical Problems and Societal Impact of Computation and Information
Ethics and Epistemology of Big Data
History of Computing and Logic
Computability and Complexity Theory
Information Culture and Society
Metaphysics and Epistemology of Computation
Philosophy of Computer Science
Philosophy of Information
Philosophy of Information Technology
Philosophy of Mind
Robotics
Virtual Reality
… and related issues
