We are pleased to invite for the fourth time to a nationwide scientific conference from the series “Philosophy in Computer Science”, which will take place on 23-24 November 2018 at the Warsaw University of Technology and the Military University of Technology in Warsaw.
The main theme of this year’s meeting is: Philosophy towards the basics and applications of computer science.
The first conference of this series took place at the Warsaw University of Technology in 2015: http://calculemus.org/fli/; the second at the Faculty of Philosophy of the Jagiellonian University in Krakow in 2016: http://calculemus.org/fi2/; and the third edition was organized at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań: http://calculemus.org/fi3/
Our meetings are designed to bring together various Polish circles engaged in philosophy of computer science. We hope that by inviting specialists in various fields, we will contribute to the development of interdisciplinary research related to information technology. We are open to scientists from outside Poland, so some of the speeches and publications may be presented in English.
The special guest of this year’s edition will be Professor Raymond Turner from Great Britain, who will deliver a special lecture on 24 November. Professor Witold Marciszewski remains the honorary patron of the series.
