From Monday 16 to Wednesday 18 June 2008 the Sixth International European Conference on COMPUTING AND PHILOSOPHY will be held on the Campus of the University for Science and Technology, Montpellier, France.

Continuing the foci of the E-CAP conferences (beginning in Glasgow, 2003), ECAP'08 will deal with all aspects of the "computational turn" that has emerged over the past several decades, and continues to expand and develop as a result of the multiple interactions between philosophy and computing.

1. Igor Aleksander Imperial college London UK : in the research area - Interdisciplinary Approaches to the Problem of Consciousness and Cognition

2. Jean-Yves Beziau Universit√?ň? de Neuchatel Switzerland : in the research area - "Intersections" - e.g., work at the crossroads of logic, epistemology, philosophy of science and ICT/Computing

3. Jean-Pierre Dupuy Stanford & CREA : in the research Area - Ethical and Political Dimensions of ICTs in Globalization

We invite papers that address all topics related to computing and philosophy, including cross- and interdisciplinary work that explores the computational turn in new ways. Hence, the following is intended to be suggestive, but not exclusive:
- Philosophy of Computer Science
- Ontology (Distributed Processing, Emergent Properties, Formal Ontology, Network Structures, etc)
- Computational Linguistics
- Global Information Infrastructures
- Philosophy of Information and Information Technology (Including: Information as structure; Semantic information)
- Interdisciplinary Approaches to the Problem of Consciousness and Cognition
- Computer-based Learning and Teaching Strategies and Resources & The Impact of Distance Learning on the Teaching of Philosophy and Computing
- IT and Gender Research, Feminist Technoscience Studies
- Information and Computing Ethics
- Biological Information, Artificial Life, Biocomputation
- New Models of Logic Software
- "Intersections" - e.g., work at the crossroads of logic, epistemology, philosophy of science and ICT/Computing, such as Philosophy of AI
- Ethical and Political Dimensions of ICTs in Globalization
