Each workshop is a small scale gathering, with an open Call for Papers to present works in the large variety of research areas that focus on information, both in scientific and conceptual terms. This includes works in progress and we aim at discussing open problems in the area. For a brief presentation of the topics covered by this branch of philosophy, see http://www.socphilinfo.org/about-pi/about-pi.

The Workshop series has had publications in the following Journals: Synthese, Logique & Analyse, Minds & Machines, Topoi. We hope to offer presenters to the Seventh Workshop the chance to submit papers for the Special Issue of Information, Communication & Society (Taylor & Francis)
