AISB and IACAP are delighted to be joining forces to run the AISB/IACAP World Congress in 2012. The Congress serves both as the year's AISB Convention and the year's IACAP conference.  The Congress has been inspired by a desire to honour Alan Turing and by the broad and deep significance of Turing's work to AI, to the philosophical ramifications of computing, and to philosophy and computing more generally. The Congress is one of the events forming the Alan Turing Year.

The intent of the Congress is to stimulate a particularly rich interchange between AI and Philosophy on any areas of mutual interest, whether directly addressing Turing's own research output or not.

Visit the congress website for more details or contact the symposia organisers for information about the submission process.

The congress will host symposia (tracks) on the following topics:

  1. Mathematical Practice and Cognition II
  2. Hypercomputation and Artificial Intelligence
  3. Computing, Philosophy and the Question of Bio-Machine Hybrids: 4th AISB Symposium on Computing and Philosophy
