About the conference: 

Since 2011, the biennial History and Philosophy of Computing (HaPoC) conference series has contributed to building an interdisciplinary community that addresses the topics of computing and computing technology. HaPoC aims to bring together historians, philosophers, computer scientists, social scientists, legal scholars, designers, engineers, practitioners, artists, logicians, mathematicians, each with their own experience and expertise, to participate in the collective construction of a comprehensive and forward-looking image of computing. 

For HaPoC-7, we welcome contributions from researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds who intend to participate in the debates on the implications of computing and computing technologies for culture, science, and society. HaPoC participants contribute from their respective areas of expertise and are open to engage in interdisciplinary discussions across multiple fields. Topics include but are not limited to:

– Historical aspects of computing 

– Philosophical aspects of computing 

– Ethical and legal aspect of computing 

– Social and cultural aspects of computing

– Computing and the arts 

How to submit: 

We cordially invite researchers working in a field relevant to the main topics of the conference to submit two items for review:

i. a short abstract of 180-200 words and

ii. an extended abstract of at most 1.000 words (references included)

Submissions shall be made through EasyChair under this link: 

All abstracts will be reviewed by the members of the Programme Committee.

We look forward to meeting you at HaPoC-7 in Warsaw!
