This year the theme of the conference is Frontiers of philosophy of computing and information.
Our conference series is an attempt to consolidate various Polish and international research groups and scientific communities, which are interested in the philosophical debates concerning the Informatics (including: Computer Science), as well as assists in the development of the Philosophy of Informatics, with a particular focus on not only the theoretical and technological but also psychological and social aspects of the discipline. We hope that by inviting researchers from a variety of scientific disciplines dealing with the concepts of information and computing, such as philosophy (particularly logic, ontology and the theory of knowledge), information technology, computer science, physics, information science, psychology and sociology, we contribute to the further development of interdisciplinary research on information and information processing.
