The Third Asia-Pacific Computing and Philosophy Conference
November 2-4, 2007
Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand
The Third Asia-Pacific Computing and Philosophy Conference will again
take place at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand. The
conference is being held in succession to the successful Second Asia-
Pacific Conference in January 2005 (www.stc.arts.chula.ac.th/CAP/AP- CAP.html).
AP-CAP2007 is part of the series of conferences organized by the
International Association for Computing and Philosophy (www.ia-
cap.org). The conferences have been in held in various regions of the
world. As of now there are three major regions where these
conferences are held, namely in North America (NA-CAP), Europe (ECAP)
and Asia- Pacific.
As with the other CAP conferences, AP-CAP2007 will also deal with all
aspects of the “computational turn” that is occurring through the
interaction of the disciplines of philosophy and computing. And in
continuation from the second conference, papers dealing with
‘cultural’ aspects of computing and philosophy would be specially
emphasized, though papers in other areas will of course be welcome.
The conference is interdisciplinary: We invite papers from
philosophy, computer science, social science and related disciplines.
The conference will be held within the campus of Chulalongkorn University.
