 *CALL FOR PAPERS: "Philosophy and Computation", International Workshop,
May 12-13th, 2012*, Department of Philosophy and Cognitive Sciences,
Lund University, Sweden.

 http://www.fil.lu.se/conferences/conference.asp?id=51&lang=se

 The workshop "Philosophy and Computation" aims to be a platform for
various discussions concerning *the use of computability in philosophy
*(for example, how computational complexity constraints can contribute
to explain human understanding) and also *questions concerning the
philosophical investigation of computation* (like questions related to
Church-Turing thesis).

The workshop is an *official event* of the celebration of Turing s
Centenary. More information about the celebrations can be found at the
following website: http://www.turingcentenary.eu/

The main objective of the workshop is to gather international
specialists, philosophers, cognitive scientists and computer scientists,
who will be given an opportunity to present their research and time to
discuss important topics related to philosophy and computation. In
addition, there are *four slots for contributed papers*. People who
would like to participate in the workshop are invited to send us an
abstract of a proposed talk (details below). *The selected contributors
will have their travel and accommodation costs covered by the
organizers.*

*Themes for contributed papers include (but are not limited to):*
- Church-Turing thesis
- Philosophical insight into the concept of algorithm
- Computational complexity used in philosophy
- Computational constraints on human understanding
 - Problems of notations or encodings used in computing
 - Nature of physical computation
- Computational theories of mind
