will be held on the campus of Wellington Institute of Technology 
(WelTec), Petone, Wellington, New Zealand.  AP-CAP 2010 is part of a 
series of conferences organised by the International Association for 
Computing and Philosophy. CAP conferences are interdisciplinary by their 
very nature; we therefore welcome the submission of papers from a wide 
variety of disciplines at the intersection of philosophy, computer 
science and information technology as well as related areas in the 
social sciences.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers
