SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS, 2nd International CONFERENCE on the HISTORY AND
PHILOSOPHY OF COMPUTING (HaPoC 2013)

 Extended Submission Deadline: 15th May 2013 !

28th - 31st October 2013
Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris.
with a special session on "Computing and the Arts" at Ecole Nationale
Superieure des Arts Decoratifs

http://hapoc2013.sciencesconf.org

The 2nd International Conference on the History and Philosophy of
Computing (HaPoC 2013) will take place from the 28th to the 31st of
October 2013 at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris (France). 
The birth of the computing and its sciences has often been the topic of
philosophical and historical reflection. The HaPoC-conferences have
decided to bring together the historical and the philosophical
viewpoints. They want to create an environment for a true
interdisciplinary convergence around computer science, reenforcing
research on the science(s) of computing and its history and stimulating
a theoretical dialogue between these domains. To furter this dialogue
HaPoC has chosen to have no parallel sessions. Our invited speakers are:
Janet Abbate; Bernard Chazelle; S. Barry Cooper; Walter Dean; Nathan
Ensmenger; Jean-Yves Girard; Margit Rosen and Franck Varenne. 
HaPoC 2013 is the follow-up conference to HaPoC 2011 (Gent, Belgium).
Please check out the website of HaPoC 2013 for more information on the
conference:

http://hapoc2013.sciencesconf.org

For HaPoC 2013 we welcome contributions from logicians, philosophers and
historians of computing as well as from philosophically aware computer
scientists and mathematicians. Topics include but are not limited to:
1. Approaches to the notion of computing 
     a. History and Philosophy of Computability
     b. History and Philosophy of Computation 
     c. History and Philosophy of Programming 
     d. History and Philosophy of the Computer
2. Applications and uses of Computing
     a. History and Epistemology of the use of Computing in the
sciences 
     b. Computing and the Arts : historical and conceptual issues 
     c. Social, ethical and paedagogical aspects of Computing 

We cordially invite researchers working in a field relevant to the main
topics of the conference to submit a short abstract of approximately 200
words and an extended abstract of at most a 1000 words (references
included) to

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hapoc2

Abstracts must be written in English and anonymized. Please note that
the format of uploaded files must be .pdf or .doc.

The submission deadline is: May 15th, 2013 (extended!)

Best regards,
the organisers,

Maarten Bullynck (Paris 8 & SPHERE)

Call for Papers
Remediating the Avant-Garde: Magazines and Digital Archives
Princeton University
October 25th-26th, 2013

The Blue Mountain Project at Princeton University invites paper proposals for a two-day conference, to be held in Princeton, New Jersey on October 25th and 26th, 2013.

Context of inquiry

The aim of our conference is to explore the fertile conceptual and practical ground where traditional area studies, periodical studies, digital humanities, computer science, and library and information science converge. We are interested in how these fields inform each other and challenge us to think and create in new ways, both as builders of digital resources and as scholars and teachers of avant-garde periodicals. The following set of questions will frame the conference discussions:

·     What intellectual and technological insights emerge when we attempt to represent avant-garde periodicals – their specific aesthetic, material, and social features; format; diverse historical, linguistic and national specificities – in the digital environment?

·     What are the potentials, and what are the risks, for intellectual engagement with avant-garde periodicals when they are remediated in the digital environment? What positive and/or negative impact can the application of new methods of representation and analysis have on both short-term research and teaching and longer-term understanding of this material?

·     Can we define a set of priorities, or best practices, for representing avant-garde periodicals in the digital environment?

Papers sought

We welcome, in particular, papers that touch upon topics such as:
-       aspects of remediating visual, verbal and musical texts
-       methods of representation (e.g. bibliographic description and analysis, ontology design, text encoding, linked data, interface)
-       methods of analysis (e.g. full-text searching, data mining, visualization, GIS, topic modeling)
-       dynamics of control by reader/user vs. control by system/format
-       pedagogical practices

Conference Outline

The conference will comprise three panel discussions, one roundtable discussion, and a workshop. The keynote address will be delivered by Johanna Drucker, Breslauer Professor of Bibliographical Studies in the Department of Information Studies at UCLA, known widely for her work in the history of graphic design, typography, experimental poetry, fine art, and digital humanities.

Submission details

Paper proposals (abstract 500 words, plus short author bio) due: May 31, 2013
Acceptance notification: June 15, 2013
Send proposals and inquiries to: Natalia Ermolaev: nataliae at princeton.edu<mailto:nataliae at princeton.edu>

The Blue Mountain Project at Princeton University is the collaborative work of scholars, librarians, curators, and digital humanities researchers to create a freely available electronic repository of art, music, and literary periodicals that both chronicle and embody the emergence of cultural modernity in the West. This conference is being made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
