GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE CONGRESS


AISB and IACAP have joined forces to run the above Congress in 2012. The
Congress serves both as the year's AISB Convention and the year's IACAP
conference. The Congress has been inspired by a desire to honour Alan
Turing and by the broad and deep significance of Turing's work to AI, to
the philosophical ramifications of computing, and to philosophy and
computing more generally. The Congress is one of the events forming the
Alan Turing Year (http://www.mathcomp.leeds.ac.uk/turing2012/).

The intent of the Congress is to stimulate a particularly rich
interchange between AI and Philosophy on any areas of mutual interest,
whether directly addressing Turing's own research output or not.
