Dear AoIR-ists -
while not directly related to Internet research - some AoIRists in Europe
might find especially the tracks on ethics and gender (chaired by AoIR's
very own Alison Adam!) of relevance to your work?

                        COMPUTING AND PHILOSOPHY
                         E-CAP 2006 at NTNU Norway
           Norwegian University for Science and Technology
        Dragvoll Campus, Trondheim, Norway, June 22-24, 2006
 Conference Co-Chairs:

E-CAP is the European conference on Computing and Philosophy, the European
affiliate of the International Association for Computing and Philosophy
(IACAP, www.iacap.org).
E-CAP is organized in cooperation with the Association of Computing
Machinery's Special Interest Group on Artificial Intelligence (SIGART)
E-CAP is the premier European venue for current research, reflection, and
lively discussion of all aspects of the "computational turn" that has
emerged over the past several decades, and continues to expand and develop
as a result of the multiple interactions between philosophy and computing.
The "culture" of E-CAP, like its sister CAP conferences in North America and
Asia-Pacific, discourages paper reading - and stresses instead the
presentation of ideas and lively discussion, along with informal networking.
On behalf of the Program Committee and presenting authors, we invite your
participation in ECAP'06.

The NTNU campus at Dragvoll offers excellent conference facilities as
well a beautiful physical setting as it overlooks Trondheim and the
Trondheim fjord. The city of Trondheim (Norway's ancient capital and
home to the Nidaros Cathedral, the largest Gothic cathedral north of the
Rhine) is easily accessible by air and rail, and is itself more than
worth the visit.

We look forward to welcoming you to Trondheim!
