November 30, 2015 - Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford, UK

Abstracts are invited for the workshop “The Ethics of Data Science: The Landscape for the Alan Turing Institute”. This event is being organised as part of a series of activities promoted by the Alan Turing Institute (ATI) in order to define the national and international landscape around data science and to support the ATI’s scientific programme.

The Journal of Logic and Computation (OUP) has launched a new section devoted to Logic and Philosophy of Information edited by Luciano Floridi and Marcello D'Agostino. The editors welcome papers on the relationship between logic and information, including philosophical aspects, provided they have a mathematical/computational content.

From the editorial:

Digital technologies of the 21st century are profoundly transforming the nature of evidence and evidential practices in a wide range of domains, including science, medicine, law, education, journalism, government, public policy and global, national and domestic security. These changes call for rigorous analysis and critical reflection across a range of related topics and disciplines.

A Book Symposium on Le concept d’information dans la science contemporaine has just been published online at the journal homepage of Philosophy & Technology. Many thanks to Nandita Biswas Mellamphy, Jean-Hugues Barthélémy, Marc J. de Vries, and especially Nathalie Simondon for contributing to the volume.
