The award shall consist of $1,000, given annually to a graduate student who is working on a dissertation on the philosophy of information (broadly construed). As we see it, the range of philosophical questions relating to information is broad, and approachable through a variety of philosophical traditions (philosophy of mind, logic, philosophy of information so-called, philosophy of science, etc.).
This coming year, the Computer Ethics: Philosophical Enquiry (CEPE), sponsored by the International Society for Ethics and Information Technology (INSEIT: http://goo.gl/8WI1I3) and the International Association for Computing and Philosophy (IACAP: http://www.iacap.org) will run their first joint international conference.
