Submissions are invited for the Eighth Workshop on the Philosophy of Information, which will take place at the University of Ferrara, 13th–14th of June 2016 immediately prior to the 2016 IACAP Conference.

Perhaps not a "classic," but at least for me it is the place where I learned that what I was doing already had a name: "The Philosophy of Information".

A not so randomly chosen quote:

As an utterly new and revolutionary technology, databases have raised a number of philosophical issues, some of which can be briefly discussed here, but will need to be analysed in full by any future philosophy of information.

The research collaboration "Epistemology of the LHC" organizes an interdisciplinary workshop entitled "The Epistemology of Data Selection and Analysis Procedures in Physics," which will take place at Wuppertal University from March 7-9, 2013. The workshop will bring together physicists, philosophers of science as well as historians and sociologists of science. The aim is a better understanding of processes of data handling, such as selection or reduction, with a certain but not exclusive focus on the physical sciences.
