PROGRAMme spring workshop: Machines

It is my pleasure to announce that the next event on the history and philosophy of computer programs within the framework of the PROGRAMme project (https://programme.hypotheses.org/) will be held from June 5-7 2019 at the MESHS, 2 Rue des Canonniers, 59000 Lille, espace Baïetto and Salle 002.

On June 5 we will have the last session of the academic year of the Lille-Paris séminaire HEPIC (Histoire et Philosophie de l’informatique et du calcul) around the topic: /Computing – a human activity?/ Speakers are:

13h-14h15: David Aubin (Université de Paris 6), Astronomical tables as work, 16th-18th centuries
14h15-14h30: pause
14h30-15h45: Stephen Kell (University of Kent), Software against humanity? An Illichian perspective on the industrial era of software
15h45-16h15: pause
16h15-17h30: Christiane Floyd (Technical University of Vienna), The move to activity-centered views of software development

From June 6-7 the Spring workshop 2019 of the PROGRAMme project is organized. It is the second in a series of four workshops. Each focuses on one of the PROGRAMme project’s main clusters in connection to the other three. The second workshop will focus on the cluster Machines and so offers reflections on a set of historical, philosophical and epistemological question on Computing Machines, broadly interpreted, and this in relation to the other three clusters (Logic; Programming languages and notations; Systems).

In order to register, please send a mail with your affiliation to: [email protected] *before May 20 2019*. Registration is free but required in order to attend.
