About the Commission

HAPOC is an Inter-division Commission of the Division of the History of Science and Technology and the Division of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology.

The aims of this Commission are:

  • To enhance our understanding of computing by means of historical and philosophical explorations;
  • To enforce and support collaborations among researchers involved in any of the topics relevant to HaPoC
  • To promote the organization of scientific and cultural events that strengthen knowledge and
    relevance of computing.
