Eighth Workshop on the Philosophy of Information
Second Call for Abstracts

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.

The general theme for this year is the role of data in biomedical sciences, and should encourage an exchange between the philosophy and methodology of the biomedical sciences and the philosophy of information about what it means to use data as evidence or to use data as information for understanding, but also for action (informing/supporting decisions).

Topics of interest include:

Epistemic standards for evidence
Evidence Based Medicine
Causation
Information in probabilistic and abductive reasoning
Data and information visualisation in biomedical sciences
Data and information in biomedical informatics
Biomedical ontologies
Ethical and epistemological perspectives on data handling
The value and importance of reproducible results
The place of negative results
Open data, and the distribution and re-use of data

In addition to two invited speakers, we have up to 7 slots of 45 minutes (30+15) available for contributed talks.
Abstracts of 500-1000 words should be submitted no later than 15 March 2016 to socphilinfo@gmail.com. Submissions will be evaluated by the programme committee, and acceptance notifications will be issued by 15 April 2016.

Now reading the excellent introduction to the philosophy of information by the society while preparing a class on personal identity in pervasive gaming. Quite relevant, since the synchronic identity question mentioned by Floridi is quite similar to the question of identity in roleplaying games / LARPs and ARGs, where different identities are coming together, from which one is strongly mediated. Thank you Phyllis Illari and Frederico Gobbo for your excellent chapter on personal identity.
