Dear all

The next seminar in The Royal Academy of Engineering series on
philosophy of engineering will be held on September 3rd 2007. The
title of the seminar is 'Engineering and Metaphysics'. Speakers at
the seminar will be Professor Peter Simons of the Philosophy
department at the University of Leeds, Dr Luciano Floridi of the
Philosophy department at University of Oxford and Dr Hasok Chang, of
the Department of Science and Technology Studies at UCL.

An electronic flyer will be distributed shortly with further
information about the speakers and their talks.

Kind regards,


If you would rather not receive emails on the philosophy of
engineering please let me know.

Digital Classicist/ICS Work in Progress Seminar, Summer 2007

Friday 27th July at 16:30, in room NG16, Senate House, Malet Street,

Janice Siegel (Hampden-Sydney College, VA)
'The New AV Classics Database: a community-annotated resource'


The newest incarnation of the much-expanded AV Classics Database is
about to become interactive (users will be able to post reviews of
items) and allows for easier, more extensive and more accurate searches
for listed resources using an advanced Web 2.0 interface.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

                               UNIVERSITY OF VIENNA

             organized by the Austrian Society for Cybernetic Studies
                             in cooperation with the

The international support of the European Meetings on Cybernetics and
Systems Research held in Austria in 1972, 1974, 1976, 1978, 1980,
1982, 1984, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002,
2004 and 2006 (when 500 scientists from more than 40 countries from
all continents, except the Antarctica, met to present, hear and
discuss 137 papers) encouraged the Council of the Austrian Society
for Cybernetic Studies (OSGK) to organize a similar meeting in 2008
to keep pace with continued rapid developments in related fields.
