The goal of this interdisciplinary meeting is to explore philosophical and historical issues that arise at the intersection of theoretical computer science, mathematics, and natural science, including issues that arise in the practice of those disciplines. We welcome submissions on topics including, but not limited to, the following: the history of computer science; the foundations of computation and mathematical cognition; computational and informational perspectives on scientific decision making, scientific methodology, and the characterisation of scientific theories; physical notions of computation and the ‘Physical Church-Turing Thesis’.
