INFORMATICA / COMPUTER SCIENCE

CENTER for PHILOSOPHY OF COMPUTER SCIENCE - Utrecht University

``Exploring the Scientific Nature of the Information and Computing Sciences''

Computer science (or: Informatics) is reaching into every facet of science, industry, business and society. New developments continuously challenge our understanding of the field. What is its scientific core? What challenges are facing computing science? What can the computational lens tell us about the world and how can this be used? The Center focuses on (a) the study of computational models and theories for understanding complex systems, and (b) the philosophy of informatics as part of the philosophy of science.

The Center for Philosophy of Computer Science is headed by professor Jan van Leeuwen, and is part of the Department of Information and Computing Sciences of Utrecht University (division Artificial Intelligence).
