PHILOSOPHY OF COMPUTER SCIENCE -
``Exploring the Scientific Nature of the Information and Computing Sciences''
Computer science (or: Informatics) is reaching into all facets of science and
society. New developments continuously challenge our understanding of the field. How
are its scientific foundations evolving? What can the computational lens tell
us about the world? Our research focuses on (a) the 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
We have a long-standing interest in the theories, algorithms and philosophy of the
information and computing sciences and their application in science, industry, the
algorithmic economy, and society.
- Computation: interactive algorithms, algorithmic mechanisms, intelligent
algorithms, non-classical computing.
- Complexity: computational complexity, network analysis, resource-bounded
agents, non-uniform complexity.
- Design: information architecture, algorithmic modeling, algorithmic systems.
- Philosophy: foundations of informatics, understanding computation, nature of
Symposia and Societies
