INFORMATICA / COMPUTER SCIENCE
CENTER for PHILOSOPHY OF COMPUTER SCIENCE -
``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
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 of Informatics: foundations of informatics, understanding
computation, nature of information, perspectives.
