AP-CAP 2010 is part of a series of conferences organised by the International Association for Computing and Philosophy. CAP conferences are interdisciplinary by their very nature; we therefore welcome the submission of papers from a wide variety of disciplines at the intersection of philosophy, computer science and information technology as well as related areas in the social sciences.
