e-CAP Track on Philosophical perspectives on e-Science, e-Learning and Computer-Supported Collaborative Work

Track Chair: Annamaria Carusi, University of Oxford e-Research Centre

This track will consider a wide range of computational, information and communication technologies for conducting scholarly research; for learning, and for work. Typical technologies include Cyber-infrastructures; Virtual Research Envirnoments; Virtual Learning Environments; Virtual Worlds/ Second Life; Grid Technologies; Cloud Technologies; Web 2.0 / 3.0; Semantic Web; Social Semantic Web. Computational technologies for conducting research across the sciences, social sciences and humanities include tools for text mining, annotation, automaticed analysis, simulation, visualisation and many others.  Access to people and institutions is as important as access to information and tools, and there are several infrastructural and communicational tools geared specifically to facilitating inter-personal and inter-institutional communication,  including Access Grid, but currently also a huge number of Web 2.0 technologies geared towards the formation of groups or communities.

Papers on all aspects of the relation between knowledge and computational technologies are invited.

  • How is knowledge mediated, constructed or constituted through the computational technologies used for e-science ?
  • What is the nature of knowledge in computational domains?
  • What are data and information in learning, research, working contexts mediated by computational means?
  • What is the nature of community,  groups and collaboration?
  • How is the knowing/learning/professional subject positioned, constituted or constructed through these technologies?
  • Is the relationship between professional and amateur being reconfigured?
  • How are research domains being reshaped by these technologies?
  • How are the differences between knowing that and knowing how, between explicit and tacit knowledge, etc. played out in these  computational domains?
  • What is the role of trust and how does trust emerge in e-science, e-learning and cscw?  
  • Are e-mediated routes to knowledge and learning the way to open science, democracy and transparency?
  • In what way do institutions and power make themselves felt through cyber-infrastructures?
  • What is the role of the different media and forms of content available through, for example, Web 2.0 technologies?
  • What is the epistemological nature of computational simulations and / or visualisations? Are they something entirely different, requiring a new
  • epistemology?
  • Are they akin to thought experiments? What is their relationship to what they simulate?
  • How are the new technologies for conducting scientific and social scientific research reconfiguring the relationship between quantitative and qualitative
  • research methodologies?
  • What are the ethical, social and political implications of e-social science?
  • And lastly: what do the e-science and e-learning methodologies mean for the
  • teaching and doing of philosophy?
