Continuing the foci of the E-CAP conferences (beginning in Glasgow, 2002),
ECAP'06 will deal with all aspects of the "computational turn" that has
emerged over the past several decades, and continues to expand and develop
as a result of the multiple interactions between philosophy and computing.

The Dragvoll campus at NTNU offers excellent conference facilities as well a
beautiful physical setting as it overlooks Trondheim and the Trondheim
fjord. The city of Trondheim (Norway's ancient capital and home to the
Nidaros Cathedral, the largest Gothic cathedral north of the Rhine) is
easily accessible by air and rail, and is itself more than worth the visit.
