Résumé

ETHICOMP 2014 (june 25 to 27) will be held in Paris at « Les Cordeliers ». The ETHICOMP conference series was initiated in 1995 by Professors Simon Rogerson and Terry Bynum. The purpose of this series is to provide an inclusive forum for discussing the ethical and social issues associated with the development and application of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Held every 18 months, the previous conferences have featured over 600 papers from delegates and speakers from all continents. ETHICOMP 2014 will be the first conference held jointly with the CEPE (Computer Ethics: Philosophical Enquiries) conference (sponsored by INSEIT - the International Society for Ethics and Information Technology). Our conferences will be hosted by CERNA.

Argument

As the current scandals over NSA surveillance and questions of freedom of expression demonstrate, ethics and ICTs are core issues for contemporary societies. Today’s technological changes and its multiple social and political impacts make it imperative we consider these changes in different contexts that look beyond just the present times and particular issues. The aim of the conference is to not only present and discuss these changes but also discuss its social and ethical impact on people, society, businesses and education. Interdisciplinary papers either with a conceptual, applied, case study, or practical are encouraged.

The conference has the overall theme of "liberty and security in an age of ICTs”. Under this umbrella theme, papers with social/ethical perspective (but not limited to), within the following areas with track chairs include:

  •  20 years of ETHICOMP: A celebration
  • Preparation of a special issue in the journal Philosophy of Technology
  • Education and Training,  e.g. Virtual learning environments, Blended learning, Digital tutors, Game-based learning
  • Government and Goverance, e.g. egovernment, edemocracy, evoting regulation and legislation
  • ICT and Ethics in Business, e.g. Professionalism, Surveillance & Monitoring, Ownership
  • Ethics of Emerging Technologies, e.g. Robotics, Social networking services
  • Responsible Research and Innovation in ICT, e.g. Ethics and rights in cybersecurity, Remote healthcare, Human-robot interaction

As well, the overlap day between the two conferences (Wednesday, July 25) will focus on gender and technology (see: cerna-ethics-allistene.org/CEPE-ETHICOMP-and-Women/).
