Deadline for submissions: September 30th 2022

Ethical issues are among the most interesting in emerging technologies. Theoretical and technological advances are more and more building machines that are so efficient as to share the same environment with human beings. This makes ethics a crucial step in the process of developing robotics and intelligent machines. Without ethical reflection, there is a risk of delaying technological developments. Ethical reflection starts upstream at the very beginning of the enquiry by questioning researchers about what they are doing, why, and for whom. It explores their values and broadens the research focus by engaging other stakeholders; it includes intuitions to be weighed against other intuitions, and it tests them against theology, sapiential knowledge, arts, and normative theories.… read more. “Call: “Ethics in Robotics and Intelligent Machines” issue of Humana.Mente”

Conventionally, places are characterized by physical features (i.e., furniture layout, quality of daylighting, etc.) and behaviors of people who occupy them (i.e., eating, meeting friends, etc.). The advent of virtual technologies (computers, Internet-of-things, etc.) and the social distancing behaviors adopted during the pandemic (Zoom meetings, remote learning) have changed our conventional sense of place. While virtual technology has disrupted our traditional behaviors in corresponding physical locations, it has also transformed virtual experiences such as online shopping, remote work, tele worship, telemedicine, home Yoga, home entertainment, virtual happy hours, and home-schooling among others.… read more. “Call: “Exploring the Future of Interior Design in a Virtual-Physical Continuum” issue of Journal of Interior Design”

Dear all,

On January 27 and 28, 2022, there will be an international online conference on Intercultural Ethics, with a specific focus on the ethics of technology and intercultural philosophy. Our aim is to bring together the ethical approaches and frameworks from various cultural backgrounds and traditions, in order to organize an intercultural ethical dialogue, especially on (but not limited to) technology and its social and cultural implications.

The conference will be organized by the Ethics of Socially Disruptive Technologies research program: a 10-year program in which 5 universities collaborate to investigate how new and emerging technologies challenge our ethical frameworks and approaches (for more information: see www.esdit.nl). It will be hosted from the University of Twente, the Netherlands.… read more. “Call: IET 2022: Intercultural Ethics and Technology Conference”

Call: “The Human Factor” for Yearbook of Technology Philosophy 2023

Call for Papers

Jahrbuch Technikphilosophie [Yearbook of Technology Philosophy] 2023
“The Human Factor”
https://groups.google.com/g/isr-hps-sts/c/lIPVL3Z_24E

Submission deadline: January 15, 2022
Optional topic proposals/outlines accepted until October 15, 2021

The perfection of technology makes “man” appear in a variety of different lights. According to many narratives, perfected technology (finally) sets humans free, thanks to services ideally suited to them.

But perfected technology also leads to something like an inverse anthropology: the more perfect, the more determined things ideally are or should be, the more noticeably the human factors, the degrees of freedom of human behavior, appear as a source of irritation. The individual human being is the irregular element: unpredictable, imperfect, he (or she) just “fits” badly: individuals press the wrong buttons, get tired in front of the screen, misuse tools, try out what happens when setting off an alarm, and run across busy streets without looking right or left.… read more. “Call: “The Human Factor” for Yearbook of Technology Philosophy 2023”

Call for Abstracts

The third Budapest Workshop on Philosophy of Technology
December 9-10, 2021
Budapest University of Technology and Economics
https://www.budpt.eu/

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 31 August 2021

Dear all,

The third Budapest Workshop on Philosophy of Technology will be held December 9-10, 2021, at Budapest University of Technology and Economics. Proposal abstracts are due by 31 August 2021. Instructions and details are online: https://www.budpt.eu/. There are no fees of any kind.

As in 2019, the presenters will be offered an opportunity to publish a full paper in the WoS SSCI-indexed InfTars (“Information Society”: inftars.infonia.hu) journal after the workshop. At budpt.eu you can browse a selection of the papers from BudPT19.

BudPT21 hopes to be an in-person conference. This displays our trust in medical technology as well as a certain amount of optimistic bias. However, should any accepted participants become unable to attend, they will still be able to submit a pre-recorded video and publish the full paper (but we will not transition to a hybrid conference).… read more. “Call: Third Budapest Workshop on Philosophy of Technology”
