The joint ESDiT / 4TU.Ethics international conference on “Rethinking Ethics – Reimagining Technology” will take place from October 2nd to October 4th at the University of Twente in the Netherlands.
With the theme of “Rethinking Ethics – Reimagining Technology”, this conference aims to address the question what philosophy and ethics of technology mean today. It accordingly seeks to bring together scholars working on philosophy and ethics of technology, whether this work concerns conceptual analysis, reflections on methods for studying and evaluating technology, case-studies in the ethics of (disruptive) technologies, sustainable technology, praxis-oriented approaches geared towards design and social implications, or topics related to these.
We invite submissions for individual papers, panel sessions, or roundtables. Less traditional types of sessions addressing philosophy and ethics of technology will be taken into consideration as well.
Besides a general track on philosophy and ethics of technology, the conference will be structured around 7 thematic tracks. You can find descriptions of the tracks by scrolling down and clicking on the track titles.
All submissions are subject to blind peer-review, meaning that besides a name and contact details, biographies need not be submitted at this time.
To submit an individual paper, please provide an abstract that is prepared for anonymous review of approximately 350 words and maximally 5 keywords.
To submit a panel proposal or roundtable, please provide a title, a brief (approx. 500 words) description of the topic, names of those participating, and titles for each paper/presentation. Abstracts of the papers included in the panel (approx. 300 words) are strongly encouraged. Besides mentioning the names of those participating, all materials should be anonymized for review. Participants should be confirmed as willing to attend if the session goes forward.
For proposals for different types of sessions, please send us an email.
