ETHICOMP 2014 – “Liberty and Security in an Age of ICTs”

Call for papers

Venue: Paris

Dates: Wednesday-Friday 25 to 27 June 2014


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: Professional Enquiries) conference (sponsored by INSEIT -
the International Society for Ethics and Information Technology).  Our
conferences will be hosted by CERNA (Commission de réflexion sur l’Ethique
de la Recherche en sciences et technologies du Numérique d’Allistene).

“Liberty and Security in an Age of ICTs” 

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 tracks 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


As well, the overlap day between the two conferences (Wednesday, July 25)
will focus on gender and technology (see:

                   The 19th International Conference on
         Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning

               Stellenbosch, South Africa, 14-19 December 2013

The series of International Conferences on Logic for Programming, Artificial
Intelligence and Reasoning (LPAR) is a forum where, year after year, some of 
the most renowned researchers in the areas of logic, automated reasoning,
computational logic, programming languages and their applications come to
present cutting-edge results, to discuss advances in these fields, and to
exchange ideas in a scientifically emerging part of the world. The 19th LPAR
will be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa.


In keeping with the tradition of LPAR, researchers and practitioners are 
invited to submit short papers reporting on interesting work in progress or
providing system descriptions. They need not be original. Extended or revised
versions of the short papers may be submitted concurrently with or after LPAR 
to another conference or a journal. Short papers are limited in length to 8 
pages in the EasyChair format.

Accepted papers will be published electronically as a volume in the EPiC 
series, see http://www.easychair.org/publications/?page=38379010. Authors of 
accepted papers are required to ensure that at least one of them will be 
present at the conference. Papers that do not adhere to this policy will not 
be published.

The LaTeX, Microsoft Word and LibreOffice templates for the EPiC series may 
be downloaded from http://www.easychair.org/publications/?page=1594225690.
