    Self-driving cars. Robots tending the homebound. Autonomous weapons. These are just a few examples of current and future systems that feature independence from human intervention. But how much autonomy is acceptable? And does autonomy dilute the foundational principle of a responsible agent?

  • Call for Papers: 20th International Conference on Ethics Across the Curriculum

    PostedWednesday, July 18, 2018 AT 2:03 PM

    Call for Papers
    20th International Conference on Ethics Across the Curriculum

    Rochester Institute of Technology
    October 11-13, 2018

    Theme: Ethics in STEM, Technology, Design and Engineering

    This conference welcomes abstracts and papers addressing any aspect of teaching ethics across the curriculum, but of special interest this year are those on how to integrate ethical considerations into STEM courses and courses in technology, design, and engineering. It is standard to add an ethics course to the curriculum or an extra week to an already crowded syllabus, but we are interested in whether, and how, ethics can be integrated into the subject matter of such courses — taught in teaching the usual syllabus.

    Submissions may include papers or abstracts (250 words). Session formats include papers, panels, case studies, and pedagogical demonstrations. Presentations are 20-25 minutes, with 5-10 more for Q&A. Format submissions for blind review and submit by September 1, 2018 ...
