The CEPE conference series is recognized as one of the
premier international events on computer and
information ethics attended by delegates from all over
the world. Conferences are held about every 24 months,
alternating between Europe and the United States. CEPE
2005 is the sixth conference in the series.

 Information technology is currently moving well beyond
the familiar mainframe, PC and laptop computer
paradigms. We are witnessing the mobile revolution,
the ubiquitous computing revolution, as well as
revolutionary new uses of IT in biomedicine,
education, the fight against crime and terrorism,
entertainment and other areas. We are anticipating a
nanotechnology revolution, as well as a convergence
between information technology, biotechnology and
nanotechnology. These new developments require ethical
reflection, possibly even before their consequences
become visible.

The special theme of CEPE2005 is:

Ethics of New Information Technologies

Papers of an ethical or philosophical nature within
the following areas are particularly welcomed:

- Virtual and augmented reality and shared virtual
- Nanotechnology and nanocomputing
- Ubiquitous computing and ambient intelligence
- Converging technologies (the convergence of
nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology
and cognitive science)
- New surveillance technologies and new technologies
for security and privacy
- New uses of information technology in biomedicine
and bioengineering
- New military applications of IT
- New uses of information technology in education
- New IT solutions to environmental problems
- New communication technologies and mobile computing
- New developments in artificial intelligence,
artificial agents, embedded systems and artificial
- Models for the ethical assessment of new and future
information technologies
-  We particularly welcome papers from applied ethics
fields other than computer ethics that focus on any of
the above areas, as well as papers from computer
science professionals who combine their
state-of-the-art knowledge of IT with ethical
analysis. As in previous CEPE conferences, original
papers on computing and ethics outside the scope of
the conference theme will also be considered for

Papers will be accepted on the basis of a submitted
abstract, which will be refereed.

An abstract must be between 1200 and 1400 words in
length (references included) and submitted via email
as embedded plain text or an attachment in RTF or RD
6 format.

Abstracts must be submitted no later than 10 November
2004 to cepe {AT} utwente.nl. Authors will be informed of
the decision of the referees by 15 January 2005.

Full papers must be submitted by 1 May 2005.

We will also accept proposals for panel discussions,
also to be submitted by 10 November 2004.

CEPE 2005 will take place in conjunction with the 14th
Biennial International Conference of the Society for
Philosophy and Technology (SPT), which will be held
from July 20-22 at Delft University of Technology,
Delft, the Netherlands. See
