[Nettime-nl] TILTing Perspectives on Regulating Technologies


Op 10 en 11 december a.s. organiseert TILT (Tilburg Insitute for Law,  
Technology, and Society) de conferentie TILTing Perspectives on  
Regulating Technologies.

Overall conference theme
Innovative technologies – ICT, biotechnology, nanotechnologies – have  
a huge impact on society. Regulating these technologies is a complex  
effort. This conference aims at bringing academic knowledge and policy  
approaches about regulating technology a step forward by looking at  
issues from a multidisciplinary angle. Regulating technologies  
involves different regulatory approaches giving rise to fundamental  
questions.
For instance: Do biotechnology and ICT innovations alter people’s  
identity? Can ICT regulation profit from experiences in dealing with  
sensitive issues in genetics? How can policy-makers approach  
regulatory issues in the context of polycentric governance? What use  
is the heuristic of applying ‘off-line’ rules to the ‘on-line’  
environment, when ‘virtual’ and ‘real’ worlds converge? How can  
respect for human dignity and human rights be maintained in an era of  
human enhancement and surveillance? In what stage should moral values  
be taken into account in the design of technologies? If at all, which  
values?

Conference structure
Some 35 renowned invited speakers from different countries and from  
distinct disciplines – including law, ethics, politics, sociology,  
biotechnology, and information security – will provide plenary key- 
notes, or present papers in parallel sessions.
