|[Nettime-nl] Tilting perspectives on regulating technologies - call for contributions|
call for contributions Tilting perspectives on regulating technologies organized by TILT – Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society to be held at Tilburg University the Netherlands, 10 - 11 December 2008 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? The conference will be organized along the line of four key themes. Regulatory strategies What can ICT regulation learn from regulating biotechnology and vice versa? Polycentric and multi actor governance Regulation and fundamental values Human enhancements Ambient Intelligence Identity Protecting societies Risk regulation Technological divides Protecting and hampering technologies Hindering and stimulating technologies through law Patents and open source Value-sensitive technology The conference will consist of some 20 lectures provided by invited speakers in plenary sessions as well as in a number of workshops. In the workshops also submitted papers will be presented. We invite you to contribute actively to the conference by submitting original and unpublished work to be presented in the workshops. Contributers will be selected on the basis of a full paper review by the Programme Committee. Accepted papers will be available for the conference participants in print. Furthermore, papers will be considered for publication in a new peer-reviewed journal edited by TELOS and TILT (starting early 2009), as well as in an edited volume to be published by a renowned publisher after the conference allowing for revisions of the individual papers due to the discussions during the conference. Papers must be written in English and should be between 10 and 12 pages in the style provided at the conference web site. Authors should submit a PDF file to the conference system available at the conference website (http://www.tilburguniversity.nl/tilt/conference). Papers are solicited on the topics of the workshops. The papers may reflect on the indicated themes from the perspectives of different disciplines (law, ethics, social sciences etc.). They may also focus on more specific subtopics such as: – Modalities of regulation (Law, Regulation through technology, market, social morality) – Regulatory innovation – Involving Different Actors and Stakeholders in the Regulatory Processes – The Role of Enterprises in the Regulation of Technology – Identity management – Technology neutrality – Coevolution of Technology, Society and Culture – Ambient intelligence and the distinctiveness of persons Abstracts submission (optional): 1 May 2008 Full paper submission: 26 September 2008 Acceptance notice: 31 October 2008 Submission full paper for conference preprint: 14 November 2008 Submission of selected papers for Journal or Book 31 January 2009 The full call for papers is available at http://www.tilburguniversity.nl/tilt/conference General chair Ronald Leenes – TILT, Tilburg University, the Netherlands Programme committee co-chairs Han Somsen – TILT, Tilburg University, the Netherlands Anton Vedder – TILT, Tilburg University, the Netherlands Simone van der Hof – TILT, Tilburg University, the Netherlands Programme committee Roger Brownsword – King's College London, UK Dan L.
