Ethicomp / CEPE 2017 Call for Tracks

News | 25-02-2016 12:16

Call for Tracks: Ethicomp/CEPE 2017
Università degli Studi di Torino (University of Turin), Turin, Italy
May, 2017

The Ethicomp/CEPE 2017 planning committee invites proposals for program tracks.

Proposals are submitted by filling out this form:

The deadline for full consideration of track proposals is March 31, 2016.

The Ethicomp series of conferences fosters an international community of scholars and technologists, including computer professionals and business professionals from industry. Since 1995, conferences have been scheduled across Europe and Asia, with our main events coming every 18 months. Ethicomp considers computer ethics conceived broadly to include philosophical, professional, and practical aspects of the field. CEPE (Computer Ethics Philosophical Enquiry), as the name implies, is more narrowly focused on the philosophical aspects of computer ethics. However, the CEPE community overlaps considerably with the Ethicomp community, and it makes sense for the two conference series to work together. In light of this, our next conference will be a jointly sponsored event, hosted at the Università degli Studi di Torino (University of Turin), Turin, Italy in May of 2017.

Tracks offer members of the Ethicomp and CEPE communities an opportunity to participate in setting the program for our upcoming conference by proposing and taking responsibility for specific topics of interest. Track chairs will be responsible for organizing the review of papers submitted to their tracks through the EasyChair conference management website in accordance with conference review guidelines. You will need to assign at least 2 reviewers for a double blind peer review, per extended abstract submission and ensure high quality reviews. Decisions regarding which papers to accept will be made by track chairs in concert the conference chair and program chair of the appropriate conference.

Tracks will be considered for inclusion according to the following criteria:
- fit with conference
- relevance to the general field
- quality of the problem description / description of the theme
- likelihood of attracting submissions
- likelihood of attracting an audience
- likelihood of attracting new scholars or stakeholders to the conference

The submission deadline for track proposals is 31st of March, 2016. The ETHICOMP steering committee will review proposals and choose appropriate ones. Proposers will be notified of the committee’s decision before early May, when the call for papers will be launched.

The tentative and rough timetable of the conference is as follows:

Call for abstracts: early May 2016
Initial submission: early September 2016
Reviews due: mid October 2016
Paper acceptance / rejection: late October 2016
Final full paper submissions: early February 2017
Conference: May 22-25, 2017.
