Call for Papers

Conference on Technology Ethics

– Tethics 2023

18.–19.10.2023 @ Turku, Finland

The 6th Conference on Technology Ethics aims to promote networking and research as a multidisciplinary field that reaches beyond the borders of academia. We encourage authors to consider how they wish to communicate with different audiences: academics, technology professionals, and non-professionals. Such outreach is essential for fostering the ethical use of technology in society.

Tethics 2023 will again be scientific but casual. We expect the submitted papers to be scientific in nature and style but hope that conference presentations of accepted papers will be tailored to a broader audience.

Tethics 2023 is seeking scientific and practical contributions from the field of technology and ethics. As we would like to encourage people from different fields to participate, issues of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • AI ethics
  • Data economy and ethics
  • eHealth ethics
  • Ethical implications of digitalisation
  • Business ethics
  • Ethics and software business
  • Ethics in the design and development of technology
  • The teaching of technology ethics
  • Sustainable use of technology
  • Technology regulation and ethics

We welcome both full papers (10-15 pages, or 5000 to 7500 words) and short papers (5-9 pages, 2500 to 4500 words).

All submitted papers will go through a double-blind review process. Authors of the accepted papers will be invited to revise their work before final submission if necessary. Both full and short papers will be published in open-access format in CEUR Workshop Proceedings under a Creative Commons licence, leaving the copyrights to the author(s).

The conference is organised by the Future Ethics research group of the University of Turku.
