Creating, Changing, and Coalescing Ways of Life With Technologies

SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Sopot

24-26 September 2018

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 approximately every 18 months. ETHICOMP considers computer ethics, conceived broadly, to include philosophical, professional, and practical aspects of the field. Our next conference will be a jointly hosted event by the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology (PJAIT) and SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities, in Tricity, Poland in September of 2018.

PJAIT was set up in Warsaw in 1994, by the Foundation for the Development of Computer Techniques which implemented the agreement between the governments of Poland and Japan of 1993. Gdańsk Branch Faculty of IT was launched in 2007 and offers undergraduate studies in Computer Science and in New Media Arts. In Warsaw, PJAIT offers studies in Computer Science, Information Management, New Media Arts, Interior Design, Culture of Japan and postgraduate studies and courses. Computer science faculties of PJAIT recognise the importance of the social and psychological aspects of computing systems and their development. One of the interesting projects in this area is LivingLab – a project that aims to face the challenges of the ageing population in modern computerised society.

SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities was established in 1996. The University has been ranked by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education as the leading higher education institution offering Social Sciences programs in Poland.

Since their inception both SWPS and PJAIT have been oriented towards research projects that promise impact on the real world. Recently both partners discovered the common field of interest in the area of user experience – a movement that puts the needs of humans at the centre of the process of information system development. This is consistent with ETHICOMP’s holistic approach to society and technology.

Submission Information

As in previous ETHICOMP conferences, papers written in English and not published nor submitted elsewhere will be accepted on the basis of an extended abstract of between 1000 and 1500 words after a careful, double-blind review overseen by the Program Committee. Authors may submit more than one abstract, but acceptance of multiple proposals by a single author or co-author will be weighed against available space to ensure we can include as many authors as practical for ETHICOMP 2018. Final papers, due approximately four months after notification of acceptance, should be no more than 8000 words.

Extended abstracts, stripped of identifying information to facilitate the double-blind process, should be submitted to EasyChair.

If you submit an abstract with author names and/or other identifying information, it may not be accepted.
