ETICA project will organise the “The Future as we see it: Emerging ICTs and resulting ethical issues” conference on April 13, 2010 in Rovira and Virgili University, Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain.
The prospect of new and emerging technologies is an exciting one, not least because of the potential developments and improvements they promise to bring to our lives. Enhanced better health, the allure of new forms of friendships, the fight against crime, the potential for better and more accessible education, an improved environment as a result of new technologies; all give a sense of excitement and optimism of what might be. However, this sense of what might be often overshadows the need to critically examine the ethical issues that may result. The conference intends to explore these issues with international scholars who have an interest in emerging technologies and ethical issues.
The conference will be held in conjunction with the ETHICOMP 2010 conference.
