7th International Conference on Information Law (ICIL) 2016

Broadening the Horizons of Information Law and Ethics - Α Time for Inclusion

February 22-23, 2016, Pretoria, South Africa

The 7th ICIL is co-organized by the African Center of Excellence on Information Ethics, University of Pretoria, the Ionian University and the International Society for Ethics and Information Technology (INSEIT). It is morally sponsored by the NEXA Center for Internet and Society, the Institute for Legal Informatics (IRI) and the International Center for Information Ethics.

 

The 7th ICIL aims at the presentation of papers on a variety of subjects within information law and also, information ethics. The conference will host invited presentations and refereed paper presentations. We are interested in papers on intellectual property, data protection, freedom of information, individual rights and information, privacy, cyberlaw and cyberethics, media law and ethics, digital divide and information technology, e-government, surveillance, intellectual freedom, open access, digital divide and other. We are also particularly interested in papers on the historical development of information laws and ethical theory and we would also consider papers dealing with the social, political or psychological aspects of information.

 

Selected papers from 7th ICIL will be published, with the consent of the authors, in a special volume of Ethics and Information Technology (Springer) and the International Journal of Technology Policy and Law (Inderscience publishers). We will also publish all accepted papers, with the consent of the authors, in a separate volume of proceedings, published with an international publisher.

 

It is a deeply honor for the organizers of the 7th ICIL to accommodate as Keynote Speakers: the Founder and Director of the International Center for Information Ethics Professor Rafael Capurro and the Chair of the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA)'s Freedom of Access to Information and Freedom of Expression (FAIFE) core activity Emeritus Professor Paul Sturges.The International Conference on Information Law and Ethics (ICIL) first took place in 2008, in Corfu, Greece, funded by the European Community. ICIL was born in relation to the graduate course “Information law and ethics”, taught at the Ionian University, in Corfu and Athens, Greece since 2005. From a conference with twenty international speakers in 2008, ICIL has reached great numbers of speakers and participants, over 130 in the last 2014 Conference in Thessaloniki, with four parallel sessions and special sessions, simultaneously hosting other major events such as Philoweb 2014.

 

ICIL, since 2008, has become a major international conference dealing exclusively with the legal and ethical aspects of information, co-organized by the Ionian University (School of Information Science) and the International Society for Ethics and Information Technology (INSEIT) and morally supported by the International Center for Information Ethics, the NEXA Center for Internet and Society and the Institute for Legal Informatics (IRI).

 

ICIL looks at the concept of information from a multidisciplinary point of view. Information law and ethics cover the concept of information as such and therefore, irrespective of the medium via this information is being transferred. It is, therefore, not limited to the exploration of digital information and seeks the roots of information law and ethics in the ancient Greek world of freedom of speech in agora and also even earlier, in the paintings by humans of the caves. An excellent historical presentation of the field can be found in the site of the International Center of Information Ethics.

 

In addition, ICIL has instituted a Young Scholars Forum, aiming at helping young researchers presenting their work in an international conference. Also, it has hosted a series of Special Sessions, for example on Museum Ethics, Arts and Ethics, Libraries and Intellectual Capital, Bibliometrics, Law and Cryptography and others.

 

Furthermore, ICIL has published proceedings as printed volumes, distributed or given to all ICIL speakers and INSEIT members free of charge, every year since 2009. For a list of the proceedings until today please see: http://icil.gr/2014/proceedings.

 

Abstracts deadline: 15.10.2015

************************************************************************

Introduction
------------------
Robot ethics is a relatively new domain in which various scholars explore the ethical issues facing computer scientists, engineers, programmers, developers, ethicists and philosophers. There are many different approaches for addressing the ethical issues related to robots (e.g., in both retrospective and prospective manners) as well as many different approaches to what ethics means in relation to robots (e.g., addressing quality of life issues versus usability and acceptance issues).

Social robotics researchers need to address legal, societal and ethical issues before robots become widespread within our society. Not only should researchers focus on preventing undesired outcomes, but they also need to investigate the social roles that robots can (not) or should (not) perform in the future according to the opinions of potential future users and in the light of the ethical and societal values at stake. When ordinary people start using autonomous technologies, such as robots, in their everyday lives, robotics researchers need to map all possible interaction scenarios and their potential consequences for both individual users and society as a whole. If the rise of robotics is similar to that of personal computers a few decades ago, we can expect some important legal, societal and ethical issues to emerge from robotics as well. Therefore, robotics researchers need to attend to these issues if we want to anticipate the potential (negative) consequences of the ubiquitous use of robots in our society as well as to design robots that foster our preferred ethical and societal values.


Aim of the workshop
------------------
This workshop aims to bring together HRI scholars from multiple disciplines to stress the need to incorporate the users’ needs not only from a usability perspective but also from an ethical perspective. We therefore believe it is vital to involve prospective users as active testers in the design process. Their opinions and perceptions help researchers, designers, and engineers to create social robots that fit the special needs and demands of potential future users. We believe that also philosophers, legal scholars, policy makers should be involved in the deliberation process about the design of future robots.

2015-05-01 | Call for Papers ECREA Symposium Political Agency in the Digital Age: Media, Participation and Democracy

posted 16 Sep 2015, 02:37 by Lola Fernández Santos   [ updated 16 Sep 2015, 02:37 ]

ECREA Communication and Democracy Conference 2015 9-10 October 2015, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark

Deadline for submission is 1 May 2015

Research on media and politics has traditionally tended towards separating the sphere of politics from political processes in other societal spheres, focusing on parliamentarian politics and formal, institutionalised interest group politics (e.g. unions). At the same time, there has been a tendency to focus on elites, whether political, corporate, media or cultural. With the emergence of digital media, the research agenda within the field of media and politics research is shifting towards exploring interrelations between institutionalised politics and political processes in other societal spheres, and moving beyond elites to also include =93ordinary=94 people. The personalization of digital media and the rise of user-generated content have led to an increased interest in personal self-expression of citizens at an individual level as a political act. While this represents an important development, it also warrants fundamental questions about what counts as politics and who count as political actors. At the same time euphoric accounts of the potential of digital media for political agency are questioned critically both in terms of actual potential and the wider structures in which they are embedded.

We are seeking for contributions that address questions of shifting agency in connection with changing media technologies, while considering a dialectical relationship between social and media-related change. Contributions could address =but are not limited to the following topics

  *   Social movement/radical/alternative media
  *   Digital activism
  *   Materiality of media participation
  *   Spaces of participation and protest
  *   Civic resilience in times of crisis
  *   Digital media uses in extra-parliamentarian and non-institutionalized politics
  *   Digital media representations of extra-parliamentarian and non-institutionalized politics
  *   Digital media at the intersections of traditional politics and social movements
  *   DIY citizenship and digital media
  *   Performance and political agency
  *   Everyday life and civic culture
  *   Popular culture and civic engagement
  *   Digitization and individualization

2015-09-30 | Call for Papers for Vol. 24 (12/2015) "Ethics of Big Data"

posted 28 Jul 2015, 02:05 by Lola Fernández Santos   [ updated 16 Oct 2015, 05:52 ]

Call for Papers

Ethics of Big Data


Call for Papers for Vol. 24 (12/2015)


  • Deadline for extended abstracts: September 30, 2015
  • Notification of acceptance to authors: October 15, 2015
  • Deadline for full articles: November 15, 2015
  • Deadline for revised articles: December 31, 2015
  • Publication: January, 2016


On February 16, 2012, the New York Times published an article entitled 'How Companies Learn Your Secrets' in which it was revealed that the American retailing giant Target had developed a range of predictive analysis tools which could potentially assist in identifying pregnant customers. The article told the story of a man who inadvertently discovered his teenage daughter’s pregnancy only after seeing the company's directed marketing offers to her. When the subsequent, primarily online squabble about corporate malfeasance and business overreach subsided, the article seemed to confirm what we already suspected: our most mundane, everyday activities leave extensive and valuable 'digital footprints' which are in turn used to monitor consumer behaviour, market products and so on. The "capacity to search aggregate and cross-reference" (Boyd and Crawford, 2012, p.663) these seemingly innocuous footprints has come to be labelled "big data", an innovation that seems to increasingly complicate the distinction between the digital and the physical. Given such circumstances people are beginning to wonder whether it is possible, desirable or necessary to be able to disconnect one from the other. Should a "right to be forgotten" be the very precondition upon which privacy is constructed for the digital age? Is it even possible to be forgotten? Who owns these footprints and how are they managed? Does the commodification of digital footprints represent a transi-tion towards a kind of 'algorithmic capitalism' or 'algorithmic governmentality'?

Capturing data in order to more efficiently sell goods and services is obviously just one aspect of the application of big data. Edward Snowden's leaked documents revealed, amongst other things, the uneasy relationship between the expansion of big data processes and intensifying global regimes of surveillance. Indeed, the seemingly innocuous activities of searching, aggregating and cross-referencing information combined with the vagueness of the term "big data" itself seems only to obscure and undermine the complexity of the broad range of methods and applications necessarily required for the accumulation, retention and analysis of such "data". One such practice highlighted by the Snowden revelations is the capturing of metadata—informational by-products generated by online activity including recording of IP addresses, identities of contacts, geo-locational data, durations of calls and so forth. Such metadata is disclosed unknowingly and recorded automatically and retains centrality in the generalization of what Mayer-Schönberger and Cukier (2013) call "datafication" - the rendering of all human behaviour into an analysable form in order to predict and pre-empt human action. As well as being used by states to identify possible threats to security, big data can also be made productive for the public good: researchers can undoubtedly see the potential benefits of gaining access to such vast and detailed records but gaining access is itself beset with profound ethical complexities. Perhaps this is the reason why the EU Court of Justice has recently suggested that expansive metadata retention "interferes in a particularly serious manner with the fundamental rights to respect for private life and to the protection of personal data". Still many corporations, governments and universities are keen to continue to explore and exploit big data for their own ends. The question that we invariably have to ask is, at what cost?




Possible Topics and Questions

This issue of IRIE attempts to explore the political, social, and ethical dimensions of big data. We welcome the exploration of, while not restricting to, the following subject areas:

  • Big data and emerging regimes of mass surveillance
