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 

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 31^st 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.
