Value Sensitive Design: Charting the Next Decade
From Monday 14 November through Friday 18 November 2016
Lorentz Center@ Oort – Leiden

Scientific Topic Value sensitive design offers a framework to account for human values throughout the design process. Seeking to deepen and extend value sensitive design, this workshop will bring together researchers from AI, computer science, ethics, human-centered computing, law, philosophy, and the social sciences. Workshop participants will discuss and reflect on their experiences using value sensitive design and chart the next decade of its development and its diffusion to new application areas.

Workshop Format Lorentz Center organizes scientific meetings for small groups of up to 55 participants, including both senior and junior scientists. Lorentz Center meetings dedicate a considerable amount of time to discussion sessions, thus stimulating an interactive atmosphere and encouraging collaborations between participants. This format typically generates extensive debates and enables significant progress to be made within the research topic of the meeting.

Lorentz Center Facilities The meeting is held at the Lorentz Center, located at the Faculty of Science campus of Leiden University, the Netherlands. The Lorentz Center provides each participant with office space and wireless internet access (LINUX and Windows). Lorentz Center also provides various practical services for the participants, such as arranging accommodations at the nearby hotel “Van der Valk Hotel Leiden” at a special rate (€ 82 including breakfast and taxes), visa assistance and bike rental. For further information, please refer to our website:<>.

Costs and Refunds Lorentz Center does not charge registration fees. In addition, Lorentz Center hosts a welcome reception and a workshop dinner, both free of charge.

Application We hope that you are interested in participating in the workshop. If so, we kindly ask that you submit a statement of interest by July 20 via the workshop webpage. Statements of interest describe who you are, why you would like to attend the workshop, your experience with value sensitive design, specific topics you would like to discuss during the workshop, etc. They should be submitted as per instructions on the conference webpage:

July 31 you will receive a notification of acceptance for the workshop.

For further information, please do not hesitate to contact me. As the coordinator of all practical matters involved in this Lorentz Center workshop, I would be more than happy to answer your questions.

Kind regards,
