please consider submitting an abstract for the following workshop.
Given the increasing interest in human-machine and human-robot
communication, this might be of interest for some.
Call for Abstracts: Workshop on the Ethical, Legal and Social Issues of
Robots in Therapy and Education
Held on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 in Barcelona (from 9.00 am-1.00 pm)
What is it about?
This 4-hour workshop at the 2016 New Friends Conference addresses
the ethical, legal and social (ELS) implications of robots in therapy
and education in a constructive and proactive manner. It takes up
important ELS challenges that come with the introduction of robots in
therapy and education. More specifically, it deals with human dignity,
privacy and liability aspects. These overarching ELS issues - dignity,
privacy, liability - shall be discussed in an open workshop format,
laying the focus on solutions and leaving sufficient time for
discussion. Researchers from all disciplines as well as practitioners
are encouraged to submit abstracts (see below).
The workshop is arranged in an interdisciplinary manner to allow
participants to explore issues directly connected to their own areas of
expertise while also providing the opportunity to engage with
professionals from a wide range of disciplines.
