Call for papers – NEW Extended Deadline: January 18, 2020

The 2020 Forum on Philosophy, Engineering and Technology (fPET) welcomes abstract submissions. The mission of fPET is to encourage reflection on engineering, engineers, and technology; and to build bridges between existing organizations of philosophers, engineers and scholars in related fields.

Abstracts (500 words max) are invited for submission in five tracks:

  • Track 1: Philosophy of engineering and technology
  • Track 2: Ethics related to engineering and technology
  • Track 3: Philosophy / ethics in engineering education
  • Track 4: Value sensitive design and responsible innovation
  • Track 5: Interdisciplinary reflections on engineering practice

In the interdisciplinary Track 5, fPET2020 welcomes submissions such as a) maintenance in engineering, including ethical and epistemological issues, b) modularity in engineering systems and designs, and c) how science fiction and art can inform our understanding of engineering.

Abstracts are welcome preferably in English, but are also welcome in Spanish and Portuguese. (Some special sessions will be planned in Spanish/Portuguese. In case they are accepted, we will ask authors to prepare a translation of it into the other two languages for the abstract book. We will provide help with such translations if needed.)

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. Abstracts accepted will be published on the fPET website. Podium presentations will be 30 minutes, including Q&A. Following the conference, we expect to invite selected papers for publication in an edited volume.

Submit abstracts electronically at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fpet2020 by January 18, 2020. 500 word maximum abstracts length excludes citations. Notification of acceptances will be sent by March 7, 2020.
