In October 2020 we organised the first international conference on Changing Values, Changing Technologies. We are happy to announce the second edition, which will be an integral part of the 2023 Forum on Philosophy, Engineering, and Technology (fPET 2023) and will be held at the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands from 19-21 April 2023.
fPET 2023 will bring together engineers and philosophers to address the challenges of engineering in a changing world. We are currently witnessing disruptive changes due to climate change, pandemics and war. Technological developments in, for example, geo-engineering, artificial intelligence, biotechnology and neuro-technology may contribute to such disruptions but also help to better deal with them.
The conference will provide the opportunity to meet like-minded researchers and present and discuss research on the intersection of engineering and philosophy, addressing the theme of technology and engineering in a changing world, broadly understood. You can now submit abstracts and panel proposals.
Special track: value change
fPET 2023 will feature a special track on Changing Values, Changing Technologies. This track will introduce a novel perspective on value change. We will discuss the nature of value change and illuminate the implications for the practice of, research on and teaching in engineering. For this track, we are cooperating with the research project Designing for Changing Values, that has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 788321. For this track we invite papers that present recent research on the theme of value change and technology. If you want to submit to this special track, you can indicate during submission.
- January 15, 2023: Deadline for abstract submission
- February 15: Decision about acceptance
