CEPE 2005: Ethics of New Information Technology

I’ve been accepted to present at CEPE 2005: Sixth International Conference of Computer Ethics: Philosophical Enquiry hosted by the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands. The conference theme is “Ethics of New Information Technology”:

Information technology is currently moving well beyond the familiar mainframe, PC and laptop computer paradigms. We are witnessing the mobile revolution, the ubiquitous computing revolution, as well as revolutionary new uses of IT in biomedicine, education, the fight against crime and terrorism, entertainment and other areas. We are anticipating a nanotechnology revolution, as well as a convergence between information technology, biotechnology and nanotechnology. These new developments require ethical reflection, possibly even before their consequences become visible.

I will be presenting my reasearch on the privacy implications of vehicle safety communication (VSC) technologies.
