The Center for Law, Science & Innovation at Arizona State University is calling for abstracts for the 6th Annual Conference on the Governance of Emerging Technologies & Science (GETS): Law, Policy and Ethics. The conference will be held May 16-18, 2018.
Deadline: January 31, 2018. Submit proposals here.
The conference will consist of plenary and session presentations and discussions on regulatory, governance, legal, policy, social and ethical aspects of emerging technologies, including (but not limited to) nanotechnology, synthetic biology, gene editing, biotechnology, genomics, personalized medicine, digital health, human enhancement technologies, blockchain, cryptocurrencies, data analytics, telecommunications, information technologies, surveillance technologies, technology & privacy, cybersecurity, geoengineering, neuroscience, military technologies, artificial intelligence, algorithms, autonomous cars, and robotics. The conference is premised on the belief that there is much to be learned and shared from and across the governance experience and proposals for these various emerging technologies. We particularly encourage abstracts relating to this year’s two priority themes: (i) internet of things, and (ii) success stories in public engagement, international coordination, or soft law.
