In our knowledge society, our networked selves continually create and are created through data. In light of the ubiquity of data in  the contemporary world, the ethical creation, dissemination, use, and storage of data continues to be an area of concern.  The focus of the 2017 roundtable will be on all aspects of data (writ large) and ethics.

The Information Ethics Roundtable is a yearly conference which brings together researchers from disciplines such as philosophy, information science, communications, public administration, anthropology and law to discuss ethical issues such as information privacy, intellectual property, intellectual freedom, and censorship.

Suggested areas of inquiry include, but are not limited to:

    The primacy of data over the individual
    Reinforcement of personal preferences through surveillance of personal data
    Responsibilities and ethical obligations for data curation and sharing
    Privacy and surveillance (including the NSA disclosures)
    “Big Data” research and the ethical treatment of human subjects
    Moral implications of the Quantified Self
    Ethics in data science instruction/pedagogy
    Social justice and data collection

We invite both individual and group proposals:

(1) For individual paper proposals, please submit a 500-word abstract of your paper.

(2) For panel, fishbowl, or group proposals, please identify participants with a 100-250 word biography and submit a 1500 word abstract of your topic and treatment.
