Call for Papers
2007 Workshop on Philosophy & Engineering
Delft University of Technology (TUDelft), The Netherlands
October 29-31, 2007 (Monday-Wednesday)
Engineering Meets Philosophy, and Philosophy Meets Engineering
On October 19, 2006 a working group on Philosophy and Engineering was convened at MIT to discuss the need for greater interaction between philosophers and engineers. The result was an agreement to move forward with a workshop to encourage reflection on engineering, engineers, and technology by philosophers and engineers.
The first Workshop on Philosophy & Engineering (WPE-2007) will be held in the Department of Philosophy, TUDelft, 29-31 October 2007 (Monday-Wednesday). Sessions will include talks by invited and selected speakers as well as a number of special sessions.
Extended abstracts (1-2 pages) are invited for submission in one of three tracks:
§ Philosophy (Track chair: Carl Mitcham)
§ Philosophical Reflections of Practitioners (Track chair: Billy V. Koen)
§ Ethics (Track co-chairs: Michael Davis & P. Aarne Vesilind)
Submissions will be reviewed by the workshop committee. Those accepted for presentation at the workshop will be scheduled for 30-minutes talks (inclusive of Q&A) at the workshop. All accepted abstracts will published online on the workshop website (http://www-illigal.ge.uiuc.edu/wpe), and a printed volume will be assembled following the workshop in conjunction with a major publisher.
Extended abstracts should be submitted (in doc or pdf format) by 17 August 2007 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
