Dr. Bird served as the Special Assistant to the Provost and Vice President for Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) from 1992 to 2003. While at MIT she worked on the development of educational programs that addressed ethical issues in science and engineering, professional responsibilities, and ethical issues in research practice. She co-edits the international journal Science and Engineering Ethics which explores issues of direct concern to scientists and engineering related to both the practice and application of science and technology. Current research interests focus not only on neuroethics but also on the ethical, legal and social policy implications of research and technology in general. She lectures and consults on professional ethics, and the integration of the responsible conduct of research and ethics into science and engineering education and the development of training programs. Her theoretical and laboratory training have been complemented by work in areas of ethical and legal philosophy.

Call for Papers
ETHICOMP 2013 University of Southern Denmark, Kolding, Denmark, 12-14 June 2013
There is still a little time to submit your abstract for ETHICOMP 2013 for the remaining places left on this popular conference. It is a chance to engage with a supportive international network in the important area of acceptable ICT.
Since 1995 ETHICOMP has provided a forum to discuss the ethical and social issues surrounding ICT. ETHICOMP is an interdisciplinary community dedicated to exploring issues and seeking ways forward. Conferences are enjoyable, stimulating and highly interactive events. Collaborative ventures including co-authorship and funded research have been spawned by this supportive and inclusive network.
ETHICOMP 2013 will be hosted by the Institute of Business Communication and Information Science at University of Southern Denmark on the Kolding Campus. Local representatives Dr Anne Gerdes, and Gitte Møldrup, and international representative Professor William Fleischman will join the ETHICOMP co-founders Professor Terry Bynum and Professor Simon Rogerson as co-directors.
The overall theme for the ETHICOMP 2013 is “The possibilities of ethical ICT”. The aim is to explore from a range of perspectives the complex and often interrelated ethical and social issues surrounding pervasive ICT.
The conference has two broad themes.
Process concerns the activities of ICT professionals when undertaking research, development and service/product delivery. Four areas will be explored under this theme:
• Education and Training: e.g. e-learning; learning for life; digital tutors; robot learning; the nature and content of ethically sensitive ICT education and training • Design: e.g. value driven; participative • Governance: e.g. internet; closed networks; clouds • Conduct: e.g. professionals, users
Product concerns the outcome of professional ICT endeavor and the potential impact of these products on people, society and the environment.
• Application Areas and Impacts: e.g. social space; work place; environmental impacts and safeguards; health • Emerging Technologies: e.g. robotics; nano technology; welfare technology, artificial companions • Embedded ethical values • Technological Integrity
Interdisciplinary papers and those from new researchers and practitioners are encouraged. A paper might take a conceptual, applied, practical or historical focus. Case studies and reports on lessons learned in practice are welcomed.
How to submit
As in previous ETHICOMP conferences, papers written in English and not published nor submitted elsewhere will be accepted on the basis of an extended abstract of between 800 and 1000 words after a careful review by Programme Committee members. Whilst more than one paper from an author or co-authors is welcomed the final decision on which papers are accepted will probably lead to no more than three papers from a given author being accepted. This will give more opportunity for as many people as possible to participate in ETHICOMP 2013.
The first page of each submission must include the title, all of the authors’ names, affiliations, complete mailing addresses including email, telephone numbers, and a statement of commitment that one of the authors will present the paper at ETHICOMP 2013 in Denmark.
A submission lacking any of the above information or outside the range of 800-1000 word limit may not be considered by the Programme Committee for inclusion in the conference programme.
Please make submissions in the electronic form using EasyChair.
Abstracts must be submitted no later than 23 November 2012 to https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=ethicomp2013. You will have to create an EasyChair account if you do not already have one.
Authors will be informed of the decision of the Programme Committee by 21 December 2012.
If you require any further information please contact Professor Simon Rogerson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Brain Matters 3
Values at the Crossroads of Neurology, Psychiatry & Psychology
October 23-25, 2012
Hosted by the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio
Brain Matters 3 follows in the tradition of the two previous Brain Matters conferences in fostering further development in the field of neuroethics. Although abstracts will be elicited for presentations on a broad spectrum of neuroethics research, the primary themes of the plenary talks for the conference address ethical dilemmas in the treatment and research for conditions with neurological symptomatology but that are without identifiable biological correlates/causes. The conditions of interest are often framed as medically unexplained symptoms, non-specific etiologies, or purely psychological. These diagnoses include, but are not limited to, chronic pain disorders, psychogenic movement disorders, conversion disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and fibromyalgia. The complexities of suffering and disability experienced by individuals with these conditions are significant; including exposure to dangerous and futile treatments. Among clinicians, disagreement continues over which aspects of these conditions are “all in one’s head,” either literally or figuratively. Hidden value assumptions about causation permeate research studies and clinical decisions, and effect underlying treatment and care of patients. These assumptions have significant influence on the obligations, roles, and entitlements for patients and health care providers. Patients who suffer from these conditions are “orphaned” by specialties and largely ignored in bioethics discussions. Research abstracts will be solicited for oral as well as poster presentations.

Society for Ethics Across the Curriculum
14th International Conference Oct. 4-6, 2012 Grand Rapids, MI
Directors: Peggy Vandenberg (Grand Valley State University)
& Deborah Mower (Youngstown State University)
Michael Slote, University of Miami, author of Moral Sentimentalism,
and The Ethics of Care and Empathy
Conference Theme: “The Art of Morality:
Developing Moral Sensitivity Across the Curriculum”
This year’s theme is chosen in part because the dates of the conference correspond to the ARTPRIZE event in Grand Rapids which is an international art competition that brings 1200+ pieces of art to our city. The streets and parks are alive with art sculptures, performances, paintings and photography, and museums offer free admission to indoor and outdoor exhibits.
Because different fields such as medicine, business, law, social work, journalism, etc. vary in the kinds of social relations and engagements between professionals and their clients, developing moral sensitivity within each field may be something unique and akin to learning an art form. Being perceptive and empathetic to the needs of others and the moral demands of a situation are important skills for moral action and essential for personal development. How we are to teach students to engage in moral actions and to develop necessary sympathies, perceptual abilities, and reasoning skills are pressing questions. In terms of content and theory, what are we to teach our students across the curriculum? What content in our classrooms serves to develop moral sensitivity as a personal matter, and what is the relationship between moral sensitivity and reasoning? In terms of practice, how do we teach them? What specific exercises, strategies, service learning projects, or artistic media develop moral sensitivity, and are the practices akin to an art form or easily applicable across the curriculum?
Although the theme of the conference highlights the art of morality across the curriculum, submissions are not limited to the conference theme. Submissions (papers, abstracts or panel proposals) should be formatted for blind review and sent by July 30, 2012 to the Secretary- Treasurer of the Society, Donna Werner or by hard copy to Dr. Peggy Vandenberg, Philosophy Department, B-3 205 MAK, Grand Valley State University, Allendale, MI 49401, Phone: 616 331 2496.
The Society publishes Teaching Ethics and conference papers may be considered for publication in that journal or in a possible anthology.
