Call for papers

7th Conference on Technology Ethics (TETHICS2024)
6.–7.11.2024 @ Tampere University (Tampere, Finland)

TETHICS 2024 calls for papers that present scientific and/or practical contributions on topics and themes related to information systems and ethics broadly construed.

Suitable topics and themes include but are not limited to:

  • Data and AI ethics
  • Ethical design of information systems
  • Ethics in software development
  • Philosophical foundations of the ethics of information systems
  • Technology ethics in specific application domains (e.g., education, medicine, military)
  • Ethics of automation and digitalization
  • Business ethics and technology ethics
  • Teaching technology ethics
  • Ethical regulation and governance of information systems

We encourage people from different fields, philosophical and scientific disciplines, cultural backgrounds, and underrepresented communities to participate and submit their work. To provide early-career opportunities, TETHICS 2024 also encourages PhD students and undergraduate students to submit their work and participate in the conference.

A poster session will also be organized, providing an opportunity for students and early-career researchers to present research plans, initial work, and tentative findings. If you wish to be only included in the poster session without submitting a paper, please contact conference co-chair Otto Sahlgren directly (

Submitted papers are expected to be include original content of good quality, and to meet applicable research ethical standards. Working papers are also welcomed, provided the submitted work meets the aforementioned criteria.
