*CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Beyond Checklist Approaches to Ethics in Design
[Workshop at CSCW 2020]*

(Apologies for any cross-posts)


Recent public discussions about technologies and social values have called
for greater consideration of ethics during technology development and
deployment, leading many organizations to create and promote compliance- or
checklist-oriented toolkits and frameworks to address values and ethical
issues. However, surfacing discussion and consideration of ethics in
broader, more open-ended ways during the design process may help surface
unique needs, social corner cases, or new or different understandings of
values and ethics.

This one-day virtual workshop aims to convene CSCW researchers working in a
wide range of domains including: values in design, design research, social
justice, work studies, machine learning, and others to propose and consider
new interventions and approaches to ethics in technology design that go
beyond formal checklist- and compliance-oriented approaches, with a focus
on ethics in practice.

To apply, please send a position paper (up to 4 pages, not including
references) to [log in to unmask] before Sept. 20, 2020 (papers
submitted before Aug. 31, 2020 will be given earlier consideration).
Position papers should be the legacy ACM Extended Abstract format (Word
/ LaTeX

Position papers may take the form of:

* Practice-based or methods pieces that explore approaches to addressing
ethics in design;
* Proposed activities or toolkits;
* Ideas for interventions, games, role-playing, theater, or art focused on
technology ethics;
* Original or proposed research related to ethics in design, or ethics in
organizational and work practice;
* Pictorials, design fictions, or other creative pieces that deal with
ethics in design;
* Additional formats, including essays that review historical approaches to
ethics in design, theory-building pieces, etc. Please feel free to email
organizers with questions or ideas.

The workshop will take place as part of the ACM Conference on
Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW)
<>, occurring virtually in October 2020. The
workshop will take place using Zoom or a similar remote video conference
platform. At least one author of each accepted position paper will be
required to register for the workshop. More information about this workshop
can be found at: Please email
