AGAINST robot dystopias: thinking through the ethical, legal and societal issues of robotics and automation (AGAINST-20)

A full-day ICRA 2020 workshop
June 4th, 2020
Paris, France

Submission deadline: March 23, 2020

We welcome the submission of extended abstracts (2 pages) related to the workshop's topics of interest. Both unpublished original contributions and previously published work may be submitted. We specifically encourage submission of position papers that address the ethical issues involved in robot design, deployment and use; as well as the techniques which will be required to avoid or alleviate these issues. These papers will be used to initiate discussion on the topics during the workshop, and will be presented both as short oral presentations and posters.

We accept various kinds of papers:
1) Discussion papers (discussing an ethical/societal/legal issue related to automation and robotics)
2) Method papers (introducing a technical method to address or to account for an ethical concern)
3) User study papers (investigating user perceptions or interactions with a system)
4) Special: Dystopia papers (see website)

Topics of interest

- Ethical algorithms and autonomous systems
- Social and societal issues in robotics and automation
- Fairness, Accountability and Transparency in robotics and automation
