TUdelftEIT ICT Labs’ Conference Mediating Presence: Mediating Justice 4 December 2013

@ TBM & Library TU Delft

Announcement: EIT ICT Labs’ Conference Mediating Presence & Call for abstracts

Delft University of Technology will host the EIT ICT Labs’ conference ‘Mediating Justice: the changing nature of presence in the era of ubiquitous technology’.

Closing the research programme Mediating Presence, this conference aims to accelerate into the future and identify trends and implications of possible future systems of law. Can a courtroom be mediated? Will networks generate new systems of law? Is a new dynamic between fact and fiction emerging?

Results of contributions and deliberations are to be published in a special issue of AI & Society, Journal of Knowledge, Culture and Communication (eds.: prof.dr. Inge van der Vlies, dr. Caroline Nevejan, dr. Satinder Gill). Several authors have submitted abstracts in advance and will discuss these.

Presentations and short design workshops are solicited. EIT ICT Labs’s university faculty and students, artists and members of societal organisations are all invited to participate.

The detailed programme and registration will follow shortly.
