(New) 19 December 2023, RDT Keywords Project: ‘Responsibility’Location: Bushuis/Oost-Indisch HuisTarget audience: ResearchersCosts: FreeDeadline: Monday 18 December 2023
What do we mean by 'responsibility' in the digital age? How do disciplines differ in their understanding of responsibility? Where do they meet?
We are excited to invite you to our second edition of the Responsible Digital Transformations Keywords Project, with focus on 'responsibility'. Marjolein Lanzing, Jelle Zuidema and Somendra Narayan will share their views on responsibility with us, and we invite you to join a lively interdisciplinary discussion.For more information, see here or at https://rdt.uva.nl/content/events/2023/12/rdt-monthly-meeting-keyword-edition-responsible.html or contact Cheyenne Fiene at c.fiene at uva.nl.
(New) 21 December 2023, PhD-in-DaDriH Seminar Series, Maud van LierSpeaker: Maud van LierTitle: Modelling Artificial AgencyLocation: Online
Concepts in Motion (ILLC) is hosting a new seminar series: PhD-in-DaDriH. Our speakers are all PhD students in philosophy, or in the history of philosophy or philosophical ideas. The focus of this series is data, and the speakers have in common that their research is, at least in part, data-driven. We aim for this series to be an excellent opportunity for PhD students to make their work know, to build bridges between like-minded researchers across universities, and to collaboratively address data related challenges in their research.
The seminars will take place every three weeks. Speakers will introduce their project, present the role data plays in it, and explain how they go about collecting, cleaning, enriching, refining, visualizing, publishing, linking, etc. their data. Typically, a seminar will last 90 minutes, with 20 minutes for the speakers presentation and 70 minutes for Q&A and open discussion. Our first speaker is Maud van Lier (University of Konstanz) who is setting up a corpus-based investigation of the concept of artificial agency.For more information, see https://conceptsinmotion.org/whats-on/axiom-whats-on/phd-in-dadrih-seminar-series/ or contact Thijs Ossenkoppele at thijs.ossenkoppele at uva.nl.

9 - 11 April 2024, 1st Conference of the European Network for Digital Democracy (EDDY), RotterdamLocation: RotterdamDeadline: Thursday 1 February 2024
In recent years, digital democracy has become a subject of academic research and is being put into practice around the world. However, the scientific investigations and practices of digital democracy are currently still living mostly in separate universes. The aim of this conference is to further advance digital democracy, by bringing together academics and practitioners actively working on or with digital democracy. This way we want to foster collaboration and knowledge exchange.For more information, see https://www.eddy-network.eu/in-person-conference/.
(New) 8 - 12 July 2024, Computability in Europe 2024: Twenty years of theoretical and practical synergies, Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation: Amsterdam, The NetherlandsDeadline: Saturday 10 February 2024
CiE (Computability in Europe) is a European association of mathematicians, logicians, computer scientists, philosophers, physicists and others interested in new developments in computability and their underlying significance for the real world.
The CiE conferences serve as an interdisciplinary forum for research in all aspects of computability, foundations of computer science, logic, and theoretical computer science, as well as the interplay of these areas with practical issues in computer science and with other disciplines such as biology, mathematics, philosophy, or physics. CiE 2024 will be an anniversary event. It is the 20th conference organized by Ci , in the same place as the first edition, Amsterdam.
