November 19, 2015 at 6:41 pm Leave a comment

The University of Miami School of Law hosts the We Robot 2016 conference on law and policy relating to Robotics on April 1-2, 2016.

Proposed papers should be submitted via a 1-3 page abstract outlining the proposed paper and a C.V. of the author(s) via the conferencing system at Do NOT put any author identifying information on the proposal itself, as the conference has moved to a system of anonymous reviews this year.  Be sure to choose the “paper” track for your upload.  Original submission deadline was November 1, 2015, however, the conference will continue to accept We Robot 2016 paper proposals on a rolling, space-available, basis until they have made up the full program

We Robot 2016 seeks contributions by academics, practitioners, and others in the form of scholarly papers or demonstrations of technology or other projects. We Robot fosters conversations between the people designing, building, deploying and using robots, and the people who design or influence the legal and social structures in which robots will operate. This conference will build on the growing body of scholarship that explores the increasing sophistication and decision-making capabilities of robots, in collaboration with humans and autonomously, and the increasingly widespread deployment of robots everywhere from the home, to hospitals, to public spaces, to the battlefield. All of this disrupts existing legal regimes or requires rethinking of various policy issues. This year the program committee is especially interested in papers that discuss issues relating to the deployment of robots in positions that put them in direct contact with people, but as always remain open to cutting-edge works on any topics fitting within their larger mission.
