2020 IEEE Global Engineering Education Conference (EDUCON)

The IEEE Global Engineering Education Conference (EDUCON) 2020 is the eleventh in a series of conferences that rotate among central locations in IEEE Region 8 (Europe, Middle East and North Africa). EDUCON is one of the flagship conferences of the IEEE Education Society. It seeks to foster the area of Engineering Education under the leadership of the IEEE Education Society.


2019 IEEE International Professional Communication Conference (ProComm)

The scope of the conference includes the study, development, improvement, and promotion ofeffective techniques for preparing, organizing, processing, editing, collecting, conserving,teaching, and disseminating any form of technical information by and to individuals and groupsby any method of communication. It also includes technical, scientific, industrial, and otheractivities that contribute to the techniques and products used in this field.

Zeroing in on ethical issues in nanotechnology

Proceedings of the IEEE, 2003

Setting aside exaggerated notions of both the benefits and harms to be expected from nanotechnologies, we need to focus ethical investigation on specific initiatives at the nano scale that are already underway or planned. The aims are to anticipate ethical issues likely to arise in specific cases, to foster sensitivity to ethical issues and responsibility among nano specialists and policy ...

  • Zeroing in on ethical issues in nanotechnology

    Setting aside exaggerated notions of both the benefits and harms to be expected from nanotechnologies, we need to focus ethical investigation on specific initiatives at the nano scale that are already underway or planned. The aims are to anticipate ethical issues likely to arise in specific cases, to foster sensitivity to ethical issues and responsibility among nano specialists and policy makers, and to stimulate interchange between nano specialists and members of the public so that the public can become involved. After clarifying what the term "nanotechnology" embraces and looking at cautionary lessons from experience with the information technologies and biotechnology, the discussion turns to the importance of anticipating consequences, intended and unintended. Although specific nano options to consider are lacking, a brief survey indicates the issues to watch out for: preventable harms, conflicts about justice and fairness, respect for persons, and more specifically, safeguards for workers in new production processes, intellectual property concerns, preservation of university values in university/industry relationships, and conflicts of interest. Three main fronts of activity are needed to address ethical issues: 1) incorporating ethics research into nano research and development enterprises; 2) devising mechanisms to involve the public so that their perspectives and concerns feed back into research and development; and 3) initiating educational efforts at every level addressing both technical aspects and ethics and social implications aspects.
