2022-04-08 Notifications to authors
2022-04-18 Camera-ready version
2022-06-06 Workshop in Leuven
Submissions to the workshop are invited to discuss ethical and moral questions arising in the whole spectrum of topics of Business Informatics. The following suggestions provide an impression of the intended orientation of the workshop, but you are cordially invited to propose additional topics.
- Are the subjects of Business Informatics associated with specific ethical questions? As the subjects in Business Informatics typically are intangible, does this raise a need for specific procedures to justify proper conduct of Business Informatics research?
- Do (research) methods in Business Informatics involve specific value statements or Weltanschauung?
- Which implications for classical moral philosophies arise from recent developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) research?
- What challenges arise from the availability of IT-supported machines that should act as stand-alone agents (autonomous cars, drones)? Are there any pitfalls in Machine Learning based decision support?
- Are certain species of moral philosophies (e. g., deontologist or consequentialist moral theories) especially relevant for Business Informatics? Do typical decision models in Business Informatics implicate the basic principles of specific moral theories (e. g., consequentialism)?
- What kind of statements could a „Code of Ethics“ for Business Informatics professionals include (as opposed to the “Code of Ethics” of ACM)?
- What experiences in relation to ethical questions were made in previous Business Informatics research projects?
- What initiatives concerning ethical values in Business Informatics do already exist in academia and industry? What are the results of these initiatives?
- How are ethical topics considered in Business Informatics curriculums at universities world-wide?
...and many more.
The workshop invites submissions that discuss actions or principles of actions as manifested in methodological assumptions and commitments in Business Informatics from an ethical point of view. This also includes experience reports about projects in academia and industry where questions about right and wrong conduct played a significant role. Submissions are both invited to raise questions and to report about situations where questions have already been answered in specific ways. Philosophical methods of inquiry are welcome, but not required.
Each submission will be reviewed by 3 members of the program committee. Accepted submissions must be presented by at least one author at the workshop. The proceedings of the workshop will be published in a volume of the Springer LNBIP series.
The maximum number of pages is 12 (including bibliography and appendixes). Short papers with a size up to 6 pages are also welcome. The abstract should not exceed 150 words. Please use the Springer LNCS template (https://www.springer.com/de/it-informatik/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines) and upload your submission at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=caise22.
