The PROTECT MSCA ITN is coming to an end and its closing symposium, titled ‘Governing Artificial Intelligence Designing Legal and Regulatory Responses’, will take place on May 23 in Brussels. The event is co-organized by LSTS alongside the PROTECT MSCA ITN and the Trinity College Dublin’s Technologies, Law and Society research group.
The symposium will examine the legal and regulatory challenges posed in the fourth industrial revolution by the advent of AI. Contributors to the symposium will seek to engage creatively with the benefits offered by AI, dangers posed and potential legal and regulatory approaches. AI brings unparalleled opportunities but significant ethical, legal, and regulatory challenges, raising issues that frequently transcend national boundaries. Algorithmic engagement with big data, machine learning, autonomous vehicles, and robo-advisors (to name but a few) are challenging incumbent practices and firms. This evolution gives rise to new issues which hold significance, not just for private parties, but for governments, legislators, regulators, policymakers, and courts and, more broadly, for how fields of law respond to AI’s emergence.
The symposium is welcoming interdisciplinary submissions in the fields of law, ethics and technology and a complete list of topics is available at https://protect.oeg.fi.upm.es/protect-symposium/. The call for abstract is available here: https://protect.oeg.fi.upm.es/protect-symposium/files/cfp.pdf.
The deadline for submission is 18.00 hours (Central European Time) Friday 7 April 2023.
Submissions will be considered by the Conference Committee and decisions on acceptance will be communicated by 14 April 2023. Presentations will be organised into chaired panels and the presentation time for each participant will be 20 minutes. For more technical presentation the option to participate in a poster/demo session will also be available. Subsequent submission of full papers is not required. Participants should note that they will be required to fund their own travel and accommodation expenses. Please direct any queries to: email@example.com
