Call-Bezeichnung: Call for Papers/Abstracts

Veranstaltende Institution: Projekt INTERFACES, Inst. EGT Medizin, LMU München

Neurotechnologies such as brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) or brain-to-brain interfaces (BTBIs) are no longer a futuristic dream or, depending on the viewpoint, a nightmare. They are subject of many research projects and their usability improves rapidly. Today, BCIs represent an important tool for a wide range of medical applications. The use of neurotechnologies and AI in combination elicits some pressing philosophical, ethical, social and legal concerns, e.g. how can we conceptualize agency, moral and legal responsibility and autonomy in intelligent neurotechnologies? What implications do BCIs, and even more so BTBIs, have for the concept of acting together? What consequences result in terms of mental privacy?

The conference brings together a wide range of scholars with various disciplinary backgrounds (philosophy, law, social science, cognitive sciences, medicine) to discuss the multi-dimensional implications of neurotechnology and AI.


We invite scholars who wish to contribute to the conference to submit an extended abstract with max. 1.000 words. We particularly wish to encourage young scholars to submit their work. The conference will be held in English.

Selected papers will be invited to contribute to a volume to be published later in 2019.

Deadline for submission is January 15, 2019. To submit your abstract, please visit bit.ly/neurotechsubmissions.
