APPLIED ETHICS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CONFERENCE [AE-AI]
AE-AI seeks to define, describe, and analyze the phenomenon of relations between AE and AI
from as many aspects as possible. Two main aspects will be the direction from AE to AI and from
AI to AI. Therefore, we expect original scientific and/or practitioners papers that will fall under
one of these two directions or aspects of analysis of the relation. These aspects were forced on
us by two parallel contemporary phenomena and facts about changes of a human being (mainly
in terms of augmented man) which is becoming more and more artificial, and about changes of AI
(autonomous vehicles, various services robots etc.) which is becoming more and more human
and humane).
These two sets of parallel phenomena are changing scientific research, business world, and our
daily environments from technical and moral points of view. Therefore, we thought that it is of
some importance to discuss these parallel phenomena from AE and AI points of view and to at
least try to formulate our basic concepts soundly and clearly
SUBMISSION AND REGISTRATION
Submit your abstract and full paper on time, and/or just register as a guest. Abstract
Submission Deadline: 1st of April, 2018. Full text Submission Deadline: 1st of May, 2018. You can
submit your abstract and full text to scientific organizers: bjalsen@zsem.hr or
kristian.krkac@gmail.com. These deadlines are important since we plan to publish the proceeding
of the conference as an e-book before the event (and perhaps later on as a printed book).
ABSTRACT, KEY WORDS, PAPER, AND LECTURE FORMATS
Abstract should not exceed 250 words and should have 4-7 sub-headings, i.e. (1) Purpose, (2)
Design / methodology / approach, (3) Findings, (4) Research limitations / implications, (5) Practical
implications, (6) Social implications, and (7) Originality. Some sub-headings should be omitted if
the paper is more theoretical or more practical oriented. Key words are needed (list 3-6 key words
in alphabetical order or in the order of importance). The paper should not exceed the length of
6000 words (without abstract illustrations, charts, and references). They should be formatted in
APA Style, and in Microsoft Word. Only one-level sub-sections is allowed (therefore, 1., 1.1., 1.2., etc.).
The proofreading of the paper is the responsibility of the author (co-authorship between applied
ethicists and AI experts is encouraged). Lecture format includes 20 min. lecture and 10 min.
discussion per paper. A plenary discussion with the keynote speakers is planed in the closing
part of the conference. Power point or similar presentations are encouraged as well as handouts
if papers are highly technical and/or long.
PUBLICATION
All the abstracts and papers will be published in an e-book in form of Conference Proceedings
(and later on in a printed form).
