The aim of the conference is to present and discuss research on the interrelations of values and technology. Specifically, we aim to explore how novel technological developments lead to changes in moral values and, conversely, how changing moral values affect the developments of new technologies.

  2. The interrelation between value change and technological change
  3. Value change, technical progress and moral progress
  4. Origins of value change: individual and collective
  5. Implications of value change for value sensitive design
  6. Methods for studying and anticipating value change


Registration is free.  To participate, please register here

We are currently planning to have the conference in Delft. If the situation changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will update our plans accordingly.

Note that the conference will be held in conjunction with the bi-annual conference of the 4TU.Centre for Ethics and Technology, which will take place on 14-15 October in the Netherlands. Participants travelling from abroad may take this opportunity to participate in both conferences.
