The University of Miami Ethics Programs have agreed to support We Robot 2014 as a Processor level sponsor. Established in 1991, the University of Miami Ethics Programs foster and support a range of efforts dedicated to education, research and community service in ethics and the professions. This university-wide inter- and multi-disciplinary program has emphasized work in bioethics, business and professional ethics, research and scientific ethics. From undergraduate UM academic societies to the federal government, the Ethics Programs have enjoyed a variety of collaborations on and contributions to special projects.
Several people have asked about extensions of the deadline for submitting abstracts, given that we extended our deadline in each of the last two years. The problem with an extension is that it pushes back the date to give people a reply as to whether the paper has been accepted, and last year some people complained about that delay.
So we’ve worked out an experiment for this year: the deadline for abstracts remains midnight tonight. But we’ll continue to accept paper proposals on a rolling, space-available, basis until we’ve made up the full program. In other words, if you want to maximize your chances of getting your paper accepted, get the abstract in today. But we won’t refuse your paper just because it’s late until we’ve filled our dance card. Of course, the later we get it, the more we’ll have filled up the program. The fewer slots available for it, the lower your chances…

About We Robot 2014
Robotics is becoming a transformative technology. We Robot 2014 builds on existing scholarship exploring the role of robotics to examine how the increasing sophistication of robots and their widespread deployment everywhere from the home, to hospitals, to public spaces, and even to the battlefield disrupts existing legal regimes or requires rethinking of various policy issues.
If you are on the front lines of robot theory, design, or development, we hope to see you. Come join the conversations between the people designing, building, and deploying robots, and the people who design or influence the legal and social structures in which robots will operate.
We Robot 2014 will be in Coral Gables, Fl, hosted by the University of Miami School of Law.
