AAAI / ACM
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 2, 2018

As AI is becoming more pervasive in our lives, its impact on society is more significant, raising ethical concerns and challenges regarding issues such as value alignment, safety and security, data handling and bias, regulations, accountability, transparency, privacy, and workforce displacement. Only a multidisciplinary effort can find the best ways to address these concerns, including experts from disciplines such as ethics, philosophy, economics, sociology, psychology, law, history, and political science. In order to address these issues in a scientific context, AAAI and ACM have joined forces to start a new conference, the AAAI/ACM Conference on AI, Ethics, and Society.

Nature Writing’s Future Pasts

Land Lines: British Nature Writing 1789-2014 (AHRC Project)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

British nature writing can be understood as both a product of and a challenge to a western-style modernity that has created the conditions for its own unravelling. The tense that best captures these conditions is the future anterior. Scottish writer Kathleen Jamie, wandering through Bergen’s Natural History Museum, marvels at the ‘decaying bones of twenty-four cetacean skeletons crowded under the ceiling’. One whale skeleton alone, that of a gigantic blue, is ‘less an animal, more a narrative’. The different cetacean narratives add up to a devastating commentary to which even words such as ‘waste’ and ‘slaughter’ and ‘holocaust’ and ‘shame’ cannot do full justice.
