The Chair of “Ethics & Transhumanism(s)”, which was created in November 2016 with the support of the Hauts-de-France region, aims to study the human phenomenon and its inclusion in a socio-cultural and ideological environment shaken by the recent acceleration of technoscientific advances. In particular, it aims to develop and offer to regional, national and international partners a space for open dialogue and reflection, as well as an informed analysis of the nature of trans (and post-) humanism(s) which cover(s) a variety of positions and nuances in the academic, political, and economic arenas. Just as its members share plural philosophical commitments (although ethically unanimously supporting the respect of the inalienable dignity of every human person), the Chair does not aim to defend a priori a specific militant position or a particular ideology. It rather allows for what the university tradition has always offered to society: a privileged space for dialogue and reflection allowing diverse voices to present their ideas, and where the rigorous analysis of facts and reasons is considered to be the most important tool for assessing theories and guiding action.

A panel proposal includes a general presentation (800 words) of the panel theme, the targeted issue and its issues, as well as the names of the speakers chosen by the panel organizer and the title of the paper each speaker will present.
Two important points:
1) Before submitting a project on the ETHConference2018 website, the organizer of a panel is responsible for the prior selection of the 3 or 6 speakers who will make a presentation in his panel;
2) Once each speaker is notified of is selected by the panel organizer (we advise you to make your notifications before March 5, 2018), don't forget to ask to each of your selected speakers to submit their individual abstract (by March 10, 2018) via their personal registration account on the ETHConference2018 website.

You will then get a page entitled "My participatory workshops" with your possibly already submitted participatory workshop(s) or panel(s) and a "Add a new participatory workshop" button at the bottom of the page. Click on it.
Workshop proposals (800 words max.) include a presentation of the chosen theme, the pedagogical framework, the logistical support required, the workshop facilitators, the intended objectives, and the expected audience. For example, you can propose a workshop-debate, a citizen forum, a round table, focus groups, a collective reflection exercise, etc. A workshop can take any imaginable form!
Themes may be, for example a new technology, a new project a company or an entrepreneur wants to challenge with an audience, ethical stakes raised by robotization and AI in specific economic/social areas, art perspective on contemporary and future transformations, big data, policies and privacy, and any other topics and issues encountered by stakeholders in their field commitments…
Anyone who would eventually need some advice and feedback in setting up a participatory workshop can contact Prof. Jean-Charles Cailliez (jean-charles.cailliez@univ-catholille.fr), Director of HEMiSF4iRE, the Design School of Lille Catholic University.
