Workshop Duration & Proposed Schedule
- This one day workshop is split into six sections. In the first section (45 minutes) we will have introductions and the organizing team will explain themes (including new ones that might arise from position papers) and provide preliminary background material to help participants understand philosophical worldviews on science and technology that influence ethical stances. The second section (45 minutes) will involve group activities focused on identification and prioritization of issues based on the existing (or new) themes. After a morning coffee break, the third activity (60 minutes) will involve a whole group session to share and prioritize issues raised. After the lunch break there will be two sequential activities separated by a coffee break (45 minutes each) in which working groups will explore, analyze and discuss relevant guidance (where it exists) within a prioritized area. Where no guidance exists, groups will generate considerations and questions that must be addressed. We will repeat this activity so participants can join two working groups. During the final section (60-75 minutes and carrying on over dinner), we will come together share, to weave together and record our findings.
