Aim: to examine the relations between values, computing technologies and society. It does so by bringing together practitioners and researchers from several areas within and beyond computer science, including human computer interaction, software engineering, computer ethics, moral philosophy, philosophy of technology, investigative data science, and critical data studies.
Outcomes: a research agenda to be included in the Dagstuhl Report; and a jointly designed ‘Values in Computing’ teaching module, to be piloted across a selection of participating universities.
Dagstuhl seminars are a fantastic opportunity for academics and practitioners to come together, exchange experiences, explore ideas and put research to work. The seminar took pace on 15-19 July 2019.
