2016 Information Ethics Roundtable

event date: 

Friday, April 8, 2016 - 8:30am to 5:30pm

We live in an information society. Information and information technologies are increasingly essential to our social, economic, and political interactions. Given this, serious reflection on information ethics is imperative. "Information ethics" studies the value questions that arise in the creation, control, and access to information. The Information Ethics Roundtable is a yearly conference which brings together researchers from disciplines such as philosophy, information science, communications, public administration, anthropology and law to discuss the ethical issues such as information privacy, intellectual property, intellectual freedom, and censorship.

The 2016 Information Ethics Roundtable focuses on the relationship between intellectual freedom, access to information, and privilege.
