Ethics in ICT matter. And the competences to develop solutions to the infoethics challenges of the early 21st century are likely to be increasingly needed.
First of its kind, a one-day workshop on ethics and social accountability for ICT was held at The British Computer Society (BCS) London Office on October 22, 2013. This was a joint initiative between BCS ICT Ethics Specialist Group and IFIP’s Special Interest Group 9.2.2 on Ethics and Computing and IFIP’s Working Group 9.2 on Social Accountability and ICT. It was led by the two chairs, Penny Duquenoy and Diane Whitehouse.
