  • Non- Academic or Practitioner Contributions

The European Conference on the Impact of AI and Robotics (ECIAIR) aims to develop into a key forum where natural scientists, social scientists and practitioners come together to envision the future of society in the context of advanced AI and Robotics. We also welcome contributions from philosophers reflecting on the ethical dimension of AI and the balance between science and conscience. Contributions to the conference may be empirical or theoretical. Case histories and critical theory papers will be considered. Proposals for Round Table discussions and Workshops are also invited. This conference has been established to address these and other pertinent topics and is intended to become a leading event for those researching and working in the field from around the world.

All Papers accepted for ECIAIR after the double-blind peer review process will be published in the conference proceedings, subject to author registration and payment. 

The Proceedings is a published book with an ISBN and ISSN. Please see the ECIAIR important dates below.
