organization of the workshop, experiences are taken into account that have been
gained from the previous international workshops we have organized: a maximum of
35 participants, intensive interactions, amongst other because participants
receive papers beforehand and because invited discussants are given ample time
to present comments. In our format, a typical session will consist of
minute commentary sessions by two
discussants, optionally preceded by a brief presentation by the speaker, and
followed by a five to ten minute reply by the speaker and a forty to forty-five
minute open discussion.
Guidelines for Speakers
Guidelines for preparing the paper
committee is happy to provide feedback on topics, draft proposals and drafts.
Format: No preferred length or format, although our preferred
length for book chapters will be 6000-9000 words. Please include a brief
abstract, and your name and address (including e-mail address).
The November e-mail by Tsjalling Swierstra includes some specific guidelines for
your paper. Your discussants have
been selected because they have expertise in the area(s) mentioned in this
e-mail, or in adjacent areas.
Guidelines for your session
You are not
expected to present your paper at the workshop. The papers are circulated in
advance and participants are expected to read your paper before the workshop and
to be familiar with its contents. This follows the format of previous successful
Twente Workshops organized by us. At your session, two discussants will each
take 20-25 minutes to comment on your paper. The first discussant is also asked
to summarize your paper as a reminder for all participants. After the
discussants complete their comments, you are invited to respond to the
commentary in 5-10 minutes. Thereafter, there will be a general discussion that
is open to all.
Guidelines for Discussants
You are expected
deliver a 20-25 minute presentation on the paper assigned to you, connecting its
themes to your own research if possible, and commenting on its methodology and
substantive claims regarding ethics and technology.
discussants agree to present in a different order (and they should feel free to
do so), the discussant listed first in the program goes first. It would be
helpful if the first commentator summarizes key elements of the paper s/he is
commenting on, as not everyone may have had time to read all papers. Please also
try to thematize points for the general discussion that follows after the brief
reply by the author.
