Call for submissions: Cambridge research on trust and technology

last modified Jul 01, 2019 12:25 PM
The Cambridge Trust & Technology Initiative is seeking submissions for publication at our symposium in September 2019. We're looking for short pieces of up to 500 words describing research and activities at Cambridge and linking it to our broad themes of trust, distrust, internet technologies, society and power. We will publish these on the Trust & Technology Initiative's website and will also publish a selection of pieces in the printed event programme.

Interdisciplinary work touching on any of our themes is welcome:

  • Relationships and interplays between technology and society; the legal, ethical and political frameworks impacting both trust and technology, and innovative governance, in areas such as transport, critical infrastructure, identity, manufacturing, healthcare, financial systems and networks, communications systems, internet of things
  • The nature of trust and distrust; trust in technology, and trust through technology; the many dimensions of trust at individual, organisational and societal levels
  • Rigorous technical foundations, for resilient, secure and safe computer systems, including data and communications platforms, artificial intelligence, and robotics.

To submit an article, please complete this form before September 6th. 

About us

The Trust & Technology Initiative brings together and drives forward interdisciplinary research from Cambridge and beyond to explore the dynamics of trust and distrust in relation to internet technologies, society and power; to better inform trustworthy design and governance of next generation tech at the research and development stage; and to promote informed, critical, and engaging voices supporting individuals, communities and institutions in light of technology’s increasing pervasiveness in societies.
