By , October 21, 2009 7:53 am

The 2010 Forum on Philosophy, Engineering & Technology (fPET-2010) has issued its second call for papers (pdf here).  fPET-2010 will be held 9-10 May 2010 (Sunday evening – Monday) at the Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Co.  Organized by the Committee on Philosophy, Engineering & Technology, the event is held in cooperation with a number of organizations:

  • the Society for Philosophy and Technology (www.spt.org)
  • the IEEE Society for the Social Implications of Technology (www.ieeessit.org)
  • the Liberal Education Division (here) & Technology Literacy Constituent Committee (here) of the ASEE
  • the International Network for Engineering Studies (www.inesweb.org)
  • the Engineering Philosophy Committee of the Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) of ASCE (www.seinstitute.org)

Abstracts (500-750 words) are due electronically (here) 28 December 2009 (Monday) and notification of acceptances will be sent 1 March 2010.  All papers will be blind reviewed in one of three tracks (1) philosophy (reviewed by philosophers), (2) engineering ethics and other disciplinary subjects (mixed reviewing), and (3) reflections of practitioners (reviewed by engineers).

The forum builds on the success of the two previous Workshops on Philosophy & Engineering (WPE-2007 & WPE-2008) and examples of previous submissions may be found in the abstracts booklets from those events (2007 here and 2008 here).

More information is available about fPET-2010 from forum co-chairs Diane P. Michelfelder (michelfelder@macalester.edu) and David E. Goldberg (deg@illinois.edu).
