April 2016: Final Call for Submissions!
We have a short newsletter for you this month, but wanted to remind you that April 16th is the final deadline to submit an abstract for either a paper (to present at a conference panel) or a poster (which will be displayed at the conference). Details and instructions are available on the 21CW website, and all scholars, practitioners and students are encouraged to participate.

Students, in particular, are invited to visit the website and sign up for the Doctoral Workshop, which will take place on July 12, the afternoon before the main conference events begin.
Conference Registration is now open, and you can find information about the venue and accommodations on the 21CW website. We look forward to seeing you in Melbourne in July 2016!

If you'd like to hear more about the conference, listen in on (and watch!) SSIT president Dr. Greg Adamson's interview on the IEEE Young Professionals website.
In their article for humanity+ magazine, titled "Humans for Transparency in Artificial Intelligence," authors Bill Hibbard, Nick Baladis, Ben Goertzel, Hruy Tsegaye, and David Hanson discuss ways in which we can ensure that we "maximize the odds that the future development of AI is broadly positive, and the potential for amazing benefits outweighs the potential risks."
To read more about ethical perspectives on robotics and AI, check out David J. Gunkel's book that "takes up the 'machine question': whether and to what extent intelligent and autonomous machines of our own making can be considered to have legitimate moral responsibilities and any legitimate claim to moral consideration."

This is one of a series of Conference newsletters.
