As the first in a series of events on the research theme of 'Living in a Digital Society', we are pleased to announce an online Round Table on the ethics and practices of research for development. Digital methods have the potential to lower the costs of technologies that are otherwise largely unaffordable in developing nations, and pursuing research in this area throws up significant ethical and practical matters that this Round Table will discuss.
Professor Gabriel Egan, Director of the research theme 'Living in a Digital Society', will chair this Round Table that brings together four DMU colleagues:
• Dr Caroline Khene, Senior Lecturer in Information Systems and Information Society and Doctoral Programme coordinator in the Centre for Computing and Social Responsibility in the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Media.
• Professor Eerke Boiten, Professor in Cyber Security and Head of the School of Computer Science and Informatics in the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Media.
• Dr Karthikeyan Kandan, Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering, Institute of Engineering Sciences, School of Engineering and Sustainable Development, Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Media. Dr Kandan's expertise is in the fields of Mechanics of Composites and Assistive Technologies.
• Professor Jinsong Shen, Professor of Textile Chemistry and Biotechnology, School of Fashion and Textiles in the Faculty of Arts, Design, and Humanities. Professor Shen's expertise is in the field of Textile Engineering and Materials.
Places can be booked up to one hour before the event. Registrants will receive a link to join the talk up to 24 hours before the event.
