Digital Ethics Student Competition

Students, you are invited to submit a poster under the broad theme of “Digital Ethics:  can we do better?” (http://ethics4eu.eu/3rdworkshop/).


The 3 best posters will be selected for presentation at the 3rd Ethics4EU online Workshop (hosted by Telecom SudParis) on the 15th June, 2021. The presentations must be 5 minutes long (the students will be assisted by academic staff to prepare for this). All conference attendees will be invited to vote on the 3 presentations, with prizes awarded during the closing remarks at the end of day. Prizes will be awarded to the student presenters:

  • 1st Place: 1000€ gift card
  • 2nd Place: 750€ gift card            
  • 3rd Place:  500€ gift card

The ethical topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Autonomy (including autonomous vehicles, robots, drones, etc.)
  • Bias, fairness and transparence: when algorithms make decisions (including AI)
  • Privacy (including face recognition, tracking, online work, etc.
  • Safety and security

Each poster should focus on a specific domain of interest of the student. We welcome submissions in domains that include, but are not limited to:

  • Academia
  • Crime, law and policing
  • Environment
  • Entertainment (including video games, music, cinema, etc.)
  • Finance
  • Health
  • Social Media
  • Military
  • Transport

Posters should present the student’s opinion on a digital ethics issue for which they have strong views that they wish to share. The poster should make reference to secondary material (academic papers, general media, social media, videos, etc.) which the student believes represent relevant and different views on the subject.

As a conclusion, the poster must address the issue of whether/how educators could better inform students on digital ethics. The main target audience are teachers (working in higher-level institutes and in/for industry)
