The University of Lisbon (the Centre of Philosophy and the Instituto 
Superior Técnico / Institute for Systems and Robotics) together with the 
CLAWAR Association are organizing the International Conference on Robot 
Ethics.


The conference aims to:

a) provide a multidisciplinary forum for discussing some of the most 
important safety and ethical problems that have been emerging in the 
distinct contexts where robotic technology is being used, contributing, 
this way, to the definition of progressively more accurate safety 
standards and fine-grained ethical frameworks.

b) provide an opportunity for the general public to know, come close and 
interact with the latest technological developments.

c) contribute to the development of public awareness of the potential 
benefits that robotic technology brings to various domains of our life.
