The International Conference on Robot Ethics and Safety Standards aims to provide a multidisciplinary forum for discussing the most pressing safety, ethical, legal and societal issues related to the distinct contexts where robotic technology applies. Following the pathway opened by the International Conference on Robot Ethics - ICRE 2015 (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.springer.com_gp_book_9783319466651_&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Y5Gg1_6Dc3njgNfEpD28KqOhDXNrFm3LNTJ1ouHyNQg&s=ftpBEBm6S8qYqSGnfSbC42qAzRVnpFiGiCQT1dL00j0&e= ) the present conference will discuss how ethical and safety concerns can be shared by different stakeholders and translated into legal frameworks where technology contributes to a better world while respecting the fundamental humanistic values of society’s civilizational contexts.
