Copyright Issues Workshop

Jules Simon and Steve Roach are co-directing a CSTEP-supported international workshop on July 30, 2008 to be held at an interdisciplinary conference “Language and the Scientific Imagination.” This workshop is co-sponsored by the International Society for the Study of European Ideas and the University of Helsinki (July 29th - August 2nd): “Control + C, Control + V: on the Ethics of Copying”. Simon and Roach have already co-authored and co-presented a paper at the online CIS2E conference in December 2007.

This workshop represents their intention to work together on a research project that is primarily humanities oriented in order to extend their interdisciplinary project in both directions—i.e. from a philosopher influencing computer scientists and other engineers to a computer scientist influencing philosophers and other humanists.
