Information and Communication Technologies, Transparency and Corporate Responsibility: Social and Ethical Considerations in the Global Economy

07. 11. 2007

The Conference seeks submissions that focus on any aspect of the nexus of transparency in business, social responsibility, and the role of ICT. However, two main streams will be emphasized: the first is related to the concept of “transparency” as it applies to social organizations of various kinds including governmental, as well as business, profit and non-profit; the second is related to the impact of ICT on organizational transparency. A list of possible topic includes:

· Ethical concerns related to transparency in business organizations.

· Transparency and ethics related issues in the framework of accountability processes in higher education and scientific systems.

· Case studies of transparent business practices and their use of ICT tools.

· Ethical concerns related to transparency in other types of organizations (e.g. NGOs, educational, heath, and humanitarian).

· Relationships and conflicts between the transparency and other ethical values (e.g. privacy).

· Philosophical justifications and criticisms of the value of transparency.

· Transparency metrics: How to measure it?

· Transparency and business performance: enhancement or obstacle?

· The impact of ICT on transparency in business organizations.

· The impact of ICT on transparency in other social organizations (e.g. NGOs, educational, heath and humanitarian)

· Wiki, Blogs and so on: social and ethical issues.

This event intends to join business and information ethics scholars and practitioners from all over the world.
