Call For Papers

The 9th Conference of the Australasian Institute of Computer Ethics (AiCE 2020) will be hosted online by the University of South Australia November 28-December 10 2020.

Submissions have closed for papers that will undergo peer review (31 Aug 2020).

However, in 2020 the conference will also provide a venue for papers that are not peer reviewed. These papers may be submitted until November 25, via the AiCE 2020 EasyChair submission page:

AiCE began over 20 years ago as an organisation that sought to bring a broader focus to computing. Members included engineers, scientists, medical specialists and others who used information and communications technology (ICT) frequently in their professional lives, but would not qualify for membership of a professional ICT society. The conference series[1] in recent years has focused increasingly on cybersecurity and ethics, whilst still being broad, inviting contributions on a wide variety of ICT ethics.

The Conference Theme: Computer ethics in the new normal

The overall theme of AiCE 2020 invites exploration of emerging ideas on the relationship between online communication, ethics, governance and emerging technologies.

Submissions are invited for the following five themes:

Cyber Security
o Privacy and ethical issues relating to the use of cyber security;

o Drone Technology – the impacts of drone technology upon society;

Community informatics
o What impact have social media and related systems had upon society;

o Developing systems now and into the future - how to ensure social values are properly addressed, including community codesign issues

Governance issues on the Internet
o Should the Internet and large IT organisations be regulated and if so, how could this happen?

Ethics of Big Data
o The impact that Big Data already has and will have upon society and business.

o Experiences with GDPR

o Impacts responses and ethical issues in response to large scale data initiatives

o Ethical and related issues arising from medical IT developments

Ethics for professional societies.

Submissions on other relevant topics are most welcome. Papers will be submitted in the form of a discussion paper. The overall aim of the 9th AiCE conference is to explore emerging research and to generate research ideas.


All submissions will be in English and will take the form of a discussion paper of between 1,000 to 1,500 words, not including references. All accepted papers will be published in conference proceedings. Historically, selected papers were invited to be reworked for a special section of the Australasian Journal of Information Systems (AJIS), ranked ‘A’ by both the Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) and the Australian Council of Professors and Heads of Information Systems (ACPHIS).
