An International Workshop

Nanoethics Asia (NEA2009)

August 26 - 28, 2009, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand

The Nanoethics Research Group, the Center for Innovative Nanotechnology, 
and the Center for Ethics of Science and Technology, Chulalongkorn 
University, will organize an international workshop on "Nanoethics Asia" 
(NEA2009). The purpose of the Workshop is to stimulate and gather ground 
breaking research in all areas related to the ethical, social, cultural, 
and legal implications of what is broadly construed as "nanotechnology," 
especially as these implications arise from within the contexts of Asia 
and other non-Western regions.

Call for Abstracts

Those who are interested in participating in the Workshop should submit 
an abstract of between 150 to 300 words to Mr Parkpume Vanichaka at 
parkpume-AT-gmail. com. Abstracts are accepted for considerations which 
consider the ethical, legal, social, cultural aspects of nanotechnology 
as well as other related technologies. Abstracts dealing with these 
issues in relation to the context of the developing country (not only in 
Asia) are especially welcome.

The following topics would be particularly suitable for the Workshop, 
though the list is not exhaustive:

*Human enhancement through nanotechnology
*Life extension
*Safety issues arising from nanomaterial
*Nanotechnology for development
*Legal and regulatory issues


Last date for submission of abstract: 28 March 2009
Notification of Acceptance: 30 April 2009
Submission of full paper: 15 July 2009
Workshop date: 26 – 28 August 2009

Keynote Speaker

Prof. John Weckert, Charles Sturt University, Australia and 
Editor-in-Chief, Nanoethics: Ethics for Technologies that Converge at 
the Nanoscale.
