SPT is committed to promoting public awareness of the many worldwide events and organizations that may be of potential interest to our members or anyone engaged in work related to philosophy and technology. As part of that commitment, we are happy to share this news from the forum on Philosophy, Engineering & Technology (fPET) on their upcoming 2016 meeting:

The forum on Philosophy, Engineering & Technology (fPET) is a biennial meeting for philosophers, engineers and other researchers and practitioners related to both fields. The mission of fPET is

  • to encourage reflection on engineering, engineers, and technology and
  • to build bridges between existing organizations of philosophers and of engineers.

fPET 2016 will be held in Nuremberg, Germany from May 18‐20, 2016, hosted by Friedrich‐Alexander University Erlangen‐Nuremberg in cooperation between the Chair of Information Systems, Innovation and Value Creation and the Institute of Philosophy.
