Call for Papers

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1818) opened the floodgates for speculation as to the limits and possibilities of the human, as imagined through the unimaginably powerful new tools of modern science. After Shelley, the artificial or non-natural human steps out of the realm of horror and enters a new realm: the future. From H.G. Wells's The Island of Dr Moreau to Villiers del'Isle Adams's The Eve of the Future, the nineteenth century threw itself into this new theme with gusto. In the twentieth century, as biotech grew more sophisticated and powerful, so did our imaginings of the people who might result from these moral and material experiments, and what the ethical fallout of these actions might be. Twentieth century imaginings of artificial humans are too numerous to count, but certain themes appear to recur. In both Rossum's Universal Robots by Karel Capek and in Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, the moral perils of creating a sentient race and then enslaving it are explored. Other questions also arise: what would a completely rational being see as morality? How much of our humanity is an accident of nature, and how much of it is a factor of our self-fashioning? The idea of the artificial human is like an empty space in which we can inscribe many of our speculations about these problems, and by so doing they become real to us, or at least as real as stories.

We propose the following broad themes for the conference:

Robots: artificial beings and slavery
Planned parenthood in the laboratory: relations with the creator
The Galatea effect: love and romance with artificial humans
We are one: mind-melding and hive minds
Terminator salvation: fears and dreams of machine imperialism
Cyborg /goddess: machines and the divine
Ghost in the shell: the hard problem of consciousness
The Bokanovsky process: ownership, cloning, hacking human reproduction
Golem of mine: artificial humans through history
Will you be assimilated? the alien as provisional human

Abstracts and a short bio may be sent by 31 August 2018 to

64:: Call for student mobility for the Fall semester of 2017-18 academic year Erasmus+ KA107 ICM
Dear Colleagues,
Warm regards from Middle East Technical University!
We are happy to announce our new call for student mobility for the Fall semester of 2017-18 academic year Erasmus+ KA107 ICM. The application call will be active from 12.05.2017 to 15.06.2017. Therefore, we kindly invite you to select outgoing students and send us your nominations for the 2017-2018 Fall semester. We would be glad to host 1 of your student at our institution for the next fall semester. In addition to 1 number of candidate, you are also welcomed to make 1 additional nomination as reserve (substitute) candidate. Reserve candidates will be considered in case any of the main candidates withdraw their applications. We also ask you to rank your reserve candidates based on academic merit and student ranks must be shown on the attached "Selection Committee Report".

- Minimum study years for undergraduate students: Undergraduate nominees must have completed minimum 1 year at your institution before visiting METU.
- MS/PhD Students: METU will accept graduate students for exchange only if they agree to take courses at our institution. Unfortunately it is not possible to assign academic supervisors to students who want to conduct research work at METU due to overload of faculty members.

- English Proficiency Document: The language of instruction at METU is English at all levels and at all programs. Therefore, students without required English proficiency is likely to fail at our institution and hamper our collaboration.
We kindly invite you to develop additional mechanisms and take necessary measures to ensure that your outgoing students have sufficient level of English (minimum B1 according to CEFR). As you will see attached, your students English proficiency test scores are required for the application process- this score can be obtained in an internal examination organized at your university or can be the score of an internationally recognized English proficiency test. Please indicate the test score on the English Proficiency Document attached.

- Selection Committee Report: We ask our partners to send us an official document concerning the selection process and results, carried out by a pre-determined committee. For this purpose please use the attached
    Selection Committee Report
and send us this document as soon as you have completed the selection process. This document must include the ranking of students as mentioned above.

- Submission of documents: We kindly ask you, not students, to submit student application documents to us, via e-mail. Application documents sent by students will not be accepted as we prefer working with international offices for student nomination and application processes. Therefore, please submit your nominees documents directly to us after collecting them from the students.
Please submit all documents at once, with separate attached files, indicating the name of each student. You are not expected to submit documents for substitute nominees as they will be required in case any of the main candidates withdraws from the application.

- Document format:Photograph of the documents will not be accepted. We kindly ask you to submit the clean, scanned version of the required documents.

- Signatures:Please make sure that all of the documents contains original signatures and not copy-paste signatures.

Responsible university officials must submit application documents via e-mail until June 15, 2017.
