Subject: new book of critical interest (23)  From: Juan Manuel Duran Subject: Call for contributions - The societal and ethical dimensions of computer simulations (112) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-01-31 07:48:07+00:00 From: Willard McCarty Subject: new book of critical interest Emphasis on the crafting of knowledge and making of meaning in the natural sciences, especially the experimental kind, has given new life to the older question of creativity in scientific work. At the same time, we who use the digital machine in the human sciences have developed parallel interests and techniques to advance these interests. For this reason, I think physicist Tom McLeish's new book, The Poetry and Music of Science: Comparing Creativity in Science and Art (Oxford University Press, 2019), will reward the reading many times over. See the following for a bit more information: https://global.oup.com/academic/product/the-poetry-and-music-of- science-9780198797999?cc=gb&lang=en& Yours, WM -- Willard McCarty (www.mccarty.org.uk/), Professor emeritus, Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London; Adjunct Professor, Western Sydney University; Editor, Interdisciplinary Science Reviews (www.tandfonline.com/loi/yisr20) and Humanist (www.dhhumanist.org) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-01-31 07:18:14+00:00 From: Juan Manuel Duran Subject: Call for contributions - The societal and ethical dimensions of computer simulations Simulations Special Issue THE SOCIETAL AND ETHICAL DIMENSIONS OF COMPUTER SIMULATIONS (S18-2) Guest Editors - Juan M. Durán (TU Delft) - Jeroen van den Hoven (TU Delft) Computer simulations are a fundamental method for the progress of scientific and engineering research. Jim Gray (2007) called them the third paradigm of research, along with theory, experiment and Big Data (the first, second and fourth paradigm respectively). While the specialised literature has extensively focused on epistemological, ontological and methodological issues of computer simulations (Humphreys, 2004, Winsberg, 2010, Morrison, 2015, Durán, 2018), less has been said on the social and ethical dimensions of computer simulations (Brey 1999, 2008, Tolk and Ören, 2017). The purpose of the special issue "The societal and ethical dimensions of computer simulations" is to address core questions about the role and use of computer simulations in scientific and engineering practice, as well as their influence in society, democracy, and education, among other contexts. To this end, we invite philosophers, educators, sociologists, engineers, scientists and all researchers interested in studies on computer simulations to submit their work to this special issue (for a list of possible topics, see below). This special issue of SIMULATION (http://journals.sagepub.com/home/sim) addresses critical concerns in the actual practice and use of computer simulations in scientific and engineering research. To this end, we invite researchers invested in answering these problems to submit to this special issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: - Ethics: -- Code of conduct -- Bias simulations, democracy, and justice -- Irresponsible uses of results of simulations -- The profession of designing, programming, and using computer simulations - Values for design: -- The accountability of designers, programmers, and users of computer simulations -- Responsible innovation with computer simulations -- Shaping policymaking in the light of computer-based research -- Values, uncertainties, and distrust in simulation models - Education: -- Including methods from computer science in scientific and engineering curricula -- Educating engineers and scientists to simulate-first build-later - The future of science and engineering: -- Computer simulations as the third paradigm of research -- New forms of scientific and engineering practice -- Computer simulations, AI, and Big Data: the new frontiers of science and engineering Submission Guidelines: All papers should be developed, formatted and submitted based upon the editorial guidelines provided in the instructions for authors for "Simulation: Transactions of the Society for Modelling and Simulation International", which can be accessed from (https://us.sagepub.com/en-us/nam/journal/simulation#submission-guidelines). The authors should choose the Article Type as "Special Issue "at the first step of the submission process and put "Special Issue: S18-2 THE SOCIETAL AND ETHICAL DIMENSIONS OF COMPUTER SIMULATION in the title and cover letter of your submissions. The process of review and publication is the same as the regular issue of "Simulation: Transactions of the Society for Modelling and Simulation International." Due Dates: Submission deadline: June 30, 2019. Notification to authors of acceptance: August 30, 2019. If you have questions, please contact: email@example.com. References: Brey, Philip. 1999.
