DILEMA Symposium on Interim Research Results

Published 20 June 2022

On Wednesday 29 June 2022 (12:30-17:00), we are organising a DILEMA Symposium, where the research team will present ongoing research and interim results. The symposium will be held in person at the Asser Institute in The Hague, with remote participation (via Zoom) available.

The symposium will feature presentations by DILEMA researchers on ongoing research and interim results. Topics we will discuss include autonomy in decision-making, meaningful human control, and responsibility at the pre-deployment stages. Each presentation will be followed by a 15-min discussion so as to provide ample room for questions and comments.

To register for this symposium, please send an email to DILEMA@asser.nl, indicating whether you would join in-person (including lunch) or online.
