International Conference on Information Law and Ethics

International Conference on Information Law and Ethics

The Conference was founded by Maria Bottis in 2008, under the program of postgraduate studies ‘ Science of Information’ and the course ‘Information Law and Ethics’ (from which course it adopted its name).

ICIL started as an international Seminar on information law and ethics, with ten international speakers, reaching four parallel sessions with 130 speakers in 2011 and equal numbers in 2012, in Corfu. ICIL has hosted since 2008 a great number of experts on information law and ethics, representing the best academic institutions in the world.

ICIL is co-organized by INSEIT and is morally sponsored by the International Center for Information Ethics (ICIE), the NEXA Center for Internet and Society (Italy, Torino), and the Institute for Legal Informatics (IRI, Germany). ICIL hosts since 2010 a special session for young researchers, Young Scholar Forum.

“On behalf of INSEIT, I am delighted to congratulate Ass. Professor Maria Bottis, who has once again put together another highly successful conference in the ISIL series. INSEIT, the International Society for Ethics and Technology, has been a proud sponsor of ISIL 2009 and ISIL 2010, and is pleased to serve as a sponsor for the ICIL 2011 Conference, which will be held in Thessaloniki next May. I personally have enjoyed working closely with Ass. Professor Bottis who, I believe, has also done an outstanding job of forging a strong professional connection between the ISIL conference series and INSEIT, and between that conference series and the CEPE (Computer Ethics: Philosophical Enquiry) series, which is also sponsored by INSEIT. I look forward to working with her to continue to strengthen the relationship between these professional organizations and conference series. Herman T. Tavani President, INSEIT”, Introducing the An Information Law for the 21st Century, 2011
