[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Call for abstracts: IRSPM workshop on disruptive technologies

Carey, Nicole
The public management academic community has often failed to give
sufficient attention to aspects of technological change. This panel
actively welcome papers that deal with the various facets of the governance
of disruptive technologies to address this lacuna. The panel is keen to
solicit both theoretical papers exploring the nature of disruption in the
public service environment and empirical studies assessing the design and
deployment of disruptive technologies in public service and policy

We invite papers that address various issues of the governance of
disruptive technologies including, but not limited to:
- Ethical implications of the introduction of disruptive technologies;
- Equity implications of disruptive technologies and the impact on
- Organizational disruption of new technologies;
- Regulating disruptive technologies;
- Disruptive impacts on professional standards;
- Ensuring privacy in the world of new technologies of care;
- Surveillance and technology;
- Developing public service capability in disruptive technologies;
- Public service workforce changes resulting from disruptive technologies;
- Case studies of the governance of disruptive technologies;

The aim of this panel is to bring together public management scholars with
an interest in these new technologies to explore important themes relating
to the preparedness of the public management practice and academic
communities in adapting existing processes of governance to these new

Abstract submission deadline is 31 October 2018.
