2022 ADM+S Symposium ‘Automated Societies: What do we need to know?’

20 July 2022 - 22 July 2022

RMIT building in Melbourne city at night

The 2022 ADM+S Symposium will connect our work on responsible, ethical and inclusive automated services with national and international research, policy and practice agendas, and showcase outcomes and works in progress across the Centre.

The 2022 ADM+S Symposium ‘Automated Societies: What do we need to know?’ showcases the Centre’s distinctive cross- and multi-disciplinary approach to automated systems and explores a range of critical current and emerging problems, challenges, and conceptual questions.

The event will speak to the current contexts of our work, including the consequences and implications of the pandemic for digital services; the current phase of regulatory and policy agendas in Australia and other jurisdictions; and the rapidly developing state of key technologies, systems, and infrastructures.

You will hear from ADM+S researchers, partners and collaborators through a diverse mix of keynote presentations, panel discussions, interactive workshops, film screenings, book launches, and other exciting satellite events.

We have a terrific program lined up and are looking forward to welcoming you to our 2022 Symposium!
