Full Chapters Due: March 1, 2020
Submission Date: June 24, 2020
Please note that I am desirous of participation from scholars in the humanities working on these topical research interests from a humanities perspective, and am especially interested in additional submissions on related topics beyond ethics of autonomous vehicles, though those proposals are still welcome, also. Query me in advance of your formal proposal submission, if desired.
This second CFP is for a reference book dedicated to expert research topics, and analyses of ethics-related inquiry, at the machine ethics and morality level: key players, benefits, problems, policies, and strategies. Gathering some of the leading voices that recognize and understand the complexities and intricacies of human-machine ethics early on in this phenomenon provides a resourceful compendium to be accessed by decision-makers and theorists concerned with identification and adoption of human-machine ethics initiatives, leading to needed policy adoption and reform.

There may be a final call for chapters from Dec 2, 2019 to January 2, 2020 but it is best to get your proposal in for the December 2, 2019 deadline as submissions may close with finality on that date, depending on exact participation levels. I look forward to your participation.
