The Chair of “Ethics & Transhumanism(s)”, which was created in November 2016 with the support of the Hauts-de-France region, aims to study the human phenomenon and its inclusion in a socio-cultural and ideological environment shaken by the recent acceleration of technoscientific advances. In particular, it aims to develop and offer to regional, national and international partners a space for open dialogue and reflection, as well as an informed analysis of the nature of trans (and post-) humanism(s) which cover(s) a variety of positions and nuances in the academic, political, and economic arenas. Just as its members share plural philosophical commitments (although ethically unanimously supporting the respect of the inalienable dignity of every human person), the Chair does not aim to defend a priori a specific militant position or a particular ideology. It rather allows for what the university tradition has always offered to society: a privileged space for dialogue and reflection allowing diverse voices to present their ideas, and where the rigorous analysis of facts and reasons is considered to be the most important tool for assessing theories and guiding action.
You are a professional and your company allows you to participate to the conference. Two registration options are proposed to you:
1) Either by following the normal procedure: you register by creating a personal account on the conference website, and you pay your registration fees by following the online procedure provided for this purpose (if necessary, more information on this subject can be found in the FAQs under "How to register for the conference"). You will receive a PDF downloadable payment receipt. If you would like an invoice, simply request it by writing to info@ethconference2018.com.
2) Or you can ask by email to register, by writing to info@ethconference2018.com. Our administrative services will contact you to finalize your registration with you and your company.
Registering for the Conference goes through the following procedure:
1. If you haven't yet signed in your personal account at www.ethconference2018.com, create it!
2. Once your account has been created on the Conference website, the latter will send you an email to the email box you have indicated; to finalise the creation of your account, you must open this email and validate the creation of the account by clicking on the confirmation button contained in this email.
3. Login to your Dashboard
4. In your Dashboard, click on the "Registration" button.

- On your Dashboard (main page of your personal account), click on the button to finalize your registration (by paying your registration fee online).
- You will then just have to follow the step-by-step process by specifying your registration options.
- To complete your registration, you will be asked to pay your conference registration fee online on a secure page dedicated to this operation.
- You will then be sent a confirmation of payment which will mean your registration to the Conference is completed and validated.
As a reminder, a discount on registration fees is guaranteed until May 15. The deadline for payment of your conference registration fee is 10 June.
One last point to mention:
We strongly advise you to book your hotel in Lille well in advance, as the Conference will be held at the same time as a major French evening in Lille: the annual Music Festival which will take place in the evening on 21 June 2018. We will have the privilege of enjoying this unforgettable cultural event, but it will also generate influx and many hotel bookings. Make your arrangements in time.
You first have to log in.
Once logged in, your dashboard can be accessed by clicking on the "Welcome" button at the top of the page.
Once you have created your account, you can log in.
Once logged in, you will see at the top an area with "Welcome" and your first name.
Click on this area and select "My abstracts".
You will then get a page with your already submitted abstract(s) and a button "Add a new abstract" to submit a new abstract.
Please note that the summary of the abstract can not exceed 3000 characters.
When submitting an abstract, you will be asked in which case you find yourself:
- If you submit an individual communication without any relation to a specific panel in preparation, please select "Individual communication" in the drop list.
- If the panel to which you have been selected has not yet been approved, you will not find it in the drop list: please then select the "The title of the panel for which I have been selected will soon be added" option and contact us through the "contact" tab ; we will link your abstract to the correct panel as soon as it is approved.
If your co-authors come and present with you, please make sure they are also registered in the system to add them in the "Authors" field.
If your co-authors do not attend the conference, you can mention them directly in the "Summary" field of the abstract.
Once your abstract is submitted, don't be surprised not to receive a confirmation email. If your proposal is registered in your personal space ("My abstracts"), it means that it has been well received by the ETHConference2018 organisation team.
Once you have created your account, you can log in.
Once logged in, you will see at the top an area with "Welcome" and your first name.
Click on this area and select "My panels" in the drop list.
You will then get a page entitled "My panels" with your possibly already submitted panel(s) or participatory workshop(s) and a "Add New Panel" button at the bottom of the page. Click on it.
A panel proposal includes a general presentation (800 words) of the panel theme, the targeted issue and its issues, as well as the names of the speakers chosen by the panel organizer and the title of the paper each speaker will present.
Two important points:
1) Before submitting a project on the ETHConference2018 website, the organizer of a panel is responsible for the prior selection of the 3 or 6 speakers who will make a presentation in his panel;
2) Once each speaker is notified of is selected by the panel organizer (we advise you to make your notifications before March 5, 2018), don't forget to ask to each of your selected speakers to submit their individual abstract (by March 10, 2018) via their personal registration account on the ETHConference2018 website.
Once your panel is submitted, don't be surprised not to receive a confirmation email. If your proposal is registered in your personal space ("My panels"), it means that it has been well received by the ETHConference2018 organisation team.
Please check your "spam" directory, sometimes the confirmation mails are considered as spam.
Once you have created your account, you can log in.
Once logged in, you will see at the top an area with "Welcome" and your first name.
Click on this area and select "My participatory workshops" in the drop list.
You will then get a page entitled "My participatory workshops" with your possibly already submitted participatory workshop(s) or panel(s) and a "Add a new participatory workshop" button at the bottom of the page. Click on it.
Workshop proposals (800 words max.) include a presentation of the chosen theme, the pedagogical framework, the logistical support required, the workshop facilitators, the intended objectives, and the expected audience. For example, you can propose a workshop-debate, a citizen forum, a round table, focus groups, a collective reflection exercise, etc. A workshop can take any imaginable form!
Themes may be, for example a new technology, a new project a company or an entrepreneur wants to challenge with an audience, ethical stakes raised by robotization and AI in specific economic/social areas, art perspective on contemporary and future transformations, big data, policies and privacy, and any other topics and issues encountered by stakeholders in their field commitments…
Anyone who would eventually need some advice and feedback in setting up a participatory workshop can contact Prof. Jean-Charles Cailliez (jean-charles.cailliez@univ-catholille.fr), Director of HEMiSF4iRE, the Design School of Lille Catholic University.
Once your participatory workshop is submitted, don't be surprised not to receive a confirmation email. If your proposal is registered in your personal space ("My workshops"), it means that it has been well received by the ETHConference2018 organisation team.
If your co-authors come and present with you, please make sure they are also registered in the system to add them in the "Authors" field.
If your co-authors do not attend the conference, you can mention them directly in the "Summary" field of the abstract.
Log in to your Dashboard.
Click on 'My abstracts'; Click on the 'Edit' button and Click on 'Upload my presentation'.
Your presentation will be viewable by connecting users only.
Please note that there seems to be some issues with Microsoft Edge so please use Chrome or Firefox.
1. Verify that you have encoded the correct email address by creating your account, or by entering it as your username.
2. Before you can log in, you must receive a confirmation email on your mailbox, and have clicked on the tab "verify my account".
3. If you do not receive a confirmation email, wait a while (the receipt of the email is almost instantaneous, but for various technical reasons it can sometimes be delayed).
4. Check your "spam" directory, sometimes the confirmation mails are considered as spam.
5. Finally, please report the problem to info@ethconference2018.com.
Once your abstract is submitted, don't be worry if you do not receive an email confirmation; the site operating system has not been designed to send you one. This is quite normal as the rule of ETHConference2018 website is the following : if your submitted proposal appears in your personal account ("My abstracts"), it means that it has been received by the ETHConference2018 organisation team.
