Opening Conference of the ZiF Research Group
Economic and Legal Challenges in the Advent of Smart Products
Convenors: Herbert Dawid (Bielefeld, GER), Sabine Gless (Basel, SUI), Gerd Muehlheusser (Hamburg, GER)
Smart products, such as smart household appliances, smart health devices or highly automated vehicles, are increasingly finding their way into everyday life. These products raise a number of economic and legal challenges, e.g. regarding product development, consumer acceptance, data privacy and data security, liability and regulation. The main aim of the ZiF research group is to investigate these topics in more detail, and the opening conference offers a platform for disciplinary and interdisciplinary exchange. Apart from contributed papers, the conference will feature two keynotes by Mireille Hildebrandt (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) and Eric Talley (Columbia University, New York) as well as a panel discussion with experts from various fields.
The public conference will be held in a hybrid format. Researchers and interested parties are cordially invited to attend online.
