Invitation for Patrons

Dear Colleagues,

With the evolution of science, technology and engineering, ethical problems often arise. Ethics and ethical conduct have become a critical issue in the 21st Century.

Scientists, technologists and engineers of all ages, students as well as senior professionals, encounter ethical challenges in their professional and personal lives. Often, an answer to such challenges arises from brainstorming sessions and intense discussions. Are ethics and morals the same? Are ethics and laws consistent? Could professional ethics in one discipline conflict with ethical conduct of another discipline? Should ethics be sacrificed for global “competitiveness”?

Furthermore, ethical conduct has global and cultural perspectives. Could unethical conduct in one culture be acceptable in another? What is the difference between ethics and codes of conduct? Are there principles that could be considered as valid through all cultures? Could we claim that the fundamental bases of ethics are independent of our origins?

With all these questions (and many others) in mind, we are delighted to announce that the first IEEE International Symposium on Ethics in Science, Technology and Engineering (IEEE Ethics’2014).

The IEEE Ethics 2014 Symposium aims to respond to the needs and aspirations of a rising global professional community and to promote highest standards of ethical conduct among its members.

A technical exhibition related to our theme is an integral and inseparable part of the Symposium, providing first hand exposure to participants and potential customers companies. The Symposium offers exposure for companies providing products, services in the field of ethics research and education to the symposium participants, not only through the exhibition itself, but also through additional promotional activities, available through the Patronage Program. It also affords companies interested in supporting ethics as an affirmative way of doing business the opportunity to advertise their support. Take advantage of a patronage opportunity to highlight and showcase your organization either as service provider or as a supporter of ethics as a good way of doing business.. Being a Patron serves as a way to create brand awareness and preference, generate consumer loyalty and as a way to enhance the corporate image of your company or organization. Your support will enable us to even further enhance the Symposium quality and standards, in such activities as encouragement of students’ participation, provide funding awards, such as the “Best Paper Award” and the “Best Student Paper Award”, and improve our workshop and tutorial program and social events.

All patronage levels and promotional opportunities outlined below have been designed so that your organization can make a memorable impact on your customers within the international marketplaces.

On behalf of the Ethics’2014 International Symposium Committee, I thank you in advance for your support,

Most sincerely yours,

Elya B. Joffe

Ethics’2014 Symposium General Chair
