Dies ist ein Call for Abstracts für die 4th European Conference on Technology Assessment in Bratislava, 4.-6. November 2019 zum Thema “Limits to … predictive power” – policy advice in the age of computational modelling”
The relevance of computational modelling and simulation (CMS) in policy advice is continuously increasing, yet questions of interpretability and inherent values remain challenging for those involved in advising policy makers or societal actors. In Technology Assessment (TA), CMS may both serve as an object of analysis ‐ relating to questions of knowledge production, advisory systems or societal decision‐making‐, as well as support TA practitioners’ daily work as an epistemic tool. This session invites presentations that reflect on these relations along the following questions:
- What kind of and whose assumptions and values are inscribed in computational modelling approaches and how?
- How are model assumptions and results negotiated and communicated between different actors?
- What opportunities and barriers does CMS provide for democratic deliberations of technology visions?
