This workshop will unpack how we may address a major challenge in the technology sector: how technology should be governed. Drawing on ethical and responsible innovation and focusing on computing and climate change as a case study, this workshop will identify a set of principles required for anticipatory governance in technology. 

This virtual workshop will comprise a set of participant panels, where participants can expand on their diverse expertise on problems and opportunities for technology governance; small group work to identify key themes, strategies and principles; and full group discussion and debate. 

Those wishing to attend should submit a 2–4 page Q&A paper regarding technology governance using the Q&A template on the workshop website. Anyone with relevant expertise, within and beyond the technology sector, is welcome to apply. Expertise in climate change or sustainability is not required. 

Responses should be submitted to Kelly Widdicks ( by 1st February 2021 with the subject line "CHI Governance Workshop Submission". Submissions will be reviewed and selected to form an interesting variety of perspectives for the workshop. Notifications of submission outcomes will be sent by 21st February 2021. Accepted participants are expected to register and attend the workshop alongside at least one day of the conference.

Organisers: Kelly Widdicks, Bran Knowles, Gordon Blair, Carolyn Ten Holter, Marina Jirotka, Federica Lucivero, Gabrielle Samuel, and Helena Webb.
