On 5 June 2013, scholars from Pace University and beyond joined this debate with a 'Robotic Weapons Control Symposium' at the Downtown Campus, organized by the Political Science department in the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, funded by a Thinkfinity Grant from the Verizon Foundation, in partnership with Pace University's Center for Teaching, Learning & Technology (CTLT). The symposium brought together an interdisciplinary and group of scholars to discuss the implications of the growing use of robots in war. The conference drew together around 20 thinkers from a variety of disciplines, including robotics, computer science, political science, philosophy, physics and the law. Presenters included a mix of Pace University professors and students from various schools and departments, as well as participants from the New School, NYU, Princeton, Carnegie Mellon, University of Denver, Sheffield University in the UK and Humboldt University in Germany. Participants considered three key questions: • What are the ways that robotics is changing weapons technology? • What will be the military, political, ethical and humanitarian impacts of the growing roboticization of warfare? • What, if any, legal and normative restrictions should be placed on armed robots?
