computing technology revolution continues to accelerate. The applications
of this universal tool seem limitless. Indeed the convergence of

overall theme for ETHICOMP 2001 is "Systems of the Information Society".
The aim is to focus on the ethical and social impacts of these systems

teaching ethics to computing students; ethics in virtual communities;
