1)Dr Gary Allen

Senior Consultant, Australasian Human Research Ethics Consultancy Services Pty Ltd AHRECS and a senior policy officer in the Ethics & Integrity team in the Office for Research, Griffith University (Queensland, Australia). He is a member of the committee conducting a rolling review of the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research,

If research ‘only' involves the analysis of comments/posts/feeds on

social media is it human research? Does it require review?

These questions aren’t necessarily straightforward for researchers and research ethics reviewers. How do we provide guidance with regard to matters such as recruitment, consent, privacy and risk? The Ashley Maddison, Emotional Contagion, OkCupid and UQ Racist Bus Driver cases introduce troubling terms such as data scraping and spoof web site accounts. These cases may also prompt regulators to take a hard look at the exemption and scope policies of institutions. A resourcing reflective practice approach might be helpful to address the challenges and better support an institution’s research community.

2)Dr Dónal O'Mathúna

Senior Lecturer in Ethics, Decision-Making & Evidence, School of Nursing and Human Sciences, Dublin City University

Disaster Ethics: Issues for Researchers and Particiapants

Part of my talk focuses on research ethics and disasters, particularly social science research, but also some on medical research. I also take a broader approach looking at the ethical issues that responders face in disasters.

3)Martin Tolich will chair an open forum discussing current ethical issues.
