The Doha-based Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE) is pleased to invite scholars, academics and researchers to submit their research papers to a closed three-day seminar on “Islamic Ethics and the Genome Question” to be held in Doha during the period April 03-05, 2017. The seminar is convened by CILE’s research unit ‘Islam and Biomedical Ethics’ as part of a publication project carrying the same title, in collaboration with Brill Publishers.
Those who are interested should send:
(a) An abstract (300-500 words), describing the research’s core ideas and how they will be addressed in the light of the attached Background Paper, and
(b) A brief biography (max. 500 words) outlining the applicant’s academic background, main research interests and key publications.
Authors whose abstracts are accepted will receive an invitation to submit their full papers (between 7,000 and 10,000 words) within the deadline specified below. The authors of a selection of the accepted papers will be invited to participate in the seminar and the other accepted papers will be considered for the publication project.
