Abstract and Keywords

This essay considers the process of collaboration in the creation of new technologies, to identify commitments that serve as the foundation for successful collaborations across disciplines. These commitments are ethical in nature; they define a code of conduct for working in partnership with people who come from different disciplines, domains, cultural backgrounds, or worldviews. The ability to collaborate across differences is fundamental to successful interdisciplinary research and design, and is the basis for successful participation in cross-disciplinary teams. All interdisciplinary collaborations require the respectful recognition of different modes and rituals of knowledge production, and a willingness to engage and negotiate boundaries that are often fluid and indistinct.

Keywords: ethics, interdisciplinary research, cross-disciplinary collaboration, discipline, conduct
