EMBO/EMBL Conference on Science an Society, Heidelberg, 2-3 November 2007
What is the future of the human race, and how is it intertwined and in competition with the rest of life on earth? Such questions interest not only experts, but increasingly the general public, especially as the certainty and probable consequences of global warming loom ever larger.
But that is only part of the equation. How do we see humans evolving in the context of technological improvement? Where will the course of evolution by unnatural selection take Homo sapiens next?
The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) invite you to discuss these and many more topics in a multidisciplinary and international Science & Society conference 'The Future of our Species - evolution, disease and sustainable development', which takes place on 2-3 November 2007 at the EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany.
This is the 8th EMBO/EMBL joint conference on Science & Society. The tradition is annually to bring together over 200 professionals and lay participants from the general public, the biosciences, sociology, philosophy, communication, journalism, science education and many other fields.
