The H+ Summit @Melbourne is Coming to Town (25-26th June 2011)! The H+
Summit @ Melbourne <http://www.humanityplus.org.au/conference>  brings
together an eclectic mix
<http://humanityplus.org.au/2011/03/23/program-hplus-melb-2011/>  of
rationalists, futurists, science fiction writers, AI experts, scientists,
biotechnology experts, philosophers and theorists to pursue deep
philosophical, scientific and technological inquiry, with the aim of being
able to discern those changes which are likely to have profound impacts and
those which are merely transient and or fashionable.

Technological innovation permeates all aspects of society - from tiny water
purification packets and 3d printers, to GPS tracking devices, wearable
smart devices, decision support systems, replaceable body parts and personal
genome tests. Because technology and society evolve together, it has become
increasingly important to develop a greater understanding of how technology
is shaping the course of our lives. We are faced with the challenge to
continuously become innovative in harnessing and controlling technological
development as it accelerates on many diverse fronts. The "pioneers of the
future" are faced with the necessity to become ever more resourceful. Even
the most conservative thinkers agree that we have already stepped into an
era of a profound change. The good news is that our human diversity
continues to spawn both inventiveness and novelty.

This conference is brought to you by Humanity+ @ Melbourne (Victoria,
Australia). Humanity+ explores how society might use and profit from a
variety of creative and innovative thought. Join us for this adventurous
journey into the future where you can make a difference! This conference
will challenge and enhance your view of the future.

Seating is limited, so Secure your tickets now!
