Foresight Unconference on nanotechnology, advanced software, future technologies
PALO ALTO, CA | Posted on October 3rd, 2007
1st Foresight Unconference to Be Held November 3-4 in Silicon Valley
Event will explore nanotechnology, advanced software, life extension, future technologies
Palo Alto, CA — Foresight Nanotech Institute will hold its first-ever "Unconference" to explore coming technologies, their impacts, and opportunities to steer them to beneficial outcomes.
The Foresight Vision Weekend provides an "insider" forum where members gather and explore current trends and future consequences of nanotechnology in an informal environment. Participants develop, evaluate, and discuss ideas ranging from today's research and commercialization to 30-year prospects and beyond.
The Unconference format is highly interactive, with participants designing conference content in real time at the meeting. A special focus will be the Technology Roadmap for Productive Nanosystems, which lays out pathways to atomically-precise manufacturing.
This year's Vision Weekend will take place at Yahoo! Headquarters in Sunnyvale, California, on November 3-4, 2007.
