"Subtle Technologies Conference"
2000-05-13 until 2000-05-14
year zero one
We are currently inviting speakers to present at the third annual Subtle
Technologies Conference in Toronto. The Subtle Technologies Conference is an opportunity for scientists and
artists to come together and share each others language in those areas
which are still searching for definitions, explanations and meaning.
This conference blurs the boundaries between art and science. We are
looking for speakers to provide a global perspective on the exploration
of subtle phenomena and its representations.
Approaches that go beyond
mainstream theories and would be considered controversial are welcome.
The conference also has a mandate to explore forgotten or lost
technologies. Some of the topics which we are interested in having
represented by scientists and artists include but are not limited to
consciousness research, quantum physics including quantum computing and
other unconventional computing technologies, holographic modeling,
mathematical explorations including neural networks and fuzzy systems,
biomagnetics, alternative energy systems, chaos theory, genetics, sonic
explorations, alternative healing modalities, bioenergy, pharmacology,
theories of cosmology, neurobiology, sensing systems and devices,
cybernetics, artificial intelligence and parapsychology.
It is our goal to have a varied program to provide a forum for the
cross pollination of ideas. Presentations will be 45 minutes to 1 *
hours long including questions. Videoconferencing technology is
available for presentations by out of town speakers if necessary. An
honorarium will be offered to all speakers. Since the audience will be
from diverse backgrounds the presentation should be accessible to a
general audience. Please send a brief one page abstract of the topic you
would like to present to the co-ordinates listed below. If you have any
questions, feel free to contact us. If you know any one who would be
interested in speaking, please pass this invitation along to them. The
deadline for submissions is March 10, 2000.
