20TH ANNIVERSARY OF TRANSVISION CONFERENCES
Spain will host the next global transhumanist summit during October 19-20-21, 2018. HumanityPlus will be the main international organizer of this world congress, TransVision 2018, with the help of other leading associations and organizations working on transhumanist concepts like longevity extension, artificial inteliligence, human enhancement and other technologies and future trends. The first TransVision conference was held during 1998 in The Netherlands.
During the last 20 years, we have seen phenomenal advances, and we expect to see much more during the next 20 years. What will the future bring? Science and technology should lead the way! Now we are planning to host in Spain the 20th anniversary of the TransVision conferences, an international summit open to people from all continents, with participants coming from the United States to the United Kingdom, from Argentina to Australia, from Africa to China, from Russia to Venezuela.
The topics considered will be very broad, ranging from recent medical advances to artificial intelligence and robotics. The first keynote speaker will be Sophia, the first humanoid robot that was awarded citizenship last year. TransVision 2018 will have other keynote speeches by pioneers of the transhumanist movement like Natasha Vita-More and Ben Goertzel, among many others, both members of HumanityPlus and other leading institutions.
Madrid will become the meeting point for this transhumanist celebration, where different groups from around the world will gather to connect and closely work together. The objective is to combine the international reunions with local audiences and to help promote transhumanist research and development in Spain and around the world. In partnership with pioneering sponsors, we will do our best in scientific dissemination to make society aware of the new economy and opportunities coming within the next two decades. Abstracts from participants are welcome for posters, papers and oral presentations until June 1, 2018.
