About the EMDoc Conference
This friendly and relaxed conference will be hosted at the University of Nottingham and is a great opportunity to promote your research, and meet and network with other postgraduate research students from around the East Midlands. The conference aims to encourage interdisciplinary dialogue among postgraduate students from a range of disciplines. The theme for the 2017 conference is “Global Perspectives” – how your research impacts global challenges or inspires a better future. This could be by developing a potential solution to a specific problem, discovering a new way of working, opening up a new way of thinking about a subject, or inspiring others to make a change in the world.

For further information please email Tammy Greeno or Shineen Dewil on graduate-school@nottingham.ac.uk

Artificial Lives: Imagining Life | Call for papers

AI
Artificial Lives University of Sussex

Late November 2017 (Date TBC)

This conference is the first of an interdisciplinary series investigating developments in the arts and sciences responding to the manufacturing of being, and will feature keynote presentations from artist Paul Vanouse and Sherryl Vint of UCR.

In the wake of the creation of the first stable semisynthetic organism, and numerous other developments in the enhancing and manufacturing of artificial life, thinkers and practitioners across disciplines are seeking to reconceive our understanding of extended being. Significant developments in fields including, and not limited to Biopolitics, Disability Studies, Affect studies, Post humanism and Medical Humanities have contributed to a new understanding of the limits and nature of the human, and of the environment. As the gap between speculation and reality narrows, this conference provides a timely opportunity to survey and reflect on the impact of synthesised lifeforms on our picture of the lifeworld.

Please submit an abstract and short bio via the website: https://artificiallives.wordpress.com/contact/
