Next week, I’ll be attending the Future of Science Conference in Venice, Italy (September 20-23). The conference theme is Evolution and we’ll be covering the Evolution of Life: Darwinism in the light of modern genetics session. The plan is to interview some of the speakers and panel participants.
It’s an incredible line up; Peter Atkins, Ian Tattersall, Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza, Daniel Dennett, Marc Hauser, Steven Pinker, among others. We’ll be posting interviews to the Tech Museum’s Understanding Genetics website later in the month. The video interviews will also be availabe via podcast. The setting is about as nice as it gets too, the conference will be held at the Giorgio Cini Foundation on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore.
We’ll post an update from the conference (time permitting) and we’ll let you know when the interviews are available. You can also check in on the conference live as the proceedings will be webcast live via “alice.it.” There’s more information about that on the Future of Science website.
Update (10-11-06): There’s more on the conference in the Future of Science category in this blog. We’re working on the interviews, they should be available on the Tech Museum’s site and through iTunes in the next wee
