European Future Technologies Conference, Prague, Czech Republic
The European Future Emerging Technologies (FET 09) conference is being organised by the Future and emerging technologies research scheme of the European Commission, the Czech Technical University and the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in Prague, Czech Republic, from 21 to 23 April 2009.
Under the title 'Science beyond fiction', the focus will be on creating new visions and actions for future information and communication technologies (ICTs), based on the scientific opportunities which are available today. The conference will explore new synergies between established disciplines such as computer science, neuroscience, biology, chemistry and economics, and emerging disciplines such as nanoscience and quantum computing. The event will also stimulate new bridges between the exact and social sciences.
FET 09 is the first European forum dedicated to frontier research in future and emerging information technologies and the scientific, societal and policy challenges in this domain. Expected attendees include scientists from around the world, policy makers and industry representatives.For further information on the event, please visit:
