EMBO/EMBL Conference: 'The Future of our Species - evolution, disease and
What is the future of the human race, and how is it intertwined and in
competition with the rest of life on earth? Such questions interest not only
experts, but increasingly the general public, especially as the certainty
and probable consequences of global warming loom ever larger. But that is
only part of the equation. How do we see humans evolving in the context of
technological improvement? Where will the course of evolution by unnatural
selection take Homo sapiens next?
The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and the European
Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) invite you to discuss these and many
more topics in a multidisciplinary and international Science & Society
'The Future of our Species - evolution, disease and sustainable development'
takes place on 2-3 November 2007 at the EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany.
This is the 8th EMBO/EMBL joint conference on Science & Society. The
tradition is annually to bring together over 200 professionals and lay
participants from the general public, the biosciences, sociology,
philosophy, communication, journalism, science education and many other
