Contact 2014

Dates: March 21 – 23, 2014
Location: Mountain View and Sunnyvale, California

Contact is a unique interdisciplinary conference which brings together some of the foremost international social and space scientists, science fiction writers and artists to exchange ideas, stimulate new perspectives and encourage serious, creative speculation about humanity’s future, onworld and offworld.

Each year we meet to promote the integration of human factors into space age research and policy, emphasize the interaction of the Arts and Sciences and their technologies, and develop ethical approaches in cross-cultural contact, whenever and wherever it occurs.

Contact 2014 will feature a keynote address by NASA Planetary Scientist Chris McKay, PhD.
