UNESCO's Sponsorship

The conference's organizers are deeply pleased to inform our readers that UNESCO has decided to sponsor the 1st International Conference on Anticipation.

While we have already received more than 150 abstracts, we think it is fair to  give interested scholars and practitioners a further chance to submit their abstracts.

For this reason, the deadline for the submission of abstracts has been postponed to June, the 15th.

Anticipation through Migration?

Migration processes and policies as a source of critical insight on anticipation

Convenors: Paolo Boccagni, Milena Belloni (University of Trento)

This workshop, which is part of an International Conference on Anticipation (November 5-7, 2015), aims to revisit international migration as a field for the development of anticipation studies. By combining research on migrant’s life experience, on migration-related institutions and on migration policies, it will assess the prospects for anticipation and future studies to feed into migration studies, and on the mutual connections between these research fields.

Anticipatory Engineering

What might the explicit acknowledgement of anticipation contribute to existing engineering practice and theory? Whenever an engineer creates a model of a system the purpose is almost certainly to anticipate scenarios, usually resulted from a trade-off between expected performance and available budget. 

Are there costs of being trapped in a functional role of instrumental rationality?

The special session of International Conference on Anticipation (November 5-7, 2015), will focus on how anticipation and related topics could illuminate problems in engineering.

Convenors:

  • Mike Yearworth (Faculty of Engineering, University of Bristol, UK)
  • Janet Willis Singer (International Society for the Systems Sciences, Santa Cruz, USA)
  • Rick Adcock (Cranfield Defence and Security, Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, Shrivenham, UK)
  • Michael Singer (International Society for the Systems Sciences, Santa Cruz, USA)
  • Duane Hybertson (The MITRE Corp, Washington DC, USA)
