Speaking at Convergence08


The format of this event is an UnConference.  If you are not familiar with the way in which UnConferences are run, please check this link.


Currently, we are not formally signing up any speakers for the sessions, which will be spontaneously organized on the day of the event, as standard for UnConferences.


We will have four different plenary sessions, and we're open for suggestions as to whom to invite to speak (these are suggestions only):


  1. Panel Discussion on Life-Extension (possibly Chris Heward, Aubrey de Grey, Michael West, Dr. Terry Grossman)
  2. ____________
  3. ____________
  4. ____________
