Welcome to the TransVision 2010 website

Transvision 2010 is a global transhumanist conference and community convention, organized by several transhumanist activists, groups and organizations, under the executive leadership of the Italian Transhumanist Association (AIT) and with the collaboration of an Advisory Board. The event will take place on October 22, 23 and 24, 2010 in Milan, Italy with many options for remote online access.

While Transvision 2010 is not organized by or connected with Humanity+ (formerly WTA), the organizer of most previous Transvision conferences, we wish to thank the Humanity+ Board for allowing the use of the name.

TransVision 2010 will be a very intense, informative, scientific as well as entertaining tour de force in contemporary transhumanist thinking, activism, science, technology & innovation and grand visionary dreams, with over 40 talks distributed over three days.  Join us to explore the scientific, technological, cultural, artistic and social trends which could change our world beyond recognition and may result in a singularity in only a few decades.

The first day will be mainly dedicated to the philosophical, cultural and social aspects of transhumanism. We will also explore new forms of artistic expressions and design inspired by transhumanist thinking.

The second day will be mainly dedicated to technology: we will cover life extension, biotechnology and genetic engineering, cryonics and brain preservation, whole brain emulation and mind uploading, synthetic biology, virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, converging technologies and the technological singularity, and other transhumanist technologies, either already emerging from the research labs and almost ready for operational deployment, or still in a conceptual development phase.

The third day will be dedicated to the big picture, the wonderful cosmic adventures in which the human race is about to embark, leaving our little blue planet and spreading to the stars and beyond together with our AI mind children. We will also cover the metaphysical, spiritual, and even religious impact of transhumanist cosmic visions.

The conference program is packed with very well known and less known, but also outstanding, speakers. The morning sessions are reserved for invited talks, and the afternoon sessions are also open to contributed talks by other participants. The official language of the conference is English. We will also have some talks in Italian, for which simultaneous translation will be provided. Besides the main talks, the conference will feature round tables, debates, satellite meetings and social events. Please contact us for any question that you might have, register now, post a link to your blog, Twitter, Facebook etc., and consider submitting your proposal for a talk.

    Are times shown in the program “local” time at the physical location in Milan? It appears they are. And, it also appears that Milan is presently on daylight time, showing a present adjustment of +2 from GMT.

    Our times in the U.S. differ by -6 from Milan on the East Coast, so on that basis the starting times for sessions on Friday appear to be 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., here in Florida.

    On Saturday and Sunday the starting times (9:00 a.m. in Milan) appear to be 3:00 a.m., on the U.S. East Coast. Other areas need to adjust based on such sources as the World Clock.

    Perhaps everyone else has this figured out, but after printing out the program we weren’t so sure. Wanted to note here how we understand it’s going to work, for any who might be wondering. And, if we’ve got it all wrong, maybe somebody else will correct us by an additional comment! ( In which case thanks in advance!)

    Boundless Life,

    Fred & Linda Chamberlain
