Sackler Colloquium on Creativity and Collaboration: Revisiting Cybernetic Serendipity

March 13-14, 2018

National Academy of Sciences
2101 Constitution Ave., N.W.
Washington, D.C.

This conference's ambition is to redirect the history of ideas, restoring the Leonardo-like close linkage between art/design and science/engineering/medicine. The organizers believe that internet-enabled collaborations can make more people more creative more of the time.

Speakers include Smithsonian Secretary David Skorton as the Tuesday night keynote. This will be a free public speech

The colloquium speakers are committed to making sustainable changes to research, education, government, and business. Read more here.

The colloquium will explore ways that art/design and science/engineering/medicine research can yield productive partnerships that address the grand challenges of our times. It is an invitation to think differently, to be ambitious, and to collaborate using powerful technologies and innovative social mechanisms.

Registration is now open with a fee of $200, but we have arranged for funding to allow registrations at $50 to the first 100 people who request this subsidy---artists, students, and others without funding.
