The Royal Society is planning a new mini-conference about detection of life in the universe and a social and political agenda: "Towards a scientific and societal agenda on extra-terrestrial life". It will take place on October 4th and 5th 2010. The event is organised by Dr Martin Dominik and Professor John Zarnecki. Four panel discussions are scheduled: 1) Calling ET, or not even answering the phone? 2) Societal questions raised by the detection of extra-terrestrial life. 3) What could studies of extra-terrestrial life tell us about the future of humanity? 4) Extra-terrestrial life and arising political issues for the UN agenda.
