Come to Gothenburg, Sweden, for the Workshop on existential risk to humanity that I am organizing on September 7-8 this year! The topic is a matter of life and death for the human civilization, but I still expect the workshop to be stimulating and enjoyable. The list of world-class researchers who are confirmed as speakers at the workshop include several who are already known to readers of this blog: Stuart Armstrong, Seth Baum, Robin Hanson, James Miller, Anders Sandberg and Roman Yampolskiy. Plus the following new aquaintances: Milan Cirkovic, David Denkenberger, Karin Kuhlemann, Catherine Rhodes, Susan Schneider and Phil Torres. All of these will in fact stay in town for various durations before and/or after the workshop, at the guest research program on existential risk that runs throughout September and October.
The workshop is open to all interested, and participation is free of charge. Pre-registration, however, is required.
