Bonjour à tous,

Dans le cadre de la préparation de la Conférence internationale Laval Virtual 2012, notre ami Colin nous invite à faire savoir si nous aurions des contributions (in english !-) à lui faire parvenir. L'appel n'est pas réservé aux enseignants chercheurs mais est ouvert aux étudiants diplômés.

J'insiste sur l'importance de cet évènement qui, cette année, consacre un symposium entier à la question de l'Augmentation humaine :

|| Int'l Symposium on "Enhancing Human Experience via Emerging Technologies", a CNRS proj. named "EpistHOMME+" || 28 March 2012, Laval FRANCE

Within the framework of the CNRS proj. named "EpistHOMME+", we are pleased to host:

Enhancing Human Experience via Emerging Technologies -March 28, 2012, 10h-18h

Young and old alike believe that the human experience could gain something if better informed about up-coming technologies. Learning about them at an early stage helps in making key decisions about one's personal future. Although the approach is somewhat individual and devoted to those concerned, collectively oriented health and entertainment will gain from observing individual practices in the matter. Government policy incorporating emergent technology progress through monitoring will renew itself in a relevant way. However, in the name of progress people are increasingly willing to accept risk; the possible downfall of this movement is its ability to promote taking risks. But then again, could we or would we want to stop it? If we are to enhance the human experience, the pros and cons of each situation must be considered. Modifying or augmenting humans surely raises a certain number of issues. What are they? What aspect of life should one proceed to enhance? Which sectors or issues should become priority elements? Which academic disciplines are involved and why? What limits technological change? Does one have an acceptance threshold? If so, how would one express it? What are the long term implications of enhancement? Establishing a topology of possible applications and their contexts would be desirable for this symposium on enhancing members of our society.

The following non-exhaustive list may be used to provoke thought on this topic: Keywords & Topics:

Definitions of enhancement ▪ Robot companions for citizens ▪ Jungling multiple identities ▪ Advanced interfaces for increasing social presence ▪ Augmented health ▪ Epistemology of tech. innovation ▪ Care-giving robots ▪ Psychological analysis of acceptance ▪ Augmented Well-being ▪ Ubiquitous internet or computing ▪ Social roles in emerging tech. contexts ▪ Holistic, pragmatic and systemic approaches to resolving well-being difficulties ▪ Augmented Context-Awareness ▪ Communication enabling and enhancing tech. ▪ Incommunicability ▪ Human factors psychology and needs assessment ▪ Mind/body problem ▪ New worlds and belief revision ▪ Moral and ethical dimensions of enhancement ▪ Hybrid engineering ▪ Progress and technological obsolescence ▪ Co-constructed experiences ▪ Interventionism or Science policy issues ▪ The notions of Self or Identity in human experience ▪ Public information points and communication devices ▪ Technological Singularity success or failure ▪ Roles of otherhood in one's experiences ▪ Cognitive enhancement ▪ Theoretical controversies ▪ Emergent intentional states ▪ The intersection of the Arts, design and technology ▪ Transhumanistic stances ▪ Augmented emotion ▪ etc.
