Conference Announcement:

Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce the second interdisciplinary online scholarly conference within a cycle entitled Humans in a Technological World: The Anthropology of Technics. This event is hosted by The Philosophy of Technics Student Circle and the Institute of Philosophy of The Jagiellonian University, which is among the earliest and most prominent universities in Central and Eastern Europe. The conference will take place on May 9-10, 2019 in a virtual location used by Academia Electronica of The Institute of Philosophy at the Jagiellonian University, which functions within the virtual environment of Second Life (we will provide all essential information in the conference brochure). On the first day of the conference we will hold a meeting devoted to the establishment of The Polish Society of The Philosophy of Technics.

This conference, which will entirely take place in Second Life, aims to develop interdisciplinary dialogue within the field of anthropological technics and to integrate researchers who address subjects related to the role and place of humans in a dynamically changing world of technological and technical expansion. In particular, we are eager to listen to speakers who intend, through anthropological analysis, to discuss issues relating humans to the development of computer and information technology, the virtual environment, and a wide-range approach to artificial intelligence (automation, self-sustainability, and the singularity).

Due to the fact that technoanthropology is a relatively recent scientific discipline, we cordially invite all researchers of related fields such as cyber anthropology, digital anthropology, technoself-studies. We also welcome researchers from the fields of the philosophy of technology, psychology, literature studies, scholars of new media, members of the electronic art community and those who tackle topics associated with transhumanism and posthumanism.

Please submit the abstract of your twenty-minute talk to by March 31, 2019. Submission must include your academic degree, first and last name, your e-mail address, affiliation/ workplace, a title and abstract, and a statement of your consent giving permission for processing the data submitted for The Best Abstracts Contest. The organizers reserve the right to exclude and select submissions. We will inform you about your submission qualification or rejection by April 14, 2019.

The conference is free of charge (no conference fees), and participation certificates will be sent to each participating speaker.

If you have any questions, please send them to the following address:

Head of the Organizing Committee,
Mariusz Markiewicz (The Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland)
