Past Conferences

The first annual Conference on Governance of Emerging Technologies: Law, Policy & Ethics, was held May 20-21, 2013, in Chandler, Arizona, and featured sixty-five presentations and over one hundred attendees. It focused on the GRINN technologies (genetics, robotics, information technology, nanotechnology, neuroscience), which present unique governance issues and challenges, due to their rapid pace of development (faster than traditional regulatory systems can keep up with), profound impacts that go beyond health, safety and environment risks, and ethical and social concerns affecting a broad range of stakeholders and interests around the globe. It featured top experts in a fascinating and crucial exploration of the overlapping regulatory, governance, legal, policy, social and ethical issues of such technologies.
