Hughes, Wallach & LaGrandeur @ Governance of Emerging Technologies: Law, Policy and Ethics

May 20-21, 2013
Chandler, Arizona

The GRINN technologies (genetics, robotics, information technology, nanotechnology, neuroscience) 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. This conference will feature top experts in a fascinating and crucial exploration of the overlapping regulatory, governance, legal, policy, social and ethical issues of such technologies.
