Conference Concludes Successfully

The two-day conference, The Future of Religions/Religions of the Future concluded Thursday afternoon. Eleven presenteds provided fascinating material for a robust discussion, which drew approximately 60 people on the first day and 30 the second. Presentations ranged from concrete discussions of the creation of religious facilities in Second Life, to a mixed-media improvisational performance, to an announcement of a new organization seeking inspiration through advanced technology.

DJs Nicki Petrichor and Cynthia Wilder concluded the sessions with their signature mixes of electronica and contemporary Middle Eastern music, allowing the discussion to continue in a more relaxed environment.

We at Extropia would like to express our deepest gratitude to our DJs for providing ritual and fun as a conference element; to presenters, for the quality of their work and their cheerful cooperation; to our attendees for contributing to a fascinating, safe and civil event; and especially to our partners in The Al-Andalus Project for their hard work in ensuring the conference’s success.

Full edited chatlogs of the entire event, along with the presenters’ text or slides where available, will be up on the conference website within a few days.
