Join leading academics for 1:1 networking, exclusive panels, talks and Q&As, discussion of research/funding/internship/job opportunities, and more. The conference will offer ample opportunities for potential collaborators, mentors and mentees, funders and grantees, and employers and potential employees to connect with one another. This conference will provide an opportunity for the global community interested in safeguarding the future to create a common understanding of the importance and scale of existential risks, what we can do to mitigate them, and the growing field of existential risk mitigation.
Topics covered in the conference include risks from advanced artificial intelligence, preventing global/engineered pandemics and risks from synthetic biology, extreme climate change, and nuclear risks. The conference will also showcase the existing existential risk field and opportunities to get involved - careers/internships, funding, research, community and more.
