SETI Symposium

20 July 2016
Jogja National Museum

SETI - Evolution of the Unknown Symposium is the first international SETI symposium being held in Indonesia and is a collaboration between v.u.f.o.c and Data for Life 2016.

Both Data for Life 2016 and SETI - Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute aim to explain to the science world and the broader public that there are "unlimited" possibilities out there in the effort of advancing humanity. The symposium invites participants whose work is on the horizon of the known, from various fields, across science, the arts, athletics, humanities and other less traditional fields of study to share their experiences of confronting the unknown, and the impact of the unknown on culture and imagination. Participants are also encouraged to bring any experiments or works they have made that may create encounters with the unknown, in a form that others may interact with.
