“Longevity Day” (based on the UN International Day of Older Persons – October 1st) is a day of support for biomedical aging and longevity research. This has been a worldwide international campaign successfully adopted by many longevity activists groups.
Venue: Level 1, 20 Queen Street, Melbourne, Australia 3000
3.00pm Guests Dr. Randal A. Koene and Keith Wiley – who’ll take part in a live conversation about the metaphysics of mind-uploading.
4.00pm Representative of Stasis Systems Australia, Matt Fischer – who’ll be talking about the current state of cryonics in Australia, it’s desirability and then a Q&A session afterwards.
5.00pm Co-ordinator Adam Karlovsky – who’ll be directing an inclusive discussion about the ethics, promises and pitfalls of life extension.
Afternoon snacks and drinks will be provided, and you are encouraged to bring some to share, or for yourself if you have any dietary requirements.
A social dinner may be organized afterwards, somewhere close by. Express interest if you’d enjoy coming along.
Because centrally located venues are hard to come by for small groups, there’s a small $5 entry to cover electricity and cleaning.
This is Melbourne’s first Longevity Day celebration ever, so bring along your friends and family to help make this a good one!
Alongside Longevity Day is the conference for the International Society on Aging and Disease (ISOAD) that will take place in Stanford, on September 30 – October 2
