Event Details:

The Stanford LASERs are part of a national program of gatherings that brings artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversation with the audience. Each evening event, free of charge and open to the public, will present four artists, scientists, thinkers, inventors, and scholars who are working on paradigm shifts. Each evening also allows the audience to socialize and encourages people in the audience to briefly introduce their own work. Chaired by cultural historian Piero Scaruffi.

The evening will feature presentations by:

  • Jenn Smith (Assistant Professor of Biology at Mills College) on "Leadership in Mammalian Societies: Emergence, Distribution, Power, and Payoff"
  • Greg Niemeyer (Associate Professor of the UC Berkeley Center for New Media and Founder of the Stanford University Digital Art Center) on "Searching for Aesthetics of Climate Change among Eskimo and Scientists"
  • David Anderson (Research Scientist at Space Sciences Laboratory at UC Berkeley) on "An Introduction to SETI@home"
  • Lisa Wymore (Associate Professor and Department Vice-Chair, Department of Theater, UC Berkeley) on "Improvisational Dance Within Computer Augmented Spaces: Dancing with the Unknowable"

Location: Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge at Stanford University School of Medicine, Room LK130. There should be ample parking in the structure on corner of Campus Drive West and Roth Way.

The Stanford LASERs are sponsored by the Stanford Deans of Engineering; Humanities & Sciences; Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences; Medicine and the Office of Science Outreach.
