Virginia Tech - Invent the Future
Contemplative Practices for a Technological Society - Cultivating Mind Body Practices to Invent Our Future - April 11-13, 2013 - The Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center - Blacksburg, Virginia

The conference is currently configured as an extended, facilitated conversation about contemplative practice. It is our intention that this structure will allow everyone to voice his or her experience. We also have limited space for some contributions.

A 1-hour Poster session is scheduled for Friday, April 12, 5:30-6:30 PM. The poster session provides an opportunity to speak informally with a large number of colleagues and display some aspects of your work visually on a poster. No audio-visual equipment is available, but presenters may use personal laptop computers (outlets are limited-you may wish to bring an additional battery). Wireless Internet access will be available throughout the conference space.
