Heidelberg hosts the first big neuroethics conference on European soil Friday, November 3, and Saturday, November 4. You can see the programme here. It looks very promising. Among the speakers is not only people who have already published several papers on neuroethics – Judy Illes, Turhan Canli, Erik Parens, Adina Roskies, and Paul Root Wolpe, for instance – but also a number of big shot neuroscientists without a previous track record in the field – Wolf Singer, Nikos Logothetis, Jean-Pierre Changeux, and Petra Störig, to name just a few. Furthermore, Alison Abbott, a correspondent for Nature will be there.
Since neither Thomas nor I will be able to go, I would very interested in hearing from prospective attendees who would be interested in filing a report from the meeting here on BrainEthics. Please send me an email at martins_AT_drcmr_DOT_dk.
UPDATE (Oct. 29). We have found a reporter!
