Are you always looking for ways to keep up with the latest advancements in science and the implications of them on our society? Are you skeptical of the notion that “more progress is always better” when it comes to scientific advances? If so, then Harvard’s DayCon might be for you!

DayCon is a free, daylong science conference run/sponsored by Harvard University. Read below for more details, which we’ve cross-posted from their site.

**You must go to this Harvard website to RSVP for this event** http://sitn.hms.harvard.edu/daycon/

Technology: it’s everywhere, from the medicine that keeps you healthy to the computer you’re using to read this message. Undoubtedly, it impacts every aspect of our lives and is only expected to become more ubiquitous. But is more progress always better? Join us to learn more about the excitement – and ethical debates – surrounding the major innovations of our time at DayCon 2018: Tomorrow’s Tech, Today!

DayCon is a free, daylong science conference consisting of talks and interactive demonstrations given by graduate student scientists. This year’s topics include artificial intelligence, CRISPR gene editing, engineering the microbiome, virus-based technologies, quantum computing, and more!

DayCon is generously supported by Harvard Integrated Life Sciences, Harvard Medical School, Harvard Division of Medical Sciences, Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Graduate Student Council, and Addgene.

When: Saturday, June 2, 10 AM – 4:30 PM (complimentary lunch will be served)
