I was doing a search on physicist Lawrence Krauss to find that he is (now) at Arizona State University and director of the Origins program.

ASU is hosting a symposium that cuts across a wide range of disciplines including "the origin of the universe, origins of stars and planet, the origins of life, human origins, origins of consciousness and culture."

Save The Dates: April 3-6, 2009
Origins Symposium

The Origins Symposium will inaugurate the new Origins Initiative at ASU, which will be a University-wide transdisciplinary endeavor supporting research building on key areas of strength at ASU including: the origin of the universe, origins of stars and planet, the origins of life, human origins, origins of consciousness and culture. It will focus on specific topics and different times, and also build transdisciplinary bridges. A key component of Origins will also involve public outreach and education, as well as exploring new paradigms for undergraduate education.

An unprecedented public event to inaugurate the new Origins Initiative will be held April 6, 2009 Gammage Auditorium, and broadcast live on the web. We will assemble in one place a group containing the most well known scientific public intellectuals in the world. Speakers will include:

* Stephen Hawking
* Steven Pinker
* Richard Dawkins
* J. Craig Venter
* Lawrence Krauss
* Brian Greene
* Donald C. Johanson

Nobel Panel

And a Nobel Panel, including:

I'm hoping to find out more through the webcasts tomorrow. I think it's equal parts about developing a direction for future research and finding some cohesion across disciplines while examining prevailing theories. I could be wrong!
