The International Conference on Anticipation is emerging as one of the leading disciplinary and interdisciplinary knowledge events engaging in futures oriented inquiry. As a platform, the conference iterates an assembly of core aims with variations and specifics.
The first conference in Trento, Italy helped establish Anticipation as a knowledge domain and especially views on Anticipation as a Science. The second conference in London, UK, took up a wider complementary lens on Anticipation Studies.
By being located at a ‘design’ university in Oslo, Norway, this third conference opens out to matters of materiality, practice along side concerns of its precedents. It also seeks to provide some measure of how the conference might develop and flourish. In this sense, the event is a design one and its draws from and towards design based inquiry, already in much futures work and analysis but moreso in and through ‘research through design’.
