Tagung der Graduate School "Topology of Technology" zum Thema "Technologies of Globalization"

Conference: Technologies of Globalization
October 30 - 31, 2008 in Darmstadt

The Graduate School „Topology of Technology“ at TU Darmstadt is organizing an international conference on the spatial dimensions of past and current technologies.
Presently (re-)shaping social life as well as economics and science, the effects of globalization are in their turn – and in manifold ways – related to and in fact highly dependent on technology. The first International Conference of the DFG-post graduate school “Topologies of Technology” seeks to explore in greater detail and from a delibarately interdisciplinary angle the role(s) and function(s) of world-embracing information and communication technologies, transport and computing facilities in the global age.

The panels which will be at the core of the conference are centered around four keynotes dealing with the technological dimensions of globalization (Dr. Sattelberger, head of HR, Deutsche Telekom), with the economic and financial significance of globalization (Dr. Reinhard Blomert, Chief Editor "Leviathan"), with the relationship between globalization and science (Prof. J.-D. Wörner, CEO of the German Aerospace Center), and with the spatial dimensions of urban environments in a global context (Prof. Jyoti Hosagrahar, Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation, Columbia University). The conference will conclude with a panel discussion of its main theme.
