Alcor Conference 2022

Conference about cryonics and life extension organized by Alcor with David Chalmers and George Church as featured speakers

03-Jun-2022 to 05-Jun-2022

This year, the Alcor Life Extension Foundation is celebrating its 50th year. To mark the occasion, we are holding a conference on June 3-5, 2022, at the Scottsdale Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The conference itself will be Alcor’s first major in-person gathering in seven years, so we’re going to “go big.” We expect members, prospective members, and others interested in life extension and the far future to turn out enthusiastically. We hope not only that our attendees will enjoy hearing from and interacting with you, but also that you may find the experience enjoyable. There is no organization quite like Alcor, after all, and very few opportunities to explore cryonics and its implications for society now and in the far future.

Although many people look at cryonics as their “plan B,” our perspective at this event is that cryonics is Plan A. Probably everyone will need cryonics in order to reach a time where aging has been brought under control—and many people will need it sooner than they would like. That will be one of the topics discussed at the conference, along with research in cryonics, research in life extension more generally, financial planning for the very long term, lessons about cultural change from previous movements, and practical life extension.

Featured speakers at this conference are David Chalmers and George Church.

Other speakers are:

- Patrick Harris

- Dennis Kowalski

- Emil Kendziorra

- Peter Tsolakides

- Gregory Fahy

- Max Marty

- Steve Graber

- Brian Wowk

- Max More
