The International Society for Science and Religion is offering a brief conference on the theme of “New Challenges in Science and Religion.”
The conference will be held at the Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, on 22-23 November 2013. It opens at 2 pm on Friday, 22 November and conclude at noon on Saturday, just prior to the opening of the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Religion.
Those planning to attend AAR will be able to attend “New Challenges” by simply arriving a day early. No registration or fee is required to attend this conference. It is open to ISSR members and to the general public at no cost.
The exact schedule of speakers is yet to be determined, but the conference will consist of four panels, one each on recent developments in cosmology, neuroscience, and human origins and their significance for research in science and religion. The fourth panel will address the field of science and religion in general, focusing on where the field is going and where it should go in the rest of this decade.
