Anticipation 2017 is a unique, radically interdisciplinary forum for exploring how ideas of the future inform action in the present. It brings together researchers, policy makers, scholars and practitioners to push forward thinking on issues ranging from modelling, temporality and the present to the design, ethics and power of the future. The next Anticipation conference will take place in Oslo 2019.


On the 8th to 10th November 2017 the 2nd International Conference on Anticipation was held at Senate House, School of Advanced Study in Central London. The purpose of the conference was to provide an interdisciplinary meeting ground in which researchers, scholars and practitioners who are seeking to understand anticipation and anticipatory practices could come together to deepen their understanding and create productive new connections.
