CONTACT's 30th Anniversary Poster

CONTACT has evolved into a premier forum on the future. After 29 years of our multi-disciplinary conferences, CONTACT includes some of the brightest of the new generation at NASA and SETI, scientists hard and soft, and as well as such exotics as anthropologists, philosophers, poets, filmmakers, historians, mathematicians and space lawyers. And the science fiction community (Kim Stanley Robinson plans to join us again this year) always adds a brand of innovative and responsible speculation that has made our conference and organization unique.
