Aim of the workshop:
Looking for E.T.: The scientific hunt for extraterrestrial intelligence is now well into its fifth decade, and we still haven't uncovered a confirmed peep from any cosmic company. Could this mean that finding aliens, even if they exist, is a project for the ages – one that might take centuries or longer? New technologies for – and new approaches to – the Search forExtraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) suggest that, despite the continued dearth of signals, there is good reason to expect that success might not be far off – that we might find evidence of sophisticated civilizations within a few decades. What would a contact tell us, and what would it mean to us, and to our descendants?
