SENS3 Conference etc.

SENS3, the third biannual SENS conference was held 6-10 Sept 2007 at Queens College, Cambridge. An excellent summary of the conference is available at Ouroborus. Apparently, progress has been made by several researchers on multiple fronts. To access talks from previous conferences, go to SENS1 here, or SENS2 here.

Aubrey de Grey's SENS is a seven-part approach to engineering increased longevity in humans. SENS research is being funded by the Methuselah Foundation, and other funding agencies and individuals.

Other important recent conferences of note were the Singularity Summit in San Francisco and the Nano-Bio technology Conference in Tucson. Both of those conferences were well covered by Michael Anissimov.
