From 8th to 10th November 2017 the 2nd International Conference on Anticipation will provide an interdisciplinary meeting ground in which researchers, scholars and practitioners who are seeking to understand anticipation and anticipatory practices can come together to deepen their understanding and create productive new connections.

The overarching aim of the conference and of the emerging field of Anticipation Studies is to create new understandings of how individuals, groups, institutions, systems and cultures use ideas of the future to act in the present. This conference will build on the 1st Conference of Anticipation, held in Trento, Italy in 2015 which saw over 350 delegates gather to explore topics ranging from design futures, to anticipatory economics and the philosophy of the present.


Anticipation 2017 is a unique, radically interdisciplinary forum for exploring how ideas of the future inform action to the present. It brings together researchers, policy makers, scholars, and practitioners to push forward thinking on issues ranging from modeling, temporaility and the present to the design, ethics, and power of the future.
