Anthropos e Technè – Update and Provisional Agenda

Elena Dell’Aquila (Plymouth University) from ENACT is part of the Organising Committee of the event “Anthropos e Technè”, announced last week. A provisional agenda has been drafted and the participating Labs will be confirmed soon.

The website of the event has now an English section with additional information, including travelling info, reported below:

Recently there has been an increasing interest of scientific research related to the investigation of the relationships between Human Science and New Technologies. As matter of fact, innovations and prototypes aimed at creating assistive technologies to support humans in various psychological, cognitive and social aspects have become part of our everyday lives. Moreover the well-established perspective of cybernetics aiming to build artificial systems (computer simulations, artificial life and intelligent systems, robots , etc.) reproducing and explaining natural phenomena (including human behaviours) has been employed as scientific research methodology by the all branches of scientific disciplines. The Antropos and Technè Symposium has the ambition to encourage and pave the way for initiatives creating fruitful and valuable ongoing exchanges between the two communities of “Humanists” and “Technologists”.

The program of the event comprises of different meetings in order to address professionals and experts in the field, as well as everyone who might be interested in participating.

Open Labs (dissemination meeting open to the wide public) at Castello Aragonese


The ancient town of Agropoli (from Greek, “high city”), founded by Byzantines  in 500 A.D, stands on the top of a promontory. The old town has remained mostly intact, includoing a substantial portion of the seventh-century old defensive walls and Aragonese entrance portal (Porta Aragonese). The old town can be accessed by the so called “scaloni” (big steps), a distinctive series of low and wide steps bringing to the Porta Aragonese and the Aragones Castel.

The Aragonese castle, built on the 6th century by Byzantines, still stands on top of the promontory. It has a triangular plan with three circular towers and a moat.

The old town also conserves the Churches of the Holy Mary of Constantinople (16th century), San Marco and San Francesco.

In the MunicipalAntiquarian (Palazzo Civico delle Arti), there is a sizeable collection of archaeological finds, representing life in the area from prehistoric to medieval eras.

From the Agropoli harbour a footpath leads along the coastal road to the suggestive bay of Trentova “Baia di Trentova” that contributes to make
