To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Niels Bohr’s atomic theory, the University of Copenhagen is hosting a conference on December 4-6 entitled, “An Open World”. Citizen Lab Director Ron Deibert will participate in the conference and host a book talk.

On 3 December, Professor Deibert will host a book event to promote the paperback edition of his new book, Black Code.

On 4 December, Deibert will join the conference plenary at “An Open World: Science, Technology and Society in the light of Niels Bohr’s Thoughts”. The subject of the plenary is Military Technologies of Tomorrow. Alongside Ron Deibert, the discussion will feature Daniel Deudney, Jürgen Altmann and Dong-Pil Min.

International scholars and decision makers will attend the conference, and speakers will debate the free exchange of information in the light of Bohr’s idea of a world order based on openness. The ambition of the conference is to pen a joint letter to the United Nations with specific recommendations on openness as a means to cope with scientific and technological challenges.
