The Next 100 Symposium 2021

19 - 20. MAY | Prague
DOX - Centre for Contemporary Art


19-20 MAY 2021

The Next 100 addresses how the social and computational sciences can come together to face our future’s greatest global and political challenges.


Recognising the vast potential for collaboration between the technical and social sciences, The Next 100 Symposium aims to provide a platform for transformative dialogue between those working with society’s most cutting-edge technology and those working in social scientific fields.

We Will ...

  • bring together the most progressive minds in the technological and computing fields with influential social scientists and thinkers to discuss rising challenges to the global order;

  • start a dialogue on all levels about how to use the most innovative computing capabilities to address challenges in the social scientific sphere;

  • draft a new perspective on global normative and institutional frameworks, which will result in reflections and recommendations for future debates and endeavours, and in impact-related strategies and policy recommendations.

ReDefine Next 100 - 2021

The Next 100 ReDefiners program brings together selected students from diverse fields including humanities, social sciences, engineering, computing science, art and the natural sciences. The students form small international teams and identify one issue that they perceive to be the paramount global challenge for our future. Working collaboratively, teams incorporate innovative ideas from their respective fields and propose a way to address this challenge. Up to ten teams will be invited to Prague for a five day-long workshop, during which time they finalize their proposals. The top teams, as selected by a panel of experts, will be invited to present their ideas at the Next 100 Symposium.

The world must establish a genuine dialogue between the most advanced technologies and artificial reasoning capabilities on the one hand, and the normative and critical capabilities of the social sciences on the other. We have reached the point where their mutual inspiration and cross-fertilization is a must.
