Maurer School of Law Moot Court (Law 123), IU Bloomington

Peter Galison, the Joseph Pellegrino University Professor in the Department of Physics and Philosophy of Science at Harvard University, will posit on such questions: How can we track the history of the self from the 1920s through the early 2000s by following quite material technologies? What, for example, did Hermann Rorschach's famous ink-blot tests presuppose about the self, and once these images came into play millions of times, how did they reshape our broad conception of the self? How do cybernetic-feedback machines press on our notion of intention? How do massive technological failures reshape our understanding of the shifting relation between human and machine causation -- even what counts as the boundary between people and nature?

The International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases 2011 (SSTD 2011) is the 12th event of a series of biannual symposia that discuss new and exciting research in spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal data management and related technologies and start setting future research directions. The primary focus of SSTD symposia is on original results in the areas of theoretical foundations, design, implementation, and applications of spatial and temporal database technology. SSTD also welcomes experience reports from application specialists and the commercial community that describe lessons learned in the development, operation, and maintenance of actual systems in practical and innovative applications. The goal is to exchange research ideas and results which will initially contribute to the academic arena, but may also benefit the commercial community in the near future and encourage a dialogue between practitioners and researchers.
