For the second time at Utopia, the annual mini-symposium "Robots in Human Society" will take place, discussing the ramifications of the introduction of robotics into the human environment from a social and cultural point of view.

We encourage contrasting points of view from scientists, engineers, humanists, artists, social scientists, law scholars, writers, and others, on this increasingly pertinent topic.
