Mihai Nadin was invited to deliver the keynote address at the Second International Conference on Anticipation, to be held November 8-10, 2017 in London.
Anticipation and Medicine, the third in a series of three international conferences took place at the Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg/Institute for Advanced Study (Delmenhorst, Germany) on September 28-30, 2015.
Among the topics presented—and met with enthusiastic discussion: Anticipation and the Brain, Unorthodox Forms of Anticipation, Anticipating Diabetes, Wearable Health Devices, Adaptive Games, Intelligent Support for Surgeons, Breast Cancer, Anticipation and Autism, Safety and Quality in Healthcare, Personalized Proactive Medicine. The volume containing 23 texts, will be released by Springer in early 2017.

Forthcoming Publication: Anticipation Across Disciplines (M. Nadin, Editor). Springer Cognitive Systems Monographs 29. To appear in 2016
Anticipation Across Disciplines, released in Fall 2016, is the second book in a series of three volumes, published in the Springer series Cognitive Systems Monographs. Papers presented at the international conference (September 22-24, 2014) of the same name cover topics such as information processing, politics, botany, architecture, botany, anticipatory computation, computer science, education, art/creativity. Readers seeking a foundation for anticipation will find in this book recent outcomes pertinent to plant life, political anticipation, cognitive science, architecture, computation. Leading scholars in economics, energy research, oceanography, engineering, and behavioral sciences working in the defining spirit of interdisciplinarity implied by anticipation provide rich evidence of anticipatory processes at work of a very large scope: from an art event (documented in this book) to experiments in neuroscience, anticipation in engineering, anticipatory expression in plants, anticipation in politics, and anticipatory computing.

Professor and PhD Student Advance Anticipatory Research
Mihai Nadin: “Even those who avoid any contact with the technology cannot live without it.” Interview by Titus Vijeu, Ziarul de Duminica, February 5, 2016
New Publication: Anticipation:Learning from the Past – The Russian/Soviet Contributions to the Science of Anticipation
This volume presents the work of leading scientists from Russia, Georgia, Estonia, Lithuania, Israel and the USA, revealing major insights long unknown to the scientific community. Without any doubt their work will provide a springboard for further research in anticipation. Until recently, Robert Rosen (Anticipatory Systems) and Mihai Nadin (MIND – Anticipation and Chaos) were deemed forerunners in this still new knowledge domain.
Nadin Co-publishes a Guest Editorial with Andres Kurismaa
Nadin’s work on anticipation and the adaptive automobile highlighted in Corriere della Sera, Technology, April 8, 2014: “L’auto che invecchia con te I desideri esauditi in un clic.”
International conference: Anticipation Across Disciplines to be held in September 2014
“…humanity’s future will be shaped by its capacity to anticipate?.” (Research Agenda for the 21st Century, National Science Foundation). This is the premise of a series of international conferences organized within the Study Group: Anticipation Across Disciplines under the direction of Prof. Dr. Mihai Nadin and with the assistance of the Neuroscience Program at the Hanse Institute for Advanced Study.
Honorary Fellow Bestowed
In December 2013, the Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg/Hanse Institute for Advanced Studies bestowed its first award as Honorary Fellow upon Dr. Mihai Nadin, “in recognition of outstanding achievements and great support for the Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg”.
ArtRendezvousScience (ARS) Colloquia Series at ATEC/EMAC
Initiated by Mihai Nadin in September 2013. Invited inaugural speaker from computer technology industry drew the largest audience on record.
Awarded Distinguished Scholar Fellowship
at the Hanse Wissenshaftskolleg/Institute for Advanced Study, Delmenhorst Germany (September 1, 2011-June 30, 2012). During this period, Nadin pursued his research in anticipatory systems within the Neurosciences/Cognitive Sciences Program. Interacting with Hanse’s international group of Fellows, Nadin offered lectures and symposia on the benefit of anticipatory systems to a variety of fields:
- – Anticipation aspects of time in regard to brain and organs. Symposium: Time and the Conscious Brain, October 31-November 2, 2011
- – Anticipation aspects of motivation, preferences, and decisions in regard to economics and political science. Seminar: Motivation, Preferences, and Decisions – Experiments in Economics and Political Science, Brain. Hanse Institute for Advanced Study, Delmenhorst, Germany Nov. 23, 2011.
- – Consequentialist Ethics Workshop, February 16-17, 2012
- – Brains, Games, and (Social) Neurons: Physics and Social Sciences in Discussion, May 11, 2012
- – Seminar: Anticipation—Examples of Anticipatory Expression in the Framework of Neuroscience, May 29, 2012
London’s Victoria and Albert Museum notified Nadin that his early computer generated art would be included in their collection devoted to pioneers in computer art (2012).
After publication of Nadin’s “The Privilege of Memories,” the Holocaust Memorial Museum decided to obtain a copy for their library (2011).
“AnticipationScope and the Anticipatory Profile”
is the title of Nadin’s lecture at the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg/Hanse Institute for Advanced Study on January 29, 2012. Presented in the framework of the Distinguished Fellow Lectures, it reflects original research and a broader theoretic perspective.
