Our international Symposium brings together an international array of key thinkers in the fledgling academic study of unidentified aerospace phenomena (UAP) to discuss fundamental methodological, epistemological, and ontological questions surrounding the UAP phenomenon.
It will include an exploration and critical assessment of crucial social, political and cultural issues connected with this elusive phenomenon. In addition to talks presented by a subset of our distinguished participants, there will be several panel discussions on a variety of impactful UAP-related topics.
Major UAP research organizations and data-gathering teams will be hosting virtual booths in the exhibition hall, giving attendees a chance to directly connect with the exhibitors. In doing so, Limina hopes to encourage a cross-fertilization of ideas and an ecosystem of exchange among groups dedicated to the empirical study of UAP.
We would like to thank EnigmaLabs for their generous financial support, as well as a number of private donors whose contributions have helped make this event happen.
Our Symposium brings together a unique blend of distinguished scholars and researchers from the sciences, the humanities and social sciences, along with accomplished non-academic professionals who have an abiding interest in the serious study of unidentified aerospace phenomena.
