Alan Dean Foster prize for best papers
Alan Dean Foster has kindly offered 10 books of his new novel "The Human Blend" as the subject matter is full of speculation on the future (legal and illegal) of human body modification for specific cultural and physical ends. 5 of these books will be given to the 5 best papers of the conference and 5 will be given to 5 lucky attendees drawn at random during the conference. As the second volume "Body, INC." may appear in time for the conference, more books may be available!
Alan Dean Foster's work to date includes excursions into hard science-fiction, fantasy, horror, detective, western, historical, and contemporary fiction. He has also written numerous non-fiction articles on film, science, and scuba diving, as well as having produced the novel versions of many films, including such well-known productions as "Star Wars", the first three "Alien" films, "Alien Nation", and "The Chronicles of Riddick". Other works include scripts for talking records, radio, computer games, and the story for the first "Star Trek" movie. His novel "Shadowkeep" was the first ever book adapation of an original computer game. In addition to publication in English his work has been translated into more than fifty languages and has won awards in Spain and Russia. His novel "Cyber Way" won the Southwest Book Award for Fiction in 1990, the first work of science-fiction ever to do so.
