Welcome. This year marks the 50th anniversary from the launch of Star Trek: The Original Series. To commemorate such an event, the committee of SciFi Malta is planning a symposium dedicated solely to Star Trek. This is the second Star Trek event – the first Star Trek Symposium was held in 2014 and the organizers can proudly say it was a huge success. The Star Trek Symposium will differ from the traditional Fan Based Conventions in that it is a platform for academics from across many disciplines to meet and explore the intersection of humanities and sciences. The scholarly papers which will be presented in this symposium will aim to investigate the inter-disciplinarian facets in Star Trek.The event will be held under the auspices of The Institute of Technology, Humanities, the Arts, Medicine and Science (ITHAMS). The event will be sponsored by the Faculty of Information and Communication Technology at the University of Malta. The HUMS programme within the same University, set up in 2012 to explore and encourage the interfaces between the humanities, medicine and the sciences also supports this event.The Star Trek Symposium is an event that will appeal to scientists and fans of Star Trek alike.
