The fourth annual conference of the Society of Catholic Scientists was held on June 4-6, 021 at the Washington DC Hilton Hotel, in Washington, DC.
It included questions such as What does science say about the prospects of extraterrestrial intelligence existing? How can it be searched for? What would be the implications for Catholic theology? Is artificial intelligence possible? Would it truly have "intellect"? What would be its theological implications? There were also talks not on the main theme of the conference.
