The Camden Conference and the Auburn Public Library present the film Zero Days. Zero Days is a documentary focused on Stuxnet, a piece of self-replicating computer malware that the U.S. and Israel unleashed to destroy a key part of an Iranian nuclear facility, and which ultimately spread beyond its intended target.
The 2018 Camden Conference will explore shifts in global power and the implications for major players – especially the United States, China and European countries – in pursuing their national interests.
Conference speakers will address the impact of globalization, the rise of nationalism, the challenges to global economies, and the management of a range of future threats including environmental change.
