The Science of Consciousness Conference

Sunday, April 12, 2020 - 9:00am to Saturday, April 18, 2020 - 11:30pm

"The Science of Consciousness" is the world's largest and longest-running interdisciplinary conference on all aspects of the nature of conscious awareness, feelings and existence. These include how the brain produces consciousness, how consciousness can causally affect brain processes, the best empirical theories, free will, evolution of life and consciousness, the origins of moral and aesthetic values, how to improve mental, physical and cognitive function, and whether consciousness can persist after bodily death through uploading to machines, or via mental processes tied to the structure of reality. These and other relevant questions are approached through many disciplines in science, philosophy, business, the arts and contemplative practices.

The 2020 conference will consist of plenary talk sessions, concurrent talk sessions, posters, technology and art exhibits, social events, entertainment, pre-conference workshops and satellite excursions.

Abstract submissions are invited for consideration for plenary and concurrent talks, posters and exhibits.
