For the interested: the annual conference of the Association of the Scientific Study of Consciousness (ASSC) is the year’s highlight with respect to all things consciousness science*. This year’s edition is pretty near, in Paris. So should any passionate-about-consciousness people happen to be in Paris in early July, keep a look out (registration opens March 20).
* there is another popular one, TSC (Towards a Science of Consciousness) which is more… broad, in the sense that it’s not just scientific but also includes talks on interplanetary consciousness and rainbow vibrations. It also contains scientifically sound stuff though, and every even year is held in Tuscon AZ, a place where any lover of cacti has to have been once in their life.
