Dear Computational Neuroscience Community,

We would like to announce a workshop on formal approaches to consciousness
studies:

https://modelling-consciousness.org/

This workshop brings together researchers who have a deep interest in
questions related to the scientific study of consciousness as well as
background in formal research topics in order to discuss mathematical
questions in the scientific study of consciousness and formal models of the
mind-matter relation.

The workshop takes place in a mountain cabin in the Austrian alps in
Dorfgastein from March 21st to 28th, 2020. Unlike usual workshops and
conferences, the focus is not placed upon presentation of recent results,
but on creating an atmosphere that stimulates discussion of open questions
and new ideas concerning models of consciousness.

The workshop is aimed at researchers of any age who are interested in the
problems discussed in contemporary consciousness studies. A background in
mathematics, physics or other formal disciplines of sciences is appreciated.

The deadline for applications is January 31st, 2020. Application details
can be found on our website given above.


Best wishes on behalf of the workshop organizing committee,


Xerxes D. Arsiwalla (IBEC & Universitat Pompeu Fabra)

Ian Durham (Saint Anselm College)

Johannes Kleiner

Giovanni Rabuffo (University of Aix-Marseille)

Joanna Szczotka (University of Sussex & Jagiellonian University)

Sean Tull (Cambridge Quantum Computing)
