I am pleased to announce the call for papers for the third online consciousness conference. Invited speakers include,

Kathleen Akins, Simon Fraser University

Paul Churchland, University of California San Diego

Steven Harnad, University of Southampton & University of Montreal, Quebec

Jesse Prinz, The Graduate Center, CUNY

Papers in any area of consciousness studies are welcome, though the conference has as its theme this year ‘Neurophilosophy and the Philosophy of Neuroscience’. Selected papers from the conference relating to this theme, pending outside review, will be published in the annual special issue of Synthese “Neuroscience and its Philosophy”. Because of this contributions that are unpublished elsewhere and related to the theme are preferred, though exceptions can be made.

Papers should be roughly 3,000-4,000 words and subsequent presentations, should the presenter choose to make one, should be about 20 minutes (though longer papers/presentations are acceptable). Submissions, suitable for blind review, should be sent to consciousnessonline@gmail.com by January 5th 2011. Those interested in being referees or commentators should also contact me. Authors of accepted papers are urged to make, or have made, some kind of audio/visual presentation (e.g. narrated powerpoint or video of talk) though this is not required to present.
