The 27th annual meeting of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness will be held at the University of Tokyo on July 2-5, 2024. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Tokyo, Japan.

Proposals for tutorials and symposia
We are now inviting proposals for symposia and pre-conference tutorials. The submission deadline is October 15, 2023.
Symposia Submission: Submit Here
The Program Committee welcomes symposia proposals on any topic pertinent to the scientific exploration of consciousness. Typically, each ASSC conference hosts four symposia, each lasting around two hours with four speakers. We encourage a diverse range of topics, especially those that might have been underrepresented in past conferences. ASSC prioritizes symposium proposals that center on specific questions over loosely related talks. Proposals that merge various methodologies around shared questions are especially valued. Intellectual and demographic inclusiveness are key criteria for selection. All symposium participants will receive complimentary conference registration.
Tutorials Submission: Submit Here
A core objective of ASSC meetings is to broaden researchers’ horizons in areas they might be unfamiliar with. We invite tutorial proposals on a spectrum of consciousness science topics, scheduled for the inaugural day of the conference. Presenters should not only share their own insights but also provide a comprehensive tutorial overview, fostering discussion, debate, and audience engagement. Each tutorial is designed to span roughly three hours, including a brief intermission. Tutorial leaders will be awarded an honorarium (one per tutorial, not per presenter). Tutorials may have 1-4 presenters, and if registrations fall below 10 participants, the tutorial may be preemptively cancelled.
