Consciousness Conference

The Consciousness Discussion Group at King's University College has organized a Consciousness Conference to showcase the study of consciousness: from artificial intelligence to altered states of consciousness; traditional approaches to virtual reality; and meditation to near-death experiences. The outstanding contributions from our nineteen speakers will provide an opportunity to reflect deeply on the nature of consciousness and the applications of "consciousness technologies" that are emerging from the cutting edge of Consciousness Studies.

There will be a single stream of plenary talks only. Each talk will be 20 minutes in length, with each speaker presenting for the entire duration of her time. We will hand out file cards for attendees to write out questions directed toward particular speakers, which will be collected during the day. At the end of the afternoon, a selection of the questions will be answered by the speakers to whom they are directed.
