Welcome to

The Science of Consciousness 2019

The Science of Consciousness (TSC) 2019 is the 26th annual international interdisciplinary conference on fundamental questions and cutting-edge issues connected with conscious experience. TSC is the largest and longest-running interdisciplinary conference emphasizing conceptual, empirical, cultural and even artistic approaches to the study of consciousness. Key areas include the philosophy of mind, cognitive science, neuroscience, anthropology, biology, physics, computer science and mathematics. Held annually since 1994, the TSC conferences alternate yearly between Tucson, Arizona, and various locations around the world.

TSC conferences continue to bring together various perspectives, orientations, and methodologies within the study of consciousness. These include not only academic subjects within the sciences and humanities, but also contemplative and experiential traditions, culture and the arts. TSC aims to integrate viewpoints and bridge gaps, appreciates constructive controversy, and pursues the spirit of genuine dialogue. The format of the conference includes plenary sessions, pre-conference workshops, concurrent sessions, poster sessions, arts and book exhibits, and social events.
