ASSC 17 San Diego: July 12-15, 2013

Volunteer Opportunities: The 17th Annual Meeting of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness (ASSC17), San Diego, CA, July 12-15, 2013

The ASSC is the preeminent scientific association dedicated to promoting and disseminating the study of that most complex–and mysterious–of brain functions: consciousness. Every year, ASSC members from the ranks of neuroscience, psychology, medicine, and philosophy meet to present and discuss the latest findings in the young, but growing, field of consciousness research.

This year, the Scientific Program Committee will be judging abstracts for papers and posters after March 22nd (the submission deadline, which will likely be extended until April 1st). However, an exciting roster of keynote speakers, symposia, and tutorials is already planned (check out http://theassc.org/assc_17 for details).

The Co-Chairs of ASSC 17–David Edelman and Tobias Schlicht–are looking for a few enthusiastic students to work as volunteers during the meeting. So, if you’re fascinated by the problem of consciousness and would like the opportunity to mingle with an exciting mix of cognitive scientists, neuroscientists, clinicians, and philosophers, and hear about the cutting edge in consciousness research–all in exchange for about 4 hours of work per day–please contact David Edelman for details.
