The thirteenth annual meeting of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness (ASSC) will be held from 5 till 8 June 2009 at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. An additional satellite meeting on “Coma and Consciousness” organized by Steven Laureys will take place on the day prior to the main conference, June 4th 2009.

The Academy is located in the vibrant heart of Berlin and is close to many great museums, art galleries and to the nightlife of Berlin. A number of hotels ranging from luxury to budget are located within walking distance to the main conference.

ASSC XIII is intended to promote interdisciplinary dialogue in the scientific study of consciousness. ASSC members as well as non-members are encouraged to submit contributions that address current empirical and theoretical issues in the study of consciousness, from the perspectives of philosophy, neuroscience, psychology, computer science, and cognitive ethology. ASSC XIII will provide an excellent opportunity for the presentation of new empirical findings or novel theoretical perspectives in an atmosphere that will promote discussion and debate.
