Sensorimotor Satellite

 

ASSC Satellite Workshop: ‘The Sensorimotor Theory of Perception and Consciousness: Developments and Open Questions’

Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th July 2015 – Paris, France

Keynote speakers – Anthony Chemero, Alva Noë
Invited speakers – Malika Auvray, Xabier Barandiaran, Andreas Engel, Erik Myin

The sensorimotor theory claims that we can make strides toward dissolving the mysteries of consciousness if we think of experience as a kind of bodily engagement with the environment rather than something that happens only in the brain. Specifically, it claims that perceptual consciousness depends on implicit mastery of sensorimotor contingencies, the pattern-like ways that sense inputs change in line with movement by the agent or object perceived.

Since its first official statement in a seminal paper by O’Regan and Noë (2001), the theory has been extended and developed in various ways, resulting in a rich set of empirical and philosophical ideas about conscious experience. This workshop will give an overview of the state of the art and discuss key issues that a future sensorimotor theory should tackle.

Registration:

Everybody is welcome. Participation is free but places are strictly limited. To register, please email Niclette Bukasa Kampata on lpp.erc.vision@gmail.com with your name and any affiliation.

Workshop programme:

The two-day workshop will feature a combination of philosophers and scientists working on the sensorimotor theory and closely related topics.

Keynote speakers:

  • Alva Noë (Berkeley) -‘Sensorimotor understanding and the limits of agency’
  • Anthony Chemero (Cincinnati) – ‘Feeling into the situation’



     Invited speakers:

  • Malika Auvray (Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics) – ‘Questioning the use of sensory substitution devices at the behavioral, phenomenal and neurophysiological levels’
  • Xabier Barandiaran (Basque Country) – ‘Strong and weak sensorimotor constitution of experience’
  • Andreas Engel (University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf) - Title TBA
  • Erik Myin (Antwerp) – ‘Reasons for radicalism’

 

Venue:

Centre Universitaire des Saints Pères,
45 Rue des Saints Pères,
75006 Paris,
France

The workshop is being organised by Kevin O’Regan, Lucia Foglia, David Silverman and Jan Degenaar as part of Kevin O’Regan’s ERC Advanced Project FEEL, based at the Psychology of Perception Laboratory, Paris Descartes University.

For questions, please contact Niclette Bukasa Kampata at lpp.erc.vision@gmail.com

ASSC 19 Abstract Submission

 

The 2015 book of abstracts is available : here

 

 

SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED


  • Oral Communications Schedule : Available here

  • Poster Presentations Schedule : Available here

If you have any questions about your abstract, please send an email to congresassc19@ens.fr

 

The program committee invites submissions for Talk and Poster presentations. The annual ASSC conferences are 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 neuroscience, psychology, medicine, philosophy, computer science, and cognitive ethology. ASSC19 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.

The maximum time allocated to each talk is 15 minutes. Speakers should aim to complete their talk in 12 minutes to allow 3 minutes for questions. Any person may present only one submission, but may be co-author on more than one. Submissions for both posters and talks will be accepted (please specify preference). All presenters must register for the conference (registration and payment can be made after acceptance notification has been received). 

We would, however, like you to be aware that there are a limited number of both talk sessions and poster space available. Talks and posters will be selected in preference of the presentations of greatest quality and relevance to the aims of the ASSC. Please note that we anticipate that we will be unable to accept all abstract submissions due to the limited time and space available. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this restriction may cause.

 

ABSTRACT JUDGING CRITERIA

In line with practices at some recent ASSC conferences, abstracts will be judged by the scientific committee "blind" to the list of contributing authors. The abstracts will be judged soley on the quality of the work presented in the abstract and its relevance to consciousness research. Submissions labeled as "POSTER ONLY" will be considered separately and will simply be judged on a decision to accept or reject. The remaining submissions labeled as either "TALK ONLY" or "TALK OR POSTER" will be judged together.

 

TRAVEL AWARD

ASSC19 will not be offering travel awards. This year it has been decided that all available money will be used to subsidise the cost of registration and social events in order to make them as cheap as possible for ALL accademic staff and students attending. This year fees will be substantially reduced compared to previous years and the cost of accommodation will also be low with the availability of affordable hotel rooms that is only a few minutes walk away from the main conference venue.

 

STUDENT POSTER COMPETITION

For each of the poster sessions, there will be three prizes awarded for each of the following category: psychology, neuroscience and philosophy. And one public prize (4 prizes in total). Posters will be categorized by the judges. The four winners will be presented an award on stage just before the final keynote of the conference. The winning posters will also be featured on the ASSC website. The competition is only open to students (post-docs are not eligible).

If you would like to be considered for the student poster competition, then select "YES"  where the form asks, "Would you like to be considered for the student poster prize?"

Note: Prizes will not be awarded for student talk presentations. So, if you select "talk or poster" for your presentation and you are awarded a talk, then you will not be considered for the poster prize.
