Abstract:The main aim of this survey was to give students of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness (ASSC) a chance to voice issues that may be affecting them and to suggest possible remedies. As our annual meeting is our main activity many of the questions focussed specifically on this yearâ€™s meeting in Las Vegas. However, many of the issues raised (e.g., need for affordable housing) are general ones that affect students on a yearly basis, and can be better addressed given a longer lead-time (e.g., Taipei in 2008). All members for the ASSC currently classified as students were invited to take part in the survey. Of those invited (148) to fill out the survey 66 (45%) did so. Of these respondents 28 (42%) hope to attend this yearâ€™s meeting in ASSC-11. The survey is divided into two parts: the first with more general questions and was answered by all respondents; the second section deals specifically with issues arising from this yearâ€™s meeting answered only by those likely to attend this yearâ€™s meeting.
