CALL FOR PAPER & POSTER PROPOSALS
ASSOCIATION FOR THE SCIENTIFIC STUDY OF CONSCIOUSNESS

10TH ANNUAL MEETING
St. Anne's College, Oxford
June 23 - June 26, 2006
-------------------------------

The tenth annual meeting of the Association for the Scientific Study  
of Consciousness will be held from June 23rd to June 26th, 2006 in  
Oxford. The meeting will be notable as the tenth anniversary of the  
first ASSC meeting. It will also take place in the pleasant  
surroundings of St. Anne's College, Oxford. Accommodation in college  
will be available and the meeting promises to be both intellectually  
stimulating and very enjoyable!

ASSC10 is intended to promote interdisciplinary dialogue in the  
scientific study of consciousness. The overall goal of the conference  
is to promote the scientific study of consciousness in all of its  
forms. Following last year's successful symposia, ASSC members are  
again invited to submit proposals for symposia relevant to the  
overall goal of the conference. Non-members can also submit proposals  
for tutorials. Symposia will address current empirical and  
theoretical issues in the study of consciousness, from the  
perspectives of philosophy, neuroscience, clinical medicine,  
psychology, and computer science.

This is the FIRST call for paper and poster proposals. ASSC10 is  
intended to promote interdisciplinary dialogue in the scientific  
study of consciousness, as in previous years a significant portion of  
the program will be set aside for concurrent sessions of submitted  
talks and poster sessions. ASSC10 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.

-------------------------------
CALL FOR PAPER AND POSTER SUBMISSIONS
SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY MARCH 1, 2006
-------------------------------

Speakers in concurrent sessions are invited to talk on any topic  
relevant to the scientific study of consciousness. Submissions that  
include anthropological, evolutionary, physiological, psychological,  
philosophical, or computational perspectives are all welcome.

Submissions for both posters and talks will be accepted (please  
specify preference). Any person may present only one submission, but  
may be co-author on more than one. Oral presentations will be limited  
to 20 minutes, to be followed by a ten-minute discussion period.

Submit by filling out the appropriate form at:

http://www.assc10.org.uk

You will be asked to include with your submission the following  
information:

1. Title.
2. Name, affiliation, with presenting co-author(s) designated.
3. An abstract of up to 350 words.
4. Complete contact information for the author with whom the  
scientific program committee will interact with about the submission
5. Whether your first preference is for an oral or poster presentation
6. Whether you are willing to have the abstract, if accepted,  
published in Psyche.

Please note: talks and posters are selected based on an aggregate  
vote of the scientific program committee (members vote on all  
abstracts barring those in which a conflict of interest arises).  
Proposals that pass a given threshold will be considered for an oral  
or poster presentation; those that pass a lower threshold will be  
considered for a poster presentation only (this in no way implies  
that posters are considered a "lower" medium for presentation, but  
rather reflects the restricted number of talk slots available).  
Qualities considered in assessing abstracts include originality,  
relevance to research on consciousness (good, but seemingly  
irrelevant work will receive lower scores), and clarity of ideas  
(ASSC10 is an interdisplinary conference, as such its expected that  
proposals should be intelligible for all members of committee  
regardless of research background). Membership status, category of  
talk, and presentation preference (oral/poster) are ignored when  
scoring proposals.

If you have any difficulties in submitting your proposal, or any  
other questions regarding the meeting, please contact assc10 at gmail.com .
