The 11th annual meeting of the Association for the Scientific Study of

study of consciousness. The overall goal of the conference is to promote the
scientific study of consciousness in all of its forms.

This is the FIRST call for paper and poster proposals. As in previous years
a significant portion of the program will be set aside for concurrent
sessions of submitted talks and poster sessions. ASSC11 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 APRIL 1, 2007
----------------------------------------------
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. 

Submit by filling out the appropriate form at:

http://assc2007.neuralcorrelate.com 

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 (ASSC11 is an
interdisciplinary 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.
