The 20th annual meeting of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness (ASSC) will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina from June 15-18th, 2016.

This exciting 5-day meeting brings together leading researchers in neuroscience, psychology, cognitive science, philosophy, psychiatry, neurology, and computer science in a forum dedicated to showcasing and advancing rigorous scientific approaches to understanding the nature, function, and underlying mechanisms of conscious experience.

The program committee now invites submissions for Talk and Poster presentations on any topic relevant to the scientific study of consciousness. 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). However, you should be aware that there are a limited number of talk slots and poster spaces available. Talks and posters will be selected, via blind review, on the basis of the highest overall quality and relevance to the aims of the ASSC.
