Papers in any area of consciousness studies are welcome and should be roughly 3,000-4,000 words, suitable for blind review, and sent to consciousnessonline@gmail.com by January 5th 2010. Those interested in being referees or commentators should also contact me. Authors of accepted papers are urged to make, or have made, some kind of audio/visual presentation (e.g. narrated powerpoint or video of talk) though this is not required to present.

The papers from last year, pending external review, are being published by The Journal of Consciousness Studies and if contributors are interested I would like to look into something like that for this year’s proceedings. Because of this contributions that are unpublished elsewhere are preferred, though exceptions can be made.
