Models of Consciousness

The scientific study of consciousness is a young and thriving field, encompassing empirical and theoretical research of multiple disciplines. This conference aims to bring together researchers whose scientific activity relates to the theoretical and mathematical foundations of this field and to thereby promote the study and creation of models of consciousness and formal approaches to the mind-matter relation.

The inaugural conference took place from 9-12 September 2019 in the beautiful Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford.
