The Science of Consciousness (‘TSC’) is an interdisciplinary conference emphasizing rigorous approaches to the study of consciousness and its place in the universe. Topical areas include neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, cognitive science, biology, quantum physics and quantum brain biology, cosmology, meditation, altered states, artificial intelligence/machine consciousness, the nature of reality, culture and experiential phenomenology. Held annually since 1994, the TSC conference is hosted by the Center for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona, and alternates yearly between Tucson, Arizona and various locations in Italy, Denmark, Japan, Sweden, Czech Republic, Hungary, Hong Kong, India, Finland, San Diego and Switzerland.
The 27th annual TSC will be held April 18-23, 2022. Because of pandemic uncertainty, TSC 2022 is being planned as a hybrid event, with both 1) remote online live streaming, and 2) live in-person participation.
Live participation and broadcast will take place at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, a beautiful eco-lodge in the hills above Tucson, Arizona.
Tucson TSC conferences consist of keynote, plenary and concurrent talks, posters, exhibits, workshops and social events. For April 2022, the mix of live and remote presentations and audience will depend on the pandemic conditions. We hope for a robust in-person audience and will update and finalize conditions and participation mode in early 2022.
IONS Scientists Dr. Helané Wahbeh and Dr. Dean Radin, and IONS Fellow Dr. Julia Mossbridge will be presenters at the conference.
