"Mind, Brain, and Experience: At the Intersections of Philosophy, Science, and Medicine" is a two-day, interdisciplinary conference intended to bring together scholars, researchers, medical practitioners, and professionals from various disciplines for the purpose of exploring the relation between mind and brain, the manifestation of this relation in experience, and the implications of respective views of this relation for medical practice, social policy, and the future of our culture more generally.  We encourage submissions from all related fields including but not limited to philosophy, psychology, psychiatry, neurochemistry, neurobiology, neurology, general medical practice, cognitive science, computer science, and artificial intelligence.


Keynote addresses will be given by Richard Grandy, Ph.D., Carolyn and Fred McManis Professor of Philosophy at Rice University and Mark Johnson, Ph.D., Knight Professor of the Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Oregon.

Papers and presentations should be accessible by a broad scholarly audience.  Abstracts should be prepared for blind review.
