Welcome to ’Toward a Science of Consciousness 2015’ the 21st annual international, interdisciplinary conference on the fundamental questions connected with conscious experience.

Toward a Science of Consciousness (TSC) is the largest and longest-running interdisciplinary conference emphasizing broad and rigorous approaches to the study of conscious awareness. Topical areas include neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, biology, quantum physics, meditation and altered states, machine consciousness, culture and experiential phenomenology. Cutting edge, controversial issues are emphasized. Held annually since 1994, the TSC conferences alternate yearly between Tucson, Arizona and various locations around the world. The University of Helsinki is proud to host TSC 2015 in the Great Hall of its neoclassical main building located in the downtown area.

Kim Davies

Visiting Research Fellow, University of Durham
After a PhD at Durham and another life, I'm back with philosophy applying some of the insights of continental European philosophers (eg Hegel, Heidegger, Apel, Habermas) to problems framed in the 'analytic' tradition. This provides the most interesting, fruitful and thought provoking approach to the ' Hard Problem' and associated issues such as mental causation and free will.

Lieze Boshoff

PhD Candidate, University of Groningen
Current research involves attention, perception, and the quantum brain. The aim of my research is to investigate the role/effect of perception and consciousness in quantum macro-systems, the mind-matter connection and Psi phenomena. | | Research methodologies include but are not limited to: Behavioural experimental paradigms, EEG and QRNG.

Jacob Jolij

Assistant Professor, University of Groningen
I am a cognitive and social neuroscientist studying how beliefs influence consicous perception and cognition. Moreover, I am interested in the theoretical and experimental investigation of consciousness, including anomalous phenomena (including psi). I use EEG (evoked potentials, time-frequence analyses, single-trial decoding, and neurofeedback), TMS, and behavioral methods (performace, psychophysics, reaction times) as tools in my research...
