Consciousness and Volition: 1st International Krakow Conference in Cognitive Science

27-29 September 2012

Institute of Philosophy, Jagiellonian University in cooperation with the Institute of Psychology, Jagiellonian University and AGH University of Science and Technology.
The 1st International Krakow Conference in Cognitive Science: Consciousness and Volition will focus on the current state of consciousness research, with particular reference to connections with issues pertaining to volitional acts. Principal topics will include: mental acts of volition, perception, memory, qualia, emotions, as well as the neurophysiological and physical foundations of all of these. We will also set out to analyse the possibility of artificial modeling of such mental acts, and correlations between them and experimentally discoverable events. However, the conference program is expected to include a wide-range of related topics and innovative approaches, even where these involve research with explicitly interdisciplinary orientation.
