In the last three decades, the study of consciousness has moved from the realm of philosophy into the spotlight of interdisciplinary scientific research. Cognitive and brain sciences have come together in an attempt to meet the challenges posed by the scientific study of consciousness and unconscious processes. This modern endeavor has yielded important insights about neural mechanisms and their relation to human cognition and behavior, findings that give rise to new answers to age-old questions. 

This conference will bring together some of the most notable researchers from various schools of thought, and enable them to share their findings, theories and ideas regarding the nature of consciousness and unconscious processes and their functions.
