This 2017-2018 academic year, we will present a new series of workshops sponsored by John and Claire Radway.  We will be hosting workshops on free will, attention, contextuality, and neuroscience and consciousness. Guest speakers will include Bill Newsome, Carlos Montemayor, and Acacio de Barros. 

This Spring, we will be sponsoring a conference on Quanta and Mind, and next Fall we will be hosting a conference on the Nature of Time.  Details for these conferences can be found on our Events page.
