We are happy to announce that the CEC is renewing live, in-person talks this 2023 Spring Term, after suspending them in Winter 2020 due to covid-19. Our workshops continue to be sponsored by John and Claire Radway.   

Details for upcoming talks and conferences will be posted on our Events page. 

The CEC recently co-sponsored the Models of Consciousness 2022 conference, held at Stanford in September 2022.
