The CEC plans to renew live, in-person, talks this 2021-2022 academic year, after suspending them in Spring 2020 due to covid-19 restrictions. 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 will be co-sponsoring the Models of Consciousness 2022 conference, to be held at Stanford in Summer 2022.
