The ERC-funded project Rethinking Conscious Agency (PI: Joshua Shepherd) will host a two-day workshop, May 9-10, 2019, in Barcelona. The topics are Metacognition, Consciousness, and Agency. The aim of the workshop is to generate a fruitful discussion amongst interested scientists and philosophers concerning the nature of any of these three things, and the relationships between them. This is deliberately broad: we hope for a wide-ranging discussion.
