The scientific study of consciousness has long been recognized as defying the borders of scientific disciplines. Joint efforts of philosophers, neuroscientists, psychologists, physicists and computer scientists have advanced the field considerably in the past decades and resulted in a plethora of available data and a sizable number of theories.
However, what seems to be missing at present is a comprehensive mathematical approach to the topic, akin to the role theoretical physics or computational biology play in their respective disciplines. The goal of this online seminar is to help close this gap by bringing together the growing number of researchers around the globe who are interested in such an approach and by exploring the role of mathematics in the scientific study of consciousness.
