Dear colleagues and friends,
This coming October we will be organizing, here in Paris 8, a meeting between dance makers/pedagogues and cognitive neuroscientists focusing on the study of consciousness and body/movement awareness. Below you will find a statement of intent as well as the program. Given the hands-on aspect of the meeting, the number of participants is limited to about 30. We would like to form a balanced group of scientists (cognitive scientists, neuroscientist, philosophers, psychologists…) and body-practitioners (dancers, somatic practitioners, dance pedagogues…). If you are interested to participate in this event we encourage you to send us an email with a short biographical note and a statement of interest (in what way(s) you find this meeting relevant to your personal research). We would also like to know if you will be willing to share some of your own work in a form of a poster/ a video presentation or another format during the sunday afternoon session. If you will be interested to share, please add a short description of the proposed contribution.
Please send us this information before the 25/7/2012 (to firstname.lastname@example.org).
Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. Please forward this invitation to anyone (or any mailing list) you think would be relevant.
