ENS, Salle Jaurès, 29 rue d’Ulm, 75005 Paris
IEA de Paris, 17 quai d 'Anjou, 75004 Paris

Summer school organized by Elisabeth Pacherie (PSL Université), Patrick Haggard (UCL, former Paris IAS Fellow), Steve Fleming (UCL), and Stanislas Dehaene (Collège de France, PSL), with the support of the Paris IAS.

Event closed to the public


The Summer School on Consciousness and Metacognition 2022 will be the second in a series of 3 interdisciplinary summer schools hosted by UCL in London (UK) and PSL in Paris (France). The goal of this summer school is to serve both as an intensive workshop, knowledge exchange and networking opportunity.

 Notably, research on consciousness and metacognition (“thinking about thinking”) spans the neurosciences, psychology, philosophy and artificial intelligence, and is naturally interdisciplinary. There is a rich and growing research tradition on these topics in both London and Paris, and within UCL and PSL specifically. Consciousness science is a rapidly expanding area, with the journal Science listing the problems of consciousness as being one of the key challenges for the 21st century. However, despite much excitement in this research area, the tools and interdisciplinary background needed to carry out robust, impactful research in consciousness science are rarely acquired in standard graduate or postdoctoral education, even in cognitive science.

The school will allow faculty at both sites to share their latest research, and students to interact both with each other and the speakers, providing feedback and generating new research ideas and collaborations. It will further create natural opportunities for students to arrange research visits between London and Paris, and it will enable longer-term student mobility and postdoctoral recruitment.
