AISB opportunities Bulletin Item


The AISB is now hosting a series of workshops to be held across the
country, covering a wide range of themes pertinent to the aims of the
AISB. If you are interested in hosting one of these events, you will
find information on what you will need to do on this page:

These events are abstract-only and free for all AISB members. Current
non-members would be able to attend for the cost of AISB membership,which 
they will be asked to arrange and pay for in advance by
submitting a completed application form to the Executive Office. They
would then be eligible to a year's membership of the Society. This
applies to speakers and audience alike. Refreshments (coffee and
teas) are funded by the AISB. The first two workshops were both held
at Goldsmiths, with a third workshop planned for April at St Mary's
University College on the topic of consciousness (more information in
the next issue of Q). For more information, please visit our
webpage, or you can contact Yasemin ( or 
Kent ( with any questions.
