Next year is going to be an exciting year if you have an interest in moral and legal responsibility, in the relationship between responsibility and mental capacity, in how the mind sciences and relevant technologies can shed light on these topics, and in neurolaw.
With three months left 2012, my schedule for 2013 is already filling up with numerous “must go to” events. This prompted the present scribblings which yielded a list of conferences and events that I’ll be participating in in one capacity or another. Where available I’ve included links to some information about the events.
If I’ve missed an event that I really should slot into my schedule then please give me a heads-up, k?
