The International Academy of Consciousness (IAC) today announced that it will host its first International Congress of Conscientiology in Alentejo, Portugal in May 2015 with the goal of contributing to the establishment of a more adequate approach to the scientific study of the consciousness.
At this year's three-day congress, 21 speakers will converge on the Research Campus, including world-renowned physicists, neurologists, doctors, psychologists, engineers, astrophysicists, philosophers and researchers from the USA, Switzerland, Norway, Ecuador, Spain, Brazil, Portugal, Italy and India. These speakers will discuss human consciousness according to various disciplines and perspectives. A live question and answer session will also take place.
"Maverick scientists have been venturing where only religion and philosophy dared, applying the principles of science, with new methodologies, to the internal, subjective world of consciousness. Consciousness is widely considered one of the greatest and most persistent mysteries of science. Why are we aware? Where does that awareness come from? Is it created by biology or is it more than that, surviving biological death?" said Analaura Trivellato, Director of Research and Scientific Communication.
The event is open to anyone interested in the multidimensional paradigm.

The International Academy of Consciousness (IAC) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the scientific study of the consciousness. The IAC is committed to investigating consciousness, its capacity to manifest outside the physical body and a comprehensive associated range of parapsychic phenomena. Special emphasis is placed on out-of-body experiences and bioenergy because these are considered key research tools to explore and examine the non-physical aspects of reality.
