The International Conference on the Dialogue between Science and Theology, held online May 19 – 26, 2017, is currently accepting papers on the topic “Self, Soul, and Consciousness.” This conference accepts original, previously unpublished works. All submitted papers are due April 25, 2017 and will be reviewed by an international scientific committee.
The International Conference on the Dialogue between Science and Theology provides a forum for physicians, healthcare providers, neurologists, robotic engineers, sociologists, psychologists, practitioners and researchers of any domain tangential to the subject “Self, Soul, and Consciousness” to gain a deeper and more practical understanding of how religion relates to the practice of medicine, with particular attention to Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, and Islamic traditions. Participants will have opportunities to learn from leading scholars in the field of religion, psychology, and neuroscience, as well as to consider how what they learn applies to their own practices of medicine and sociology. As a result of participating in this conference, attendees will be better able to make sense of the moral, ethical, and spiritual dimensions of their practices of medicine, be better able to integrate their own spirituality into their care of patients, and be more knowledgeable about how their own work can be considered a true vocation, rather than merely a job.
Further details on the application process and guidelines are available at the DIALOGO Conference website.
