The subjectivity of conscious experience has been increasingly recognised as a crucial target for consciousness research. This interdisciplinary workshop will address a range of key questions about the subjective structure of consciousness: What does it mean to say that a mental state is subjective? Does conscious experience have a distinctive subjective structure? How do these structures arise from their neural substrates? What role does the body play in subjective representation? In what sense, if any, can artificial systems represent the world subjectively? What can we learn from cases in which the typical subjective structure of consciousness is disrupted?
