We invite submissions engaging with one or more of the following topics:

-       What kind of experimental work can we do to evaluate the role of sensorimotor contingencies (SMCs) in consciousness?

-       How do we formalize the concept of SMCs?

-       How do we account for the difference between conscious and unconscious exercise of sensorimotor mastery?

-       How (if at all) can a sensorimotor approach ‘scale up’ to things like social cognition and abstract thought?

-       What role do neural processes play? And how does sensorimotor theory relate to the predictive coding approach?

We also welcome contributions on other relevant topics and subtopics, which may address empirical work and/or conceptual issues.
