This conference was arranged by Ned Block and David Chalmers. It involved a large number of prominent scientists as well as philosophers speaking on a variety of topics pertaining to animal consciousness. The audience was of a size that necessitated the use of an overflow room with around 1000 seats as well as the main auditorium. I spoke on whether there is an on/off switch for consciousness in animal brains. My talk can be seen at the following URL: https://livestream.com/nyu-tv/AnimalConsciousness. It is on day 2, part 1.
