International Convention of Psychological Science - Amsterdam
The inaugural International Convention of Psychological Science (ICPS)
to be held in the heart of Amsterdam on 12-14 March 2015
Three features make ICPS unique:
Integrative Science Symposia: Solutions to our most pressing scientific questions come from cross-cutting efforts in which investigators deploy diverse research methods and attack problems at multiple levels of analysis. ICPS will showcase these efforts in thematic Integrative Science Symposia featuring leading investigators from not only psychology, but also neuroscience, genetics, anthropology, linguistics, and related fields.
Skill-Building Workshops: At a scientific convention, you not only can learn about others' novel research findings, but you also can learn how to execute the cutting-edge research methods that produced them. At ICPS, Cutting-Edge Methodological Workshops will provide scientific skill-building opportunities for all conference attendees.
International Scope: ICPS is the world's first international conference dedicated to scientific advances in all areas of psychology and related disciplines. Share ideas with colleagues from around the globe at this first-ever international gathering of the global psychological science community.
A forthcoming Call-for-Presentations will announce the many opportunities for you to take part in ICPS symposium sessions and scientific poster presentations. For now, mark your 2015 calendar with this historic event for psychological science.
As part of its wider scientific and knowledge-transfer activities, the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (www.bcbl.eu) is delighted to announce a workshop dedicated to the mechanisms of learning and memory consolidation.
Our aim is to provide a multidisciplinary platform to discuss the processes of memory formation, with a strong emphasis on the offline neural changes leading to memory stabilization and enhancement. Our hope is to bring together researchers working on these issues at various levels of analysis, i.e., cellular, systemic and behavioural, and with data coming from humans as well as other species.
The International Workshop on Learning and Memory Consolidation is to take place from Thursday the 10th to the Saturday 12th of July 2014, at the Palacio Miramar in Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain.
Invited speakers include:

Warsaw, Poland, September 7-10, 2014
The 2014 Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems cordially invites you to consider contributing an Event (conference, symposium, workshop, consortium meeting, special session). The FedCSIS multi-conference consists of a significant number of recurring Events, but proposals for new associated Events are welcome until October 18, 2013. The Events can run over any span of time within the conference dates; from half-day to three days.
Warszawa (Warsaw), the capital of Poland, is proud to be the host city of FedCSIS 2014.
The FedCSIS Events provide a platform for bringing together researchers, practitioners, and academia to present and discuss ideas, challenges, and potential solutions on established or emerging topics related to research and practice in computer science and information systems.
The Events will be selected based on the scientific/technical interest and/or their relevance to practitioners in their topics, the clarity of the proposal in addressing the requested information, the innovativeness of the Event topics, and the capacity in the FedCSIS multi-conference program.
The 2013, FedCSIS - held in Kraków, Poland - attracted 420 papers, of which 172 articles were accepted as full papers (acceptance rate of approximately 41%). Some events accepted additionally short and position papers. FedcSIS conference full and short papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, while position papers in a separate volumeof the Annals of Computer Science and Information systems series (publication process will be completed by October 31, 2013).
As in previous years, FedCSIS pre-Proceedings will be published on a USB memory stick given to FedCSIS participants. Next, (only) papers presented during the conference will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library proceedings (or as position papers, published in a separate volume), and posted at the conference WWW site. The IEEE proceedings will be published under an ISBN and ISSN numbers (and, when applicable, an IEEE Catalog number), under a nonexclusive copyright. Such copyright implies that Events' organizers can and, indeed, are strongly encouraged to invite extended and revised papers for post-conference publications in high-quality journals, edited volumes, etc.
Event proposals should include the following information (2 pages maximum):
Event organizers should email their proposals (in a single pdf file) by October 18, 2013, to the FedCSIS Secretariat at: email@example.com

We are excited to announce a Call for Papers for a special issue of the Journal of Behavioral Decision Making focusing on eye-tracking research. The official CFP is provided below. Those interested in submitting papers are encouraged to contact one of the guest editors with any questions: Nathan Ashby, Joe Johnson, Ian Krajbich, or Michel Wedel.
Guest Editors: Nathaniel Ashby (University of Essex; email@example.com), Joseph Johnson (Miami University; jgjohnson@MiamiOH.edu), Ian Krajbich (Ohio State University; Krajbich@gmail.com), & Michel Wedel (University of Maryland; firstname.lastname@example.org)
Resident Editor: J. Frank Yates (University of Michigan; email@example.com)
Theme of the Special Issue
At the heart of human judgment and decision making research lies the ultimate goal of understanding the underlying processes that shape and drive human behavior. One methodology that has the potential to provide such insights, which is currently seeing a dramatic rise in application in the field of judgment and decision making research, is eye tracking. While eye tracking methodologies have been employed in decision research for nearly 30 years, only recently have they become more mainstream. This increase in the use of eye tracking methodologies has provided exciting new insights into the processes underlying human behaviors and judgments. However, in spite of this proliferation, in many regards the full potential of eye movement recording remains to be realized, with potentially fruitful avenues of research yet to be explored and more advanced analysis techniques remaining underutilized.
This special issue aims to publish studies that either address current shortcomings in the use of eye tracking methodologies, present advanced analytic techniques, use eye tracking methodologies to facilitate novel investigations of research areas which have thus far been neglected, or use eye tracking methodologies to directly and empirically test and advance current theory.
We invite submissions that fall broadly into one of the following topic areas, but submissions addressing other topics will also be considered:
Call for Papers
Anyone with an interest in the issues raised above is invited to submit a full paper to the JBDM Manuscript Central site (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/bdm), indicating in the covering letter that the manuscript should be considered for the special issue on eye tracking. Submitted papers should contain original and unpublished work, and should not exceed 10,000 words (excluding references) with a maximum of 5 Figures/Tables. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in accordance with the Wiley & Sons guidelines. All submitted papers will be refereed according to their originality, methodological soundness, clarity of the presented results and conclusions, and the relevance of the submission for the special issue.
*We appreciate that studies involving the use of eye tracking can be more time consuming than studies involving only behavioral responses. As such, the submission deadline may be extended under special circumstances. However, late submissions will only be accepted if the author(s) of the submission contact one of the Guest Editors well in advance and provide a compelling explanation for why they are unlikely to make this deadline.
