About the Psychonomic Society Annual Meeting

The Psychonomic Society is the preeminent society for the experimental study of cognition. Members are cognitive psychologists and include some of the most distinguished researchers in the field. They study the basic, fundamental properties of how the mind works by using behavioral techniques to better understand mental functioning.

At the Psychonomic Society Annual Meeting, cognitive psychologists debate, deliberate, and discuss the most innovative, cutting-edge research on questions concerning memory, learning, problem solving, decision making, language, attention, and perception. The scientific presentations are often concerned with the application of psychology to health, technology, and education as well as their connections to research in biology, chemistry, statistics, computer science, medicine, law, and business.

All attendees must register, including members who attend for free. Registration includes unlimited access to all symposia, talks, poster sessions, receptions, and exhibits. Registering online before the meeting lets you avoid lines onsite so you can get to all the great science faster.

Statement on Anti-harassment
The Psychonomic Society is an inclusive and welcoming organization, and our meeting reflects those values. Conference attendees and visitors should enjoy freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and freedom from harassment of all kinds. Recent events in the media remind us that academic settings are where we must be especially vigilant. As a scientific society, we do not want to police behavior, nor do we wish to dampen the professional and personal interactions that are so important to our meeting.  But we do encourage members to take into account others’ perspectives and consider how a question, comment, or invitation might be received when there is a power differential between parties.  No attendee should feel vulnerable to harassment at our meetings, or feel that they are enduring a climate of fear or hostility.  Let’s all work together to ensure our values of inclusion, respect, and professionalism are ones enjoyed by all of our members and attendees.


Special Assistance

If you require special assistance at the meeting, please complete the appropriate section of the online registration form or e-mail Request must be received by October 15, 2018.
