Virtual Psychonomics
2020 Annual Meeting

Poster abstracts are due July 31. For 2020 only, Fellows and Emeritus Fellows may sponsor up to two abstracts for Student Members and non-members. Submit a poster abstract.

The Psychonomic Society is pleased to announce that its annual meeting in November will now be fully virtual.  In the interest of the health and safety of our members, the in-person portion of the meeting has been canceled.

While we will all miss the in-person networking, we hope you will take advantage of the many opportunities to interact online through the conference portal, as you continue to build relationships within the Psychonomics network and strengthen collaborations to improve the science in our field. We also hope that the move to a fully virtual format will open doors for more participation than ever before, as the format eliminates conference travel and lodging costs and makes it easier for cognitive scientists all around the world to participate.

More information about the format of the 2020 Annual Meeting will be announced in the coming weeks.

  Current Members
All 2020 Members, Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Emeritus Members, and Student Members may submit one abstract for the Annual Meeting (student member abstracts must be sponsored). For 2020 only, Fellows and Emeritus Fellows can also sponsor up to two abstracts submitted by a Student Member or a non-member. Fellows and Emeritus Fellows should submit only the abstract for the paper they plan to present. The sponsored student(s) or non-member(s) should submit his/her own abstract, listing the Fellow or Emeritus Fellow as the sponsor. Member status of the submitter determines the priority for the abstract, so students should not list themselves as the submitter for a Fellow, Emeritus Fellow, Member, or Emeritus Member abstract.

In order for your abstract to be given the priority associated with your member status (Fellows receive the highest priority), your 2020 member dues must be paid before submitting your abstract. You can pay your member dues online.

For the system to identify you as a member, you must use the same e-mail address that is affiliated with your Psychonomic Society membership. If you are unsure which e-mail address is associated with your Psychonomic Society membership, please contact info@psychonomic.org.

  Student Members

The instructions are the same as for a member submission, except that your abstract must be sponsored by a Fellow (who has paid 2020 dues) or Emeritus Fellow.* When you use the online submission system, you must identify the name and e-mail of your sponsor and provide the sponsor’s Member ID number. You should contact your sponsor prior to submitting your abstract to obtain their Psychonomic Society Member ID number.

If your sponsor is not a co-author, you must upload a brief letter from him/her indicating that she/he is willing to sponsor your paper. The letter should indicate that the individual is willing to sponsor the paper. It should include the name of the student and the title of the talk. For example, "I will sponsor Mary Smith's paper titled The Role of Memory in Understanding Language." Letters are not needed if the sponsor is a co-author on the paper. The sponsored paper should be submitted by its author as a student.

For the system to identify you as a member, you must use the same e-mail address that is affiliated with your Psychonomic Society membership. If you are unsure which e-mail this is, please contact info@psychonomic.org.

*Note that only Fellows and Emeritus Fellows may sponsor abstracts. Each Fellow or Emeritus Fellow may sponsor only one abstract.  Student Members should check with their sponsor to ensure that s/he is a Fellow (who has paid 2020 dues) or Emeritus Fellow and that s/he is only sponsoring that abstract.

  Non-Member Submissions

Non-Members must have a sponsor for their abstract submission. Either a Fellow (who has paid 2020 dues) or Emeritus Fellow may sponsor an abstract.* When you use the online submission system, you will need to identify the name and e-mail of your sponsor and provide the sponsor’s Member ID number. You should contact your sponsor prior to submitting your abstract to obtain their Psychonomic Society Member ID number.

If your sponsor is not a co-author, you must upload a brief letter from him/her indicating that she/he is willing to sponsor your paper. The letter should indicate that the individual is willing to sponsor the paper. It should include the name of the non-member and the title of the talk. For example, "I will sponsor Mary Smith's paper titled The Role of Memory in Understanding Language." Letters are not needed if the sponsor is a co-author on the paper. The sponsored paper should be submitted by its author as a non-member.

Join the Psychonomic Society now

Non-members, including graduate students, will be charged a $75 registration fee to attend the Annual Meeting. (Undergraduate students will be exempt from this fee.) We encourage you to join the Society and receive a complimentary registration.

*Note that only Fellows and Emeritus Fellows may sponsor abstracts. Each Fellow or Emeritus Fellow may sponsor only one abstract.  Student Members should check with their sponsor to ensure that s/he is a Fellow (who has paid 2020 dues) or Emeritus Fellow and that s/he is only sponsoring that abstract.

  Priorities for Submitting Talks and Posters
Each Fellow, Emeritus Fellow, Member, and Emeritus Member may submit one abstract as an author or co-author. For spoken presentations, the Fellow, Emeritus Fellow, Member, or Emeritus Member must also be the person who will present the talk. Each Member and Emeritus Member may submit one abstract as author or co-author, but these abstracts will probably be scheduled as posters. If an abstract is scheduled as a poster, the submitter may turn over presenting responsibilities to a co-author.

In addition, for 2020 only, each Fellow or Emeritus Fellow may sponsor up to two submissions by a Student Member or someone not affiliated with the Society (a student or a non-member). The sponsor may or may not be a co-author on the paper.

Typically, the number of abstracts submitted to the meeting is greater than time and space allow. If all the abstracts cannot be accepted, the selection of abstracts will be determined by a fixed set of priorities.

In the case of spoken presentations, the person who submits the abstract must also be the person who will present the talk. Priority is given to abstracts submitted by Fellows of the Society.  If the number of Fellows submitting talks exceeds the capacity of the convention (i.e., a maximum of 330 talks), priorities are determined by the recent history of participation in previous conferences. Those who have given a paper in the preceding year have lower priority than those who have not. If all Fellows can be accommodated in spoken sessions, priority for remaining speaking opportunities is assigned first to Members, then to Student Members, and then to non-members.  In past years, only a few Members’ abstracts were placed on the program.  Space should be reserved for the winners of the Member Select-Speaker awards because part of that award allows Members to present their research as talks.

In the case of posters, priorities for acceptance depend upon the status of the submitting author. Unlike spoken presentations, the person submitting a poster abstract is not required to be the actual presenter of the abstract. The priorities for posters are the same as for spoken presentations:  Fellows, Members, Student Members, and non-members.

  Posters
Each poster presenter will have one side of a 4-foot X 8-foot poster board (includes a 1” frame). Please format your poster presentation using these dimensions. There are five poster sessions that do not overlap with spoken sessions: Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening; and Friday and Saturday noon. Instructions for creating your poster can be found here.


  Topic List and Keywords
To help us build the program, please select two topics from the predefined list that represent appropriate categories for your submission. The Topics will include a general domain (i.e., Memory) and a sub-topic within that domain (i.e., Memory: Working Memory). These choices are important because they are used to group your abstract with other similar abstracts. In addition, you are asked to indicate up to three keywords that more specifically characterize your submission.

  Requesting to Chair a Session
Fellows and Emeritus Fellows who plan to present papers are urged to volunteer to chair a session by checking the appropriate box on the submission form. Fellows who do not wish to make a presentation at the meeting but who would be willing to chair a session are urged to contact Reed Hunt (reed@olemiss.edu). Please specify the topic(s) for sessions you would be willing to chair.

  Conflicts of Interest
“Conflicts of interest” arise in science when financial incentives, personal/familial relationships, or other such considerations undermine a scientist’s objectivity. For example, if a scientist is a shareholder in a company that sells a treatment for a condition, that scientist would have a conflict of interest (COI) with regard to research on that and closely related conditions and treatments. Having a COI does not preclude presenting your research, but COIs must be declared so that the scientific content of the presentation can be reviewed considering the COI(s). If you have a COI, please indicate this when asked in the online submission program. See https://www.pnas.org/page/authors/competing-interest for further discussion.

  Instructions for Presentations

  1. All spoken papers are 15 minutes in length, followed by a formally scheduled 5-minute discussion period.
  2. Please proofread your name, title, and abstract for correctness and completeness. Capitalize the content words in your title. Don’t use abbreviations (such as U of M) in the affiliations. Write out the name of the institution (University of Minnesota). The information that you enter will appear in the program as you have entered it.
  3. The maximum length for abstracts is 150 words. Your abstract will be truncated at 1,250 characters (including spaces) in the abstract submission program. This count does not include the presentation title.
  4. The Governing Board of the Psychonomic Society encourages all presenters to follow the Psychonomic Society Statistical Guidelines. Effect sizes should be reported and error bars with appropriate labels should be included on all graphs.
  5. You will be asked to grant permission to have your presentation recorded and live streamed as part of Psychonomics Live!.
  6. To be considered complete, all information required must be supplied; incomplete forms WILL be rejected.
  7. For the spoken sessions, the Society provides a laptop computer (PC), a screen, LCD projector, and microphones in all rooms for PowerPoint presentations or other computer-generated displays. Note that projection equipment and electrical outlets will not be available in the poster session area.
  8. In mid-July, you will be notified by e-mail of the abstract's status for the meeting.
  9. The completed submission for a poster or paper must have been submitted by 11:59 PM anywhere in the world on July 15, 2020.
