2020 Annual Meeting now fully virtual!
2020 Annual Meeting
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. In the meantime, you can still
submit a poster abstract. Abstracts are due July 31, 2020.
Join your colleagues at the Psychonomic Society's 61st Annual Meeting, happening online November 19-21, 2020. Attendees are cognitive psychologists from more than 40 countries, including some of the field’s most distinguished researchers, innovative early career investigators, and graduate students already making important scientific contributions.
What is the Psychonomic Society?
The Psychonomic Society is the preeminent society for the experimental study of cognition. Members are scientists who study how the mind works and advance the basic science of behavior in areas that include
memory, learning, problem solving, decision making, language, attention, and perception. Many members are concerned with the application of psychology to health, technology, and education, and often
use converging methods such as neuroscience and computational science to achieve their research goals. Their work also connects with 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 helps prevent delayed access to the sessions during the days of the conference.
(Emeriti, Fellows, Member, and Student Members)
Please consider joining the society. Membership is inexpensive (it's less than the registration fee!).

Statement on Harassment
The Psychonomic Society is an inclusive and welcoming organization, and our meeting should reflect 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 that our values of inclusion, respect, and professionalism are philosophies that are enjoyed by all of our members and attendees.
The Psychonomic Society wishes to ensure that no individual is excluded because of the absence of auxiliary aids or services identified in the Americans with Disabilities
Act. If you require special assistance during the meeting, please complete the appropriate section of the online registration form or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
