2020 Annual Meeting
A Virtual Psychonomics Experience
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.
move to a fully virtual conference will make our society more
international and inclusive by opening up our activities to those who
are unable or unwilling to participate in-person due to concerns about
the environment, travel bans, disabilities, family needs, health risks,
or lack of funds. We remain committed to making the conference as
accessible as possible, so the annual meeting will remain a free
conference for all Society members.
JW Marriott Austin has graciously agreed that the Society's contract
with the hotel can be canceled without penalty due to the impact of the
global COVID-19 pandemic. This frees up the Society to invest its
financial and staff resources into creating and executing a fully
virtual Psychonomics experience, bringing the science you love directly
to you, in the comfort of your home or office.
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.
