Psychonomic Society Leading Edge Workshops advance knowledge and understanding by bringing together senior scientists and early career investigators to examine the most innovative cognitive science. The main applicant must be a Member, Fellow or Emeritus member of the Society. Funding available.
The general strategic goals for this initiative are to:
Advance scientific knowledge and understanding of major, broad and contemporary topics within the remit of the Psychonomic Society and its journals
Bring special symposia to PS members at a meeting of the Society and generate special sections/issues of PS journals based on the outcome of each workshop
Facilitate involvement of early career researchers in PS activities
Facilitate greater involvement in PS activities of PS members who are based outside of North America
Facilitate interaction between PS members and scientists with cognate interests who are not members of the Society
Facilitate scientific advancement of topics that might be of interest to policy makers and the general public as well as to PS scientists
The first two strategic goals above are essential for all workshops. Proposals need not fulfill all of the remaining goals, but a major criterion for evaluation will be the extent to which a proposal addresses the goals that it selects for inclusion.
