Call for Proposals
2019 Collaborative Symposium
Held in conjunction with the 21st ESCoP Conference in Tenerife, Spain.

Deadline Passed: December 15, 2018
Committee decision by February 5, 2019

This program, created in 2015, is an initiative of the Psychonomic Society's international outreach as set forth in Society's strategic plan. The program aims to strengthen the communication and collaboration between the Society and other international societies representing the field of experimental and cognitive psychology through an annual, jointly organized, cutting-edge topical symposium held at the other international society’s regular annual meeting. One international society will be chosen each year for this program.

Mechanism of Support

Each year a Call for Collaborative Symposium will be opened in agreement with a non-PS international conference. The organizer of the symposium must be a current member of Psychonomic Society. The organizer will receive up to $5,000 for expenses relating to the Psychonomic Society symposium at the conference. The organizer decides what expenses will be covered, but generally the support is used for airfare and/or hotels.

Application Process
The European Society of Cognitive Psychology’s 21st Conference is the selected meeting for 2019 Psychonomic Society Collaborative Symposium.

Deadline: December 15, 2018

A Collaborative Symposium consists of five 20-minute spoken presentations and, possibly, a discussion on a broad, highly relevant topic (to be mutually agreed upon with the conference organizers). There is no need to contact ESCoP.

The proposal must include:

  • Symposium title
  • Brief 250-word abstract – written by the organizer – describing the purpose and theme of the symposium
  • List of speakers
    • Title and 250-word abstract for each speaker
  • The organizer must be a current member of the Psychonomic Society, although the speakers can be non-members.
  • Consider Diversity: The Psychonomic Society is committed to scientific merit, which entails the inclusion of scientists of all genders, races, sexual orientations, countries of origin, geographical locations, and disciplinary expertise. Please critically examine your deliberations to eliminate biases that detract from our commitment to merit.

Selection Criteria

  • Scientific quality, future impact, and recent scientific breakthroughs and/or highlights.
  • The fit between the global structure and content of the scientific program of the selected conference and the proposed symposium.
  • Preference will be considered for proposals which include speakers from different countries.


Potential proposers are encouraged to contact Lou Shomette, Executive Director of the Psychonomic Society.
