APCAM 2018 Call for Abstracts
The 17th Annual Auditory Perception, Cognition and Action Meeting (APCAM 2018) will be held on Thursday, November 15th at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans in New Orleans, Louisiana. APCAM is a one-day satellite meeting affiliated with the annual meeting of the Psychonomic Society. The goal of APCAM is to bring together researchers from various theoretical perspectives to present focused research on auditory cognition, perception, and aurally guided action.
APCAM's Organizing Committee welcomes empirical (behavioral and neuroscientific), theoretical, and/or methodological abstract submissions on a variety of auditory topics, including but not limited to the following areas:
Submitting an Abstract
Additionally, the Organizing Committee welcomes proposals representing either a cluster of 3-4 related abstracts or a (45 to 60 minute) panel discussion on a unified topic. Related abstracts should be submitted separately, along with a separate abstract (also 300 words or less) from the proposal's coordinating author. Proposals for panel discussions only require this latter type of abstract. The abstract from the coordinating author should indicate the motivation for, and the nature of, the proposed session, including a brief overview of the fundamental issues that it hopes to address. A list of contributing authors for the session also should be provided, along with a brief statement about what each author will discuss. Preference will be given to proposed sessions that cut across research domains and that have important theoretical implications and/or practical applications.
The deadline for submission of abstracts and program proposals is September 17, 2018. APCAM's submission deadline has always been close to the conference date, which is made possible by the fact that authors are notified about the status of their submission rapidly (usually within 2-3 weeks). Travel and reservation information are linked on the APCAM website or can be accessed from the Psychonomic Society Annual Meeting website.
Oral and Poster Presentations
To support the mission of APCARF, AP&C and APCAM, there will be a $30 fee for APCAM conference attendance this year. This fee will serve as your annual dues to APCARF; the membership will cover APCAM program materials, provide you with an individual subscription to AP&C for the following year, permit you to access reduced open-access publication fees for AP&C, and allow you to take part in member discussions about all three entities at the conference. Additionally, accepted abstracts will receive automatic consideration to be invited to submit a manuscript for the following year's annual issue of AP&C highlighting work from APCAM. For more details about APCARF, see the Foundation Membership page.
If you plan to attend the conference without submitting an abstract, please become a member on the website and then send an email including your name, department, and affiliation with the subject "APCAM 2018 registration" to APCAM Co-chair Laura Getz.
