The Auditory Perception & Cognition Society (APCS) is an international, non-profit organization that seeks to foster activities that will bring together researchers from around the world and from various theoretical perspectives to discuss research on auditory cognition, perception, and aurally guided action. Its primary missions are to: (1) support and grow the Auditory Perception, Cognition, and Action Meeting (APCAM) and (2) support the Auditory Perception & Cognition (AP&C) journal. The APCS bylaws provide additional information about the organization of the society.

The Auditory Perception, Cognition and Action Meeting (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. This year's APCAM will be held on November 16th, 2023 in San Francisco, CA. Last year, APCAM 2022 was held in Boston, MA, for which the program and abstracts are now available online.
Our APCS-affiliated journal, Auditory Perception & Cognition (AP&C), is now indexed in PsycInfo! Please note that, in accordance with APA’s policies, indexing begins with the immediately preceding issues of the journal at the time of filing for indexing consideration, and will automatically continue across all subsequent issues. Also, be aware that AP&C’s editors are hoping to quickly expand indexing of the journal to other common databases as well.
Submissions are welcome for a new international journal from Taylor & Francis entitled Auditory Perception & Cognition. This journal is affiliated with the annual Auditory Perception, Cognition, and Action Meeting (APCAM) that precedes meetings of the Psychonomic Society.
Auditory Perception & Cognition (AP&C) seeks to bring together outstanding examples of auditory science across disciplines within one publication. It is unique in its consideration of work with either a basic or applied research focus that can target any level of processing (i.e., low-level perceptual to high-level cognitive), theoretical perspective (e.g., constructivist v. ecological) and methodology (e.g., neurophysiological v. behavioral/psychophysical; quantitative v. observational). The journal fills an important gap between general perceptual and cognitive journals that infrequently feature auditory work and highly specialized auditory publications that do not attract wide readership outside the authors immediate domain.
Details about the journal, including instructions for authors, can be found on the journal website.
