Welcome! 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 Auditory Perception, Cognition, and Action Meeting (APCAM) is held annually in November, just prior to and at the same venue as 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 is a unique meeting in its exclusive focus on the perceptual, cognitive, and behavioral aspects of audition.
APCAM 2018 was held on November 15, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana, and the program and abstract book can be downloaded. The meeting was a great success, and we thank all of the attendees for contributing to interesting, thought-provoking, and engaging discussions and presentations.
APCAM 2019 will be held on November 14, 2019 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The Call for Papers will be issued in early June, 2019, and more details will be posted here as they become available. We look forward to seeing you there!
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 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 to authors, can be found on the journal website.
