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 19th Annual Auditory Perception, Cognition and Action Meeting (APCAM 2021) will be on Thursday, November 4th. Following the lead of the Psychonomic Society, APCAM 2021 will be a hybrid meeting, with in-person (in New Orleans, LA) and virtual contributions. If guidance from CDC, WHO, and/or local health officials prohibits an in-person meeting, then APCAM 2021 will be a fully virtual meeting. Information regarding the status of the meeting, as well as preparation and presentation of in-person and online talks and posters, and how to participate in person or online, will be posted here as it becomes available. More details are available on the Call for Abstracts page.
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.
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.
