APCAM 2019 Call for Abstracts

The 18th Annual Auditory Perception, Cognition and Action Meeting (APCAM 2019) will be held on Thursday, November 14th in in Montréal, Québec, Canada. 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

Submissions should include an abstract of 300 words or less, the title of the proposed presentation, names and affiliations for all contributing authors as they should appear in the conference program, and e-mail contact information for the primary/submitting author.

Each submission also should indicate whether there is a preference for an oral or poster presentation. The committee will make every effort to accommodate presentation preferences, though it may not be possible to honor all requests. If there are more accepted abstracts with an oral presentation preference than there are available presentation slots, preference will be given to papers judged to represent the strongest contributions, as well as to participants who did not deliver an oral presentation at the immediately preceding APCAM.

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 23, 2019. All abstracts should be submitted online here.


To support the mission of APCS, AP&C and APCAM, there will be a $30 fee for APCAM conference registration again this year. This fee will serve as your annual dues to APCS; 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 APCS Membership, click here.

Once you have paid your membership dues, you will be asked to indicate whether you plan to attend APCAM 2019 and to submit your name and affiliation as you would like them to appear on your name badge. Please complete this form if you plan to attend APCAM 2019, whether or not you will present a paper/poster. Note that while you do not need to join APCS before submitting an abstract, all attendees must register prior to APCAM in November.
