The 22nd annual Auditory Perception, Cognition, and Action Meeting (APCAM) will occur on Thursday, November 16th, 2023. We would like to invite you to contribute your work on any aspect of auditory science to APCAM 2023, which is planned to be an in-person meeting at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square in San Francisco, USA at the same venue as and immediately before 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. To support this, APCAM’s Organizing Committee welcomes empirical (behavioral and neuroscientific), theoretical, and methodological abstract submissions on a variety of auditory topics, including but not limited to the following areas:
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, e-mail contact information for the primary/submitting author, and 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 authors who did not deliver an oral presentation at APCAM 2022.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is September 17, 2023. All abstracts should be submitted online on the Submit an Abstract page, and the submission link will be available by July 17, 2023. Authors will be notified about the status of their submission within 2-3 weeks after the submission deadline.
To support the mission of APCAM, the Auditory Perception and Cognition Society (APCS), and our affiliate journal Auditory Perception & Cognition (AP&C) , there will be a $30 fee for APCAM conference registration again this year (*waived for undergraduate students). 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. For more details about APCS Membership, see the membership page.
Presenters at APCAM 2023 will be able to submit a brief report on their presented research for consideration for possible publication in a special issue of AP&C. Such reports are not to be confused with traditional conference proceedings papers (i.e., they are longer [10-15 APA-formatted pages for the main text] and will be peer-reviewed), but like traditional conference proceedings would not preclude submission of a full paper to AP&C or another journal at a later time (presuming the subsequent full paper included a sufficient increase in content such as inclusion of additional data, theoretical development, or analyses). For more information on AP&C or the special issue, contact Michael Hall (email@example.com) or Mike Russell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
APCAM 2023 is a satellite meeting of the Annual Meeting of the Psychonomic Society and is supported by the Psychonomic Society and FindingFive. If the Psychonomic Society switches from a hybrid to a fully virtual meeting due to guidance from CDC, WHO, and/or local health officials warning against or prohibiting in-person meetings, then APCAM 2023 will switch from an in-person meeting to a virtual meeting. Information regarding the status of the meeting, as well as preparation and presentation of talks and posters, will be posted on the APCS webpage as it becomes available. Authors will be asked at the time of abstract submission whether they would be willing to present virtually if necessary.
As always, you are encouraged to invite any other colleagues you think might be interested in attending APCAM. We look forward to receiving your submissions!
