Abstract submission for talks and posters starts Monday, January 30, 2012. The deadline for abstract submission is Monday, April 16, 2012. Authors will be notified whether their abstract is accepted, as a poster or as a talk, by Friday, April 30, 2012, at the latest.

Where to submit

To submit your abstract you will have to create a website account and log in. For information on how to create an account, please click the 'register' link at the bottom left of this page, below the login box. Once you have registered you can submit your abstract by visiting the 'My submission' page that will appear in the user menu once you are logged in.

When submitting your abstract you will be asked to provide information about the author(s), title of the paper and the abstract itself, with a maximum of 250 words. You need to submit your abstract as plain text. It is possible to add LaTeX markup to your text however, in case you want to include special characters or formulas in your abstract.

Rules and Regulations

Who can submit?

Abstracts of research you wish to present during the conference may be submitted by regular members, student members, and non-members. Any one person may present only one paper, but may also be a co-author of other papers, or may also be an invited speaker or symposium participant.

What to submit?

Papers will be limited to those in which mathematical, statistical, or simulation methods play a significant role in the development of psychological hypotheses or the interpretation of results. Purely theoretical developments should clearly relate to substantive issues or contribute to methodologies of obvious use in psychology, cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience, and related areas. Experimental results should bear directly on some mathematical or simulation model.

Abstract examples can be found in programs of past meetings, which appear in the Journal of Mathematical Psychology and are available through the official Society website:

Acceptance Policy

Papers will be accepted on the basis of their quality and suitability and not according to the author's affiliation with the Society. Presentations that bridge disciplines and treat issues of mathematical interest in the behavioral and social sciences, cognitive science, and cognitive neuroscience are highly encouraged.
