The Society for Mathematical Psychology promotes the advancement and communication of research in mathematical psychology and related disciplines. Mathematical psychology is broadly defined to include work of a theoretical character that uses mathematical methods, formal logic, or computer simulation. The official journals of the society are Journal of Mathematical Psychology and Computational Brain & Behavior.

SMP 2010 Registration and Call for Papers

The annual meeting of the Society for Mathematical Psychology is being held in Embassy Suites in downtown Portland, Oregon. The conference begins Saturday evening, August 7, and ends Tuesday evening, August 10.  The Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society, also being held in Portland, starts immediately afterward on August 11.

This year's conference features plenary talks by Mike Jordan (Berkeley), Larry Maloney (NYU), and William K Estes Early Career Investigator Award winner Tom Griffiths (Berkeley). There are also symposia on episodic memory, computational approaches to word learning, and cognitive modeling in the wisdom of crowds.

A full list of accepted abstracts for the plenary addresses, symposia, talks and posters, is now available on the conference web page

To register for the conference, please go to the conference website. We encourage members of the Society to book accommodation at the Embassy Suites Portland Downtown Hotel because the Society has made a committment to the hotel that a minimum number of rooms will be reserved.
