(with due apologies for cross-postings) APCAM 2012 Call for Papers =20 The 11th Annual Auditory Perception, Cognition and Action Meeting (APCAM 2012) will be held on Thursday, November 15 (at the Hilton Minneapolis Hotel) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 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 perspective= s to present focused research on auditory cognition, perception, and aurally guided action. APCAM is a unique meeting in its exclusive focus on the perceptual, cognitive, and behavioral aspects of audition. Another unique aspect of this year=B9s APCAM is this it will be a FREE EVENT FOR ALL ATTENDEES. =20 The Organizing Committee welcomes not only empirical, but also general theoretical and methodological submissions on a variety of auditory topics, including (but not limited to) the following areas: =20 - Localization, motion perception, and spatial cognition - Object, event, and pattern perception - Aurally guided action and navigation - Auditory scene analysis - Timing and attention - Pitch, loudness, and timbre perception - Music perception, cognition, and performance - Comparative auditory processing - Behavioral neuroscience - Speech - Memory and source identification =20 Submissions should include an abstract of 300 words or less, the title of the proposed presentation, names and institutional affiliation information for all contributing authors as they should appear in the conference program, as well as e-mail contact information for the primary/submitting author. Abstracts will be able to be submitted online by following the Submit link on the APCAM website (www.apcam.us); this submission portal is expected to become active prior to the end of June. Authors also can communicate directly about submissions with the Chair of the Organizing Committee at hallmd@xxxxxxxx =20 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 hono= r all requests. Given the limited number of oral presentations, authors traditionally have only been permitted a single oral presentation. 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 di= d not deliver an oral presentation at the immediately preceding APCAM. =20 The deadline for submission of abstracts is October 1. While this traditional deadline is very close to the conference date, all authors are expected to be notified about the status of their submission very rapidly after the submission deadline. Travel and reservation information can be located through the APCAM website (www.apcam.us), which includes a link to details found on the Psychonomic Society site (www.psychonomic.org/annual-meeting.html). =20 If you are interested in attending APCAM, but do not anticipate being a contributing author, then you can register simply by sending a brief e-mail that includes your name and affiliation to hallmd@xxxxxxxx Contributing authors will be registered automatically, but are asked to indicate at the time of submission which authors are expected to attend the meeting. We loo= k forward to receiving your submissions, and to seeing you in Minneapolis. =20 Sincerely, Michael Hall Chair, Organizing Committee, APCAM 2012 Director, Psychological Sciences M.A. Program Department of Psychology James Madison University Harrisonburg, VA 22807 office: (540) 568-7877
