The 2020 Context and Episodic Memory Symposium (CEMS) was held '''virtually from August 17th-19th'''. Health-related safety concerns and ongoing travel restrictions led us to adopt an online format for CEMS 2020.
  
  
In the past few weeks we have learned a great deal from the successes and challenges of other online conferences, and we are working to develop an online poster session format that will allow for meaningful and satisfying engagement for the CEMS community. This will include flexibility in the format and style of the poster presentations, as well as the creation of an intuitive system allowing attendees and poster presenters to interact with one another during the poster session itself. The symposium is designed to be a forum for the exchange of ideas among colleagues working on theoretical and empirical approaches to the study of context and episodic memory, broadly construed.

'''Registration information:''' The conference will be hosted through the Crowdcast.io platform. Early free registration is now closed, and you can register for a $10 fee at the following link: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/bc2xgah3/1. The event will be capped at 1000 attendees, so we encourage you to secure your seat by registering NOW with the password: CEMS!2020
  
 
We will be in touch soon with more details about our virtual poster sessions, registration, and about the broader structure of the conference. In the meantime, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to email context.symposium@gmail.com.

CEMS 2019

The 2020 Context and Episodic Memory Symposium (CEMS) was held virtually from August 17th-19th. Health-related safety concerns and ongoing travel restrictions led us to adopt an online format for CEMS 2020.


The symposium is designed to be a forum for the exchange of ideas among colleagues working on theoretical and empirical approaches to the study of context and episodic memory, broadly construed. We have made talks from the symposium publicly available here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOMaPz0dq9lX3bXK-zbsMbA/videos?disable_polymer=true
