Context and Episodic Memory Symposium 2011

May 5th - May 6th, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The 2011 Context and Episodic Memory Symposium (CEMS) will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on the days of May 5th and May 6th. 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.


The symposium will be held at the Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia. Please make reservations prior to April 4, 2011. You can make a reservation by telephoning the Reservations Department at, (800) 635-1042 or (215) 546-9000 and asking for the special 2011 Context & Episodic Memory Symposium rate. Rooms can be reserved at $235 per night.


Registration for the conference is closed.
