Context and Episodic Memory Symposium 2012
May 10th, Bloomington, IN
The 2012 Context and Episodic Memory Symposium (CEMS) will be held in Bloomington, Indiana, on May 10th. 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.
Please note that this year CEMS is scheduled to follow a Festschrift in honor of Richard M. Shiffrin. CEMS attendees are invited to attend the Festschrift, which will begin the evening of May 7 and close with a banquet on the evening of May 9.
A preliminary schedule may be found here. A link to the Festschrift information/registration website will be posted when available.
The symposium will be held at the Indiana University Memorial Union.

Registration information for the conference will be posted shortly. Please check back to this page for updates.
The format of CEMS is to have a relatively small number of spoken presentations each followed by a commentary given by a scientist working on related problems. The program committee aims to identify submissions that highlight major new theoretical and/or empirical advances. Papers not selected for these spoken presentations can be given as poster presentations. In previous years, posters have been a major highlight of the meeting and have been very well attended. The Bennet B. Murdock award will be given for the best poster or spoken presentation by a young investigator, as determined by the committee.
Please email abstract/paper submissions to Patrick Crutchley (research coordinator of the Computational Memory Lab at the University of Pennsylvania) at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 1, 2012. We would encourage submission of a written description of work in addition to an abstract if such a description is available.
The schedule for the presentation will be finalized after the deadline for talk and poster abstract submissions has passed.
Posters should be no larger than 40" by 60".
