Abstract Submission

Abstract Submission for CEMS 2018 is now CLOSED. Thank you for your submissions.

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 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.


If you are presenting and have scheduling conflicts, please let us know as soon as possible by emailing context.symposium@gmail.com
