CEMS 2018

The 2020 Context and Episodic Memory Symposium (CEMS) will be held on Thursday, May 14th and Friday, May 15th, 2020. In addition, there will be an evening welcome reception on Wednesday, May 13th from 6:30-8:30pm.

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.

Abstract Submission

Abstract submission is now OPEN for CEMS 2020!

We welcome submissions of abstracts for one of three categories: spoken presentation, data blitz or poster presentation (please list all acceptable categories for your submission, in preferred order), and welcome submissions from all members of the scientific community. We are particularly interested in highlighting the work of women and under-represented groups in the field of memory research, and hope all members of the community will be encouraged to submit abstracts for consideration. 

Please email abstract submissions to Georgia Reilly (Research Coordinator) at context.symposium@gmail.com by Friday, February 7, 2020. We encourage submission of a written description of work (e.g., an extended, more detailed abstract or preprint) in addition to an abstract if such a description is available; this additional information is especially useful for the selection of spoken presentations.
