The 2020 Context and Episodic Memory Symposium (CEMS) will be held virtually from on August 16th-19th. Health-related safety concerns and ongoing travel restrictions have 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.
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 get in touch.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.-->
