We are excited to inform you that we plan to host the 17th Annual Context and Episodic Memory Symposium (CEMS2021) to be held at The Logan Hotel, in Philadelphia, PA, on August 16th and 17th, 2021. The symposium provides 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. While we are aware that travel remains a challenge for many in our community, we also believe in the value of CEMS, even at a more intimate scale, to disseminate outstanding research from a diverse array of perspectives. All presentations at this year’s meeting will be delivered in person.
Registration for CEMS 2021 is now open! Registration fees are:
- $385 for faculty
- $285 for non-faculty
Conference registration includes breakfast, lunch, and snacks on both days of the conference.
Please note that registration prices will increase by $50 on July 15th, 2021.

Abstract submission is now OPEN for CEMS 2021!
Our program committee has decided to use this year’s meeting to highlight the work of younger investigators, particularly postdocs and junior faculty. These two groups will be prioritized for spoken presentations. All other groups who submit work (senior faculty, graduate students) will be given poster presentations. No more than two spoken presentation requests should be submitted per lab group (i.e., presentations with the same senior author). All spoken presentations will be short talks (~15 min).
To submit an abstract, please use the attached google form (https://forms.gle/YFCdSgi3exv6sg1y7 ) and indicate your preference for a spoken presentation or poster by Friday, July 2, 2021.
Poster dimensions should be no larger than 40x60 inches. Poster boards, easels, and push pins will be provided.
