[AUDITORY] APCAM 2012 - call for submissions

(with due apologies for cross-postings)

APCAM 2012 Call for Papers
The 11th Annual Auditory Perception, Cognition and Action Meeting (APCAM
2012) will be held on Thursday, November 15 (at the Hilton Minneapolis
Hotel) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. APCAM is a one-day satellite meeting
affiliated with the annual meeting of the Psychonomic Society. The goal of
APCAM is to bring together researchers from various theoretical perspectives
to present focused research on auditory cognition, perception, and aurally
guided action. APCAM is a unique meeting in its exclusive focus on the
perceptual, cognitive, and behavioral aspects of audition. Another unique
aspect of this year¹s APCAM is this it will be a FREE EVENT FOR ALL
The Organizing Committee welcomes not only empirical, but also general
theoretical and methodological submissions on a variety of auditory topics,
including (but not limited to) the following areas:
- Localization, motion perception, and spatial cognition
- Object, event, and pattern perception
- Aurally guided action and navigation
- Auditory scene analysis
- Timing and attention
- Pitch, loudness, and timbre perception
- Music perception, cognition, and performance
- Comparative auditory processing
- Behavioral neuroscience
- Speech
- Memory and source identification
Submissions should include an abstract of 300 words or less, the title of
the proposed presentation, names and institutional affiliation information
for all contributing authors as they should appear in the conference
program, as well as e-mail contact information for the primary/submitting
author. Abstracts will be able to be submitted online by following the
Submit link on the APCAM website (www.apcam.us); this submission portal is
expected to become active prior to the end of June. Authors also can
communicate directly about submissions with the Chair of the Organizing
Committee at hallmd@xxxxxxxx
Each submission also should indicate whether there is a preference for an
oral or poster presentation. The committee will make every effort to
accommodate presentation preferences, though it may not be possible to honor
all requests. Given the limited number of oral presentations, authors
traditionally have only been permitted a single oral presentation. If there
are more accepted abstracts with an oral presentation preference than there
are available presentation slots, preference will be given to papers judged
to represent the strongest contributions, as well as to participants who did
not deliver an oral presentation at the immediately preceding APCAM.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is October 1. While this
traditional deadline is very close to the conference date, all authors are
expected to be notified about the status of their submission very rapidly
after the submission deadline. Travel and reservation information can be
located through the APCAM website (www.apcam.us), which includes a link to
details found on the Psychonomic Society site
If you are interested in attending APCAM, but do not anticipate being a
contributing author, then you can register simply by sending a brief e-mail
that includes your name and affiliation to hallmd@xxxxxxxx Contributing
authors will be registered automatically, but are asked to indicate at the
time of submission which authors are expected to attend the meeting. We look
forward to receiving your submissions, and to seeing you in Minneapolis.
