Add to calendar

Working memory theory highlights a distinction between dormant knowledge and information that is immediately relevant, and on the point of being used in the service of some action. At EWoMS X, our theme is Working Memory in Action.

We will focus on relationships between memory and actions: broadly construed, this includes investigations of proposed internal processes that may strengthen or transform memories, investigations of sensorimotor interactions, and distinctions between sensorimotor and representation-based theories of immediate memory. The programme will include 30-minute talks (including time for questions and discussion) and two poster sessions.

If there are more high-quality proposals for talks than available slots, preference will be given to

1) research that engages with the Working Memory in Action theme and

2) research that is complete, rather than in progress. Abstracts will be read by two evaluators to reach decisions. Abstract submission and format

  • Submit your abstract by 10 April 2020. *Limit your abstract to 2000 characters.
  • Indicate whether you prefer a talk or poster. If you prefer a talk, indicate whether you would also be willing to give a poster, because talk slots will be limited.
  • Decisions will be communicated by 15 May.
  • Further details for presenters will provided after the programme is set (tentatively: June 2020) *The presenting author must register for the conference by 1 June 2020 at the link provided in their acceptance email or the slot may be offered to another presenter.
