SARMAC aims to enhance collaboration between basic and applied researchers in the areas of memory and cognition broadly defined. We explore the intersections of the psychological science of memory (and in particular episodic/autobiographical memory) and real-world domains such as....
- Law (e.g., eyewitness memory, interrogation, interviewing, deception detection, judicial and jury decision making).
- Education (e.g., study skills, testing technologies).
- Engineering (e.g., ergonomics, aeronautics, HCI, driving),
- Health/medicine (e.g., health-related decision making, cognition of mental illness, memory training).
- Politics (e.g., voting behaviour, climate change psychology).
- Marketing/Advertising/Consumer Psychology
This will be the 11th biennial meeting of SARMAC. The 2013 meeting, in Rotterdam, attracted 350 researchers and we expect at least as many to attend the Victoria meeting. We plan to offer hundreds of papers (three full days of four parallel sessions), three poster sessions, four superb keynote addresses, numerous symposia, plus a variety of opportunities for enriching and fun interaction. The meeting proper will be preceded by two 3-hour, hands-on workshops: One by Sigi Sporer on effect size and meta-analysis, and one by E.J. Wagenmakers and colleagues introducing user-friendly software for Bayesian data analyses.
The deadline for submitting proposals to present a paper, poster, and/or symposium is 9 January 2015 (but early submissions are welcome any time).
The Sage Handbook of Applied Memory (co-edited by Tim Perfect and Steve Lindsay and published just this year) at half price! This 700-page volume consists of 37 chapters by world-renowned psychological scientists working in a wide variety of applied-memory domains (many of whom are, of course, members of SARMAC!). Beth Loftus characterized it as “A fabulous collection of essays on memory in the real world. The leading scholars have been assembled to produce a volume that is intellectually rich, up-to-date, and truly important.”
