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 five parallel sessions), three poster sessions, four superb keynote addresses, 31 symposia, plus a variety of opportunities for enriching and fun interaction. The meeting proper will be preceded by two 3-hour, hands-on workshops on Wednesday 24 June: One from 9-12 by Sigi Sporer on effect size and meta-analysis, and one frp, 1 tp 4 by E.J. Wagenmakers and colleagues introducing user-friendly software for Bayesian data analyses. The conference itself will kick off around 4:30 on the 24th, with a First People's welcoming ceremony and Marcia Johnson's keynote address, followed by a poster session with no-host bar and complimentary hors d'oeuvre. The next three days will have five parallel sessions all day, building up to a keynote, with a following poster session Thursday and Friday. The final keynote on Saturday will be followed by the (limited seating, reserve your place now) banquet/dance.
The Sage Handbook of Applied Memory (co-edited by Tim Perfect and Steve Lindsay and published in 2014) at half price for SARMAC members! 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.” Also available in an electronic version for a very low price.
