The 42nd annual meeting of the Society for Computers in Psychology (SCiP) will be held at the Minneapolis Convention Center and Hilton Minneapolis Hotel on Thursday, November 15th, 2012, before the opening of the annual meeting of the Psychonomic Society. We are excited to announce the events that will be part of this year’s program:
Keynote Speaker. Dr. Brian MacWhinney from Carnegie Mellon University will be giving our keynote address this year on “Using the Web to study real-life language learning: measures, experiments, models, tutors, and tours.”
Presidential Symposium organized by Ping Li. Innovative Technologies and the Science of Learning: Language Acquisition by Children and Adults.
Program information for the 2012 Conference. Please refer to the Program web page under Sessions/Events.
Special Issue of Behavioral Research Methods (BRM). Conference presenters (both spoken and poster presentations) are invited to submit articles based on presentations at the SCiP meeting to a special issue of Behavior Research Methods, the official journal of the SCiP. The September 2012 issue of Behavior Research Methods will feature the 2011 SCiP conference. Although papers submitted to the special issue go through the BRM normal review process, this review process and time to publication is greatly accelerated. As such, this is an excellent opportunity to get your important research published in a timely fashion. This is one of the important perks for attending the conference. Submissions should be prepared according to the guidelines of BRM, which can be found at here, and submitted through the BRM submission portal. It is important to indicate that the submission is for the “SCiP Issue.” The deadline for article submission is December 31st, 2012.
