Kia Nobre will be the OPAM 29 Keynote Speaker
We are excited to announce Dr. Kia Nobre as the OPAM 29 Keynote Speaker! Dr. Nobre is the Head of the Department of Experimental Psychology and the Chair in Translational Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Oxford. Her work integrates behavioral methods with EEG, fMRI, and TMS to study how neural activity linked to perception and cognition is modulated by memories, task goals, and expectations. She is a fellow of the British Academy and a member of the Academia Europe, and has actively supported the academic and scientific communities, especially early career researchers. To learn more about Dr. Nobre’s research, please visit her lab page.
Partnership with Visual Cognition
Visual Cognition has been a longtime supporter and sponsor of OPAM. This year, submissions that are chosen for talk presentations will have the opportunity to submit their ultimate manuscripts through a fast-tracked and full peer-review process for publication at Visual Cognition. OPAM talks-turned-manuscripts will be expedited and guaranteed a 40-day turnaround from submission to initial decision (including full reviews). Furthermore, the editorial board at Visual Cognition are eager to mentor young trainees and will provide extra constructive feedback through the peer-review process. Publications that come out of this process will be highlighted as special OPAM papers. This OPAM–Visual Cognition publication opportunity is completely optional, and presenters are by no means obliged to submit to Visual Cognition; furthermore, ultimate acceptance of the submitted manuscript is not guaranteed. However, we sincerely hope that high-quality presentations that are submitted to OPAM and chosen for talks will take advantage of this unique opportunity!

Sponsorship rates begin for as little as $225, which includes advertising space in the OPAM program, website and e-mails, and spotlight exposure during the conference. Typical sponsors include academic departments, hardware and software companies, and other research-related institutions.
