Centered around the topics of Object Perception, visual Attention, and visual Memory, OPAM is a forum that features the work of early-career scientists (see infographic here), such as graduate students and post-docs who may have fewer opportunities to present at Psychonomics. The conference embraces a diversity of approaches, including psychophysics, eye-tracking, and neuroimaging. OPAM takes place immediately before the Psychonomic Society meeting and at the same venue.

Like last year, OPAM is planning to be held in-person, but may transition to a hybrid or fully virtual event as needed. For timely updates, please follow us on Twitter and join the OPAM Group on Facebook!

OPAM runs solely on the support of generous sponsors. Sponsorship rates begin at $225, which includes advertising space in the OPAM program, website, and emails, and spotlight exposure during the conference. To learn more about becoming a sponsor for OPAM 2023, please visit our website or e-mail us at opam.info@gmail.com. We appreciate your support!

We look forward to seeing you at OPAM this year!

Partnership with Visual Cognition

Visual Cognition has been a longtime supporter and sponsor of OPAM. At OPAM 31, submissions that were 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 CognitionOPAM 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!
