About Us

OPAM is a conference dedicated to issues in object perception, attention, memory and other areas of visual cognition. It takes place, each year, on the first day of the meeting of the Psychonomic Society. This year's OPAM will be held in St. Louis, MO on Thursday, November 18th.

OPAM is intended as a forum primarily for scientists early in their careers, such as graduate students or post docs. It represents an excellent opportunity to present one's work to a large audience mainly drawn from the Psychonomics community. We would strongly like to encourage submissions from anyone who does not yet have the opportunity to present at Psychonomics. We would furthermore like to emphasize that the conference embraces a diversity of approaches to the study of object perception and memory. Such approaches can include, for example, psychophysics, developmental psychology, or neuroscience.
