We are looking for new OPAM organizers for 2014-2015. Selection of organizers will be based on candidates' experience and nomination letter, which should be sent to opam.info@gmail.com by February 15th, 2014. Please include a link to the candidate's web site and CV in the nominations. Interested candidates are encouraged to ask for one nomination from a researcher who knows them well. Criteria for the selection of OPAM organizers include the breadth and depth of research experience and expertise in visual cognition (i.e., familiarity with a broad range of object-processing literature), as well as organizational and interpersonal skills. Preference is given to early-career researchers without faculty positions at the time of appointment, particularly postdoctoral researchers.

We look forward to seeing you at next year's OPAM in Long Beach! If you'd like to donate, please contact us at opam.info@gmail.com and make sure to join our mailing list for OPAM news and updates.
