The Annual Meeting of the Society for Computers in Psychology (SCiP) takes place one day before the main conference of the Psychonomic Society. Details about location and hotel can be found on the Psychonomic Society website. SCiP 2018 will take place Nov. 15th in New Orleans, organized by new SCiP President Chris Westbury (U. Alberta). The theme for this year is "One law to rule them all: Statistical learning as psychological explanation". Professors Paul Thagard (University of Waterloo), Marc Brysbaert (Ghent University), and Jon Willits (University of California, Riverside) will be joining our president in giving talks during the President's symposium. Our keynote speaker this year will be Professor Harald Baayen of the University of Tübingen and University of Alberta.

SCiP Through Time
Presentations at SCiP have led to groundbreaking and influential papers. Many of these have been published in the Psychonomic Society journal Behavior Research Methods (BRM). Each year BRM hosts a special issue of papers from SCiP presentations. Here is a sample of some major papers presented at SCiP and published in BRM. Together, they reflect thousands of citations, and broad influence on the field of psychological science.
