The venue for the 2015 CEMS will be the Inn at Penn, located on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania.

The Inn at Penn will also serve as the host hotel for the conference.
Submit an abstract for consideration to give a spoken presentation at the 11th Annual Context and Episodic Memory Symposium (CEMS) to be held on May 7 and 8, at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pa. The symposium is designed to be a forum for the exchange of ideas among colleagues working on theoretical and empirical approaches to the study of context and episodic memory, broadly construed.
The format of CEMS is to have a relatively small number of spoken presentations each followed by a commentary given by a scientist working on related problems. The program committee aims to identify submissions that highlight major new theoretical and/or empirical advances. Papers not selected for these spoken presentations can be given as poster presentations. In previous years, posters have been a major highlight of the meeting and have been very well attended. The Bennet B. Murdock award will be given for the best poster or spoken presentation by a young investigator, as determined by the committee.
Please email abstract paper submissions to Katherine Hurley (research coordinator of the Computational Memory Lab at the University of Pennsylvania) at email@example.com by Friday, January 23, 2015. We would encourage submission of a written description of work in addition to an abstract if such a description is available.
