Call for NVP symposium proposals

We invite proposals for the next NVP Mini Symposium, to be held in Fall/Winter 2016. NVP Mini Symposia are small symposia that are organized biannually, in years when the NVP Winter Conference is not held. The symposium topic should be relevant to the field of psychonomics, and consist of three or four talks to fill an afternoon (e.g. 13h-18h). We encourage proposals with special attention to a topic with a strong Dutch tradition. During the coffee break there will be a poster session for graduate students. The symposium will be concluded with drinks and awarding the poster prize.

There will be budget available to invite speakers (max. 1 international speaker). The NVP board can provide assistance in organizing the symposium, e.g. logistics.

Proposals should include:

  • The title of the symposium
  • Organizers and their affiliations
  • The topic’s importance to the discipline of psychonomics (150 words)
  • Suggested speakers (3 or 4)

Deadline for submission is June 30, 2016. Please submit your proposal to For further information, contact

NVP Winterconference Update

Dear Members of the NVP,

We are happy to announce that this year’s Winter Conference is a record breaker in terms of submitted abstracts. We will sport:

  • 4 keynote lectures
  • 28 symposium presentations
  • 56 oral presentations
  • approx. 170 poster presentations

If you have submitted an abstract, you will be notified by the end of this week (21 November latest) whether your abstract is accepted as a poster or a talk. Please note that because of the high volume of submissions with preference for a talk, and the limited number of time slots for talks, we can only accommodate ~50% of the preferences for talks.
