4th CONFERENCE ON COMPUTATIONAL COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE
                 www.ccnconference.org

To be held in conjunction with the 2009 Annual Meeting of the
Psychonomic Society at the Sheraton Boston Hotel in Boston, MA.

CCN CONFERENCE DATES: Wed-Thu November 18 & 19, 2009

All three of our previous meetings have been a great success, two as 
satellites to Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting (2005, 2007) and  in 
2006 with Psychonomics.  Attendance has ranged from 115-250.

* EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS: Tuesday, August 15, 2009

Abstracts are to be submitted online via the website 
www.ccnconference.org. 

* Look for an announcement regarding online registration opening very soon, 
early August. 

As in past years, there will be two categories of submissions:

    -Poster only
    -Poster, plus short talk (15 min) to highlight the poster

Abstracts should be limited to 250 words. Women and underrepresented 
minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Reviewing of posters will be 
inclusive and only to ensure appropriateness to the meeting. Short talks will 
be selected on the basis of research quality, relevance to conference theme, 
and expected accessibility in a talk format. Abstracts not selected for short 
talks will still be accepted as posters as long as they meet appropriateness 
criteria.

* NOTIFICATION OF POSTER ACCEPTANCE: Approx. August 31, 2009
* CONTRIBUTED SHORT TALK SELECTION: Approx. September 15, 2009
