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.
