ESCOP

The Psychonomic Society Early Career Award was established as an annual award to honor the distinguished research accomplishments of our early career members and fellows. Each year, up to four awardees will be named. One nominee, whose research is closest to the areas of perception and attention, will receive the Steven Yantis Early Career Award. They will be recognized at the annual meeting and will receive both a glass and a cash award ($2,500). In addition, the awardees’ airfare to the meeting will be paid. The 2016 Annual Meeting will be held in Boston, Massachusetts, USA
on November 17-20.
