NEWS / EVENTS:
The 2019 SEP conference will be held March 22-23 at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, N.J., hosted by Eileen Kowler.
A webite for the meeting can be found at:
(1) REGISTRATION: The meeting registration is $125, Banquet is $75 per
person (total $200). We were unable to set up a suitable way to accept
credit cards, so we need to rely on checks. Since our local vendors
need to be paid in advance, we're asking for payments from you by mailed
check. Checks should be made out to the "Rutgers Center for Cognitive
Science" and mailed to: Eileen Kowler, Department of Psychology, 152
Frelinghuysen Road, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ 08854. I will
send receipts by email as soon as the check is received. If you could
note your email address either on the check or in a separate note, the
process of sending receipts will be expedited.
(2) RECEPTION: The reception with light dinner is Thursday, 6-9 pm at my
house, 4 Meredith Place East, Piscataway. It is 2 miles from the Hyatt.
Options to get there include walking (mostly through a park, so not
bad); driving with one of the local attendees (we will set up a few pick
up times at the Hyatt, and will also be able to get you back to the
Hyatt) or cab/uber (the drive is 5 minutes). More details on
transportation to the reception will follow.
