Awards
William K Estes Early Career Award
The Society for Mathematical Psychology presents an award annually for exceptional published research in the field of mathematical psychology by an early career investigator. Previously known as the “New Investigator Award”, it was renamed after William K Estes in 2009, recognizing his contributions to our Society and the field of mathematical psychology generally. The award is intended to include individuals who are either students or are no more than six years beyond the Ph.D. at the time of nomination. The awardee need not be a member of the Society. More information about the award can be found here. The 2016 awardee, Joe Houpt, will present a keynote at MathPsych/ICCM 2017, and the 2017 award will be announced at the conference.

Allen Newell Best Student-Led Paper Award
The Allen Newell Award – named in recognition of one of the founders of the field of cognitive modeling – is given for the best full ICCM paper with a student as first author. The winner of the 2017 Allen Newell Award for Best Student-Led Paper at ICCM is “A computational investigation of sources of variability in sentence comprehension difficulty in aphasia” by Mätzig, P., Vasishth, S., Engelmann, F., & Caplan, C.

R. Duncan Luce Outstanding Paper Award
The Society for Mathematical Psychology presents an award annually for the most outstanding paper published in the Journal of Mathematical Psychology in the preceding three years. The award is named after R. Duncan Luce, recognizing his founding role in the field of mathematical psychology, and in our Society and the journal. More information about the award can be found here. The 2016 awardees were Denis Cousineaua, Guy L. Lacroix, Gyslain Giguère and Sébastien Hélie, and the 2017 award will be announced at the conference.

Expanded Student and Postdoctoral Conference Participation Awards
Thanks to generous support from the Artificial Intelligence Journal (http://aij.ijcai.org), we are able to expand the number of student travel awards for the MathPsych/ICCM 2017 meeting! We are also broadening applications beyond Society for Mathematical Psychology membership, so all student participants of MathPsych/ICCM 2017 are eligible to apply.

The purpose of these student conference participation awards is to subsidize the costs of travel to the conference. To be eligible for a conference participation award, an award applicant must satisfy the following conditions:
1) Be an actively enrolled student (undergraduate or graduate) or a postdoctoral research fellow
2) Be a co-author on an abstract for an oral or poster presentation at MathPsych/ICCM 2017.
To apply, please submit the following information:

1) Your membership status in the Society for Mathematical Psychology (yes/no you are a current member)
2) A copy of the abstract and acceptance.
3) An updated academic vita summarizing professional accomplishments.

Please submit your application materials via EMAIL using the email address: societyformathpsych@gmail.com with subject header: 2017 Student Award. The application materials must be received by the incoming MathPsych Secretary-Treasurer, Leslie Blaha, by June 20, 2017. Awards will be officially announced and distributed in person at MathPsych/ICCM 2017 at the Business Meeting.
