About Virtual MathPsych/ICCM 2020
Due to the global outbreak of COVID-19, the 2020 edition of the annual joint meeting of the Society for Mathematical Psychology and the International Conference on Cognitive Modeling was shifted to a fully online format. The conference ran from July 20 to August 1, 2020.

Now that all live sessions have concluded, the conference is in archival mode. All of the conference materials remain available for viewing. Much of the conference was and remains visible to the public for non-interactive viewing. Certain research presentations and recordings of live sessions remain accessible to registered participants only. Visitors are invited to peruse the Conference Guide.

Welcome message
In these unusual times I am delighted to have you join us at the first ever virtual MathPsych/ICCM conference, the joint gathering of the 53rd Annual Meeting of the Society for Mathematical Psychology (SMP) and the 18th International Conference on Cognitive Modelling (ICCM): the premier conference for research on computational models and computation-based theories of human cognition. In our joint format all sessions are open to all attendees, and cross-talk is highly encouraged.

First, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your commitment to SMP and ICCM, and to our shared goals. While we venture into new territory with a virtual conference, it has been exciting to see the same number of submissions as we receive for our in-person conferences. This speaks to the closeness of our community and the commitment of our membership.

Second, I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some updates about SMP. As you will soon experience when uploading your presentation into the virtual conference venue, we have launched a brand new website for the society. Not only is this website an improvement on the outward facing side of SMP, but it now also allows members to log in, participate in virtual meetings, join a discussion forum, view archived presentations, search the conference schedule, and more.

Looking ahead to the future we are in the early planning stages for the 2021 MathPsych/ICCM meeting and I hope to see you in person somewhere in central Europe. We will keep you posted on this event and all other necessary information in connection with any possible adjustments to this plan. The 2021 conference will host keynote addresses by, among others, Dora Matzke and Joseph Austerweil, the winners of the 2019 William K. Estes Early Career Award. The 2020 awards will be announced at our virtual business meeting on July 31.

We have an exciting program lined up for you, including virtual social events, the professional development workshop organized by the Women of Mathematical Psychology, symposia, and awards – including the inaugural Senior Fellow award.

I am particularly thankful to our conference chair, Joachim Vandekerckhove, and Secretary/Treasurer Leslie Blaha for their tremendous efforts in these difficult times. Without them this virtual conference would not be possible.

I look forward to "seeing" you in virtual space.
