Welcome message

MathPsych / ICCM /EMPG 2023 in Amsterdam, July 18 - July 21

Dear colleagues,

Registration is now open for the 56th Annual Meeting of the Society for Mathematical Psychology (MathPsych) and the 21st International Conference on Cognitive Modeling (ICCM) at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The conference is hosted in cooperation with the European Mathematical Psychology Group (EMPG). This year will feature approximately 200 submitted talks showcasing leading research on mathematical and computational theories of human cognition. In addition, we welcome keynote speakers Prof. Mateja Jamnik, Prof. Birte Forstmann, and 2022 Estes Early Career Award Winner Dr. Adam Osth. 

Please register for the conference via the website portal.

Registration fees are:
  • Regular SMP Member Registration | $325
  • Non-member Registration | $375
  • Trainee Member Registration | $210

Register early for the early bird discount of $50! Early bird registration is available until June 30th, 2023.

Note that registration costs are in USD and not Euros, due to the location of the societies' payment systems. Registration includes access to all conference sessions and coffee breaks. Meals are not included, however there are plenty of restaurant and to-go options near the conference location on the University of Amsterdam Roeterseiland campus, including the university canteen. 

Conference registration is heavily discounted for registered Society for Mathematical Psychology trainee members, with only $20 for a 5-year membership. Membership in the Society for Mathematical Psychology can be purchased through your user profile. Please allow for your membership to be confirmed for the adjusted member registration prices to show on your profile.

You are also invited to become a member of the ICCM Society, which will allow ICCM to give out awards and engage in advocacy activities. ICCM Society membership can be purchased as a conference registration add-on.

We invite you to join us for the conference dinner, including a pre-dinner Amsterdam canal cruise! A registration package including conference registration, the canal cruise, and conference dinner is also available for purchase with limited availability. Additional guest tickets are also available upon request.

You may also choose to attend a couple of the 7 workshops on 18 July through the registration website. There is no additional cost to attend the workshops. Workshop information and an overall tentative conference schedule is available through the conference website schedule.

For those who submitted ICCM papers, you can update your contribution on the basis of the reviewers’ suggestions by June 30th for inclusion in the conference proceedings. To update your contribution, you can go to the submissions page and click on “Submit your video recording or update your uploaded document here.”

If you have questions, you can contact us at Registrants from developing countries are encouraged to inquire about registration discounts using the same email address. 

For information on accommodation, please consult the venue section.
We look forward to welcoming you at the Roeterseiland campus in the beautiful city of Amsterdam!

MathPsych/ICCM/EMPG 2023 will take place on the Roeterseiland campus of the University of Amsterdam.

Hotels and travel recommendations 

Providing a list of only a few conference hotels is not possible due to Amsterdam’s lack of very  large hotels. However the good news is that Amsterdam is filled with smaller hotels, hostels, and short vacation rentals. We provide an extensive list of nearby hotels below. We recommend booking as soon as possible because Amsterdam is quite a popular tourist destination in the summer.

Note that many accommodations in Amsterdam are connected via a short walk, or a bike, tram, or metro ride away to the conference location at the University of Amsterdam’s Roeterseiland campus (Roetersstraat 11, 1018 WB). Further distance from the campus does not necessarily mean a much longer commute. Areas further away from tourist landmarks, such as Nieuw-West, Zuidoost, Noord, or Diemen are often cheaper than the city center, but are just a 30 minutes tram or metro ride away from campus. You can even consider staying in smaller cities not too far from Amsterdam, including Weesp, Abcoude, or Almere.

We recommend using the Dutch company to find hotels that fit your needs. In addition, there are also many options through AirBnB or couch surfing. We also recommend buying a 2-4 day GVB travel card for metro and tram transit (or check out one of the other tourist cards): You can plan your journey using or Google Maps. 

A discussion forum is located on the conference website here to facilitate the coordination of room sharing among conference attendees.

Bike rental is recommended for those who want the full Amsterdam experience and are very comfortable on a bike. There is plenty of bike parking at the conference location. Note however that bike traffic during the week can be very hectic, and that biking along central Amsterdam canals with cars is not as enjoyable as biking in the rest of the Netherlands on dedicated bike paths. There are multiple bike rental shops throughout the city. Often Amsterdam hotels also rent bikes for free. Bikes do not necessarily need to be booked in advance.
