Registration is open for Australasian Mathematical Psychology Conference

The 2021 meeting of the Australasian Mathematical Psychology Conference (AMPC) will take place on 11 and 12 February 2021. Owing to COVID-19 restrictions, AMPC 2021 will occur in a hybrid in-person and online format using an innovative 'flipped classroom' approach. Our aim for the shorter-than-usual meeting is to minimise the time spent watching talks and maximise the time available for discussion and scholarly interaction in sorely-missed in-person events throughout 2020. We're monitoring the current COVID situation in NSW and will announce in due course if any changes are required to the conference format.

All talks for AMPC 2021 will be pre-recorded at any length up to 15 minutes, available for viewing prior to the conference. Live at the conference venue in Newcastle NSW, we will host blitz-style 'reminder' talks for all presentations, no more than 3 minutes per talk, with extended time allocated for discussion. Virtual attendance throughout the conference will be available for attendees who are unable to travel to Newcastle.

Conference registration for in-person attendance is AUD 135, which includes catering for the 1.5 days of the conference. Registration fees will be waived for PhD students, who can attend AMPC 2021 in-person for no cost (caveat: we have a maximum number, though admittedly it is quite high). We acknowledge the generous support of the NSW Government Chief Scientist and Engineer and the Faculty of Science, University of Newcastle, who made this possible.

Conference registration for virtual (remote) attendance is AUD 20 for academics. Virtual attendance is free for PhD students, though registration is still required.

There will not be an official in-person conference dinner owing to COVID-19 restrictions on venues. In its place, AMPC 2021 will host an informal, outdoor gathering to take in the beautiful sites of Newcastle! This will take place on the evening of Thursday 11 February and all attendees are welcome.
Registration and abstract submission are now be available on the conference website at (click here to see the virtual conference venue). Important dates to note in your calendars are:
  • Abstract submission closes Friday 22 January 2021.
  • Conference registration closes Friday 29 January 2021. Owing to strict COVID-19 regulations, we cannot accept late registration for in-person attendance.
