Pre-conference events - open to all delegates


We are very pleased to announce that we have two free events occurring on the Wednesday of EPC prior to Registration and the Welcome Reception. All EPC delegates are invited to attend if they are interested. Any extra details (like programs of talks/activities) will be posted here as they become available.

Event 1
Forum: Emerging research in cognition, emotion, and motivation 
Meeting on Wednesday 19th April 2017 12-5 pm
The forum on “emerging research in cognition, emotion, and motivation” will hold its meeting immediately preceding the 2017 Australasian Experimental Psychology Conference. We invite all researchers at the interface of cognition, emotion, and motivation to participate.The forum program is designed to be interactive and will include plenty of audience participation. It provides a valuable opportunity to network and explore collaborations, to share and hear about developing lines of research, and it will be a great way to kick off the conference.
Organisers: Eva Kemps ([email protected]) and Steven Most ([email protected])

Here is the program and abstracts for the forum.

Event 2
Workshop: Personal Analytics and the Future of Psychological Research 
3-5pm Wednesday
Professor Simon Dennis (University of Newcastle)
In the history of psychology, there have been three fundamental changes. The first of these was the realization that the scientific method could be applied to human behaviour. The second was the understanding that behaviour could be modelled using mathematics. The third was the development of techniques to examine the neural underpinnings of behaviour. We are on the cusp of the fourth major change. The ability to monitor human behaviour and context in the wild over periods of months and years will have a profound effect on the way we conduct our science.
In this workshop, I will describe the unforgettable.me experience sampling system. In addition to the unforgettable.me app which captures accelerometry, GPS, audio and images continuously, the system can stream data from 359 other sources, such as wearables, social media, financial services, appliances and cars. I will discuss machine learning and dynamic systems methods for analysing the large volumes of data that are collected. I will demonstrate the personal memory system that we are constructing and show how we are using the data to reimagine what an account of human memory might look like. I promise it will be an unforgettable workshop.
