13th Annual International Multisensory Research Forum
The International Multisensory Research Forum (IMRF) provides a platform for scientists from around the world who are interested in how different senses interact and how their input is integrated to communicate with one another. The IMRF seeks to include scientific input from many different disciplines and species with a variety of perspectives including anatomical, cognitive, behavioral, computational, developmental, engineering, physiological, neuropsychological approaches and others.
When: 19th-22nd June\
Where: University of Oxford

The International Multisensory Research Forum (IMRF) fosters research in areas where more than one sensory modality plays a role. Our interests include, but are not limited to, mathematical psychology, psychophysics, neurophysiology and anatomy, development, neuroimaging, application development.
This year, the IMRF will return to the city where it all began, Oxford. The conference will follow the structure of our successful previous meetings: a single stream of oral presentations together with a number of poster presentations. There is a single call for symposia and papers (deadline April 15, 2012) and the organisers will try to structure talks on related topics together. At present, the plan is to have approximately 60 oral presentations, and up to 160 poster presentations
Seeing and Perceiving: A Journal of Multisensory Science will publish an IMRF Abstract Supplement including all accepted abstracts. Seeing and Perceiving will also publish a special issue on multisensory processing (co-edited by Laurence R. Harris and Micah M. Murray) which authors will have the opportunity to submit manuscripts to after the conference.
* Once authors have been notified of their contingent acceptance, they will have to register (and pay online) by May 1st in order to reserve their slot in the schedule.
* If possible, all others should also register by May 1 in order to take advantage of the early registration discount £150/200/250 depending whether you are a student or not. Student means that you are registered on a degree.
* These fees will increase for late registration to a blanket registration fee of £300 (no discounts). Early registration will obviously help a great deal in the planning process.
* Registration includes conference materials, coffee, lunches, and a reception.
* Student registrants will be required to present their student identification cards when checking in at the conference.
* Receipts will be available online, on this website, after payment has been made.
* The banquet dinner ticket will be sold separately for £50 while spaces remain available.
