The 18th International Multisensory Research Forum (IMRF) is returning to the United States for the first time since 2009, and will be held at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, from Friday, May 19th through Monday, May 22nd.

This annual gathering of the international multisensory research community provides a platform for scientists from around the world to highlight research investigating the neural processes across multiple sensory modalities and their impact on perception and behavior. This meeting is a rich, multidisciplinary forum for cognitive scientists, neuroscientists, psychologists, and others, and is an exceptional opportunity for these individuals to present and discuss the most recent work in the field.  Areas of major emphasis include clinical disorders, cognition, computational modeling, decision-making, development, neuroanatomy, neuroimaging, physiology, and speech and language processing.

Abstract submission deadline is Wednesday, April 5th, 2017.
