Please review the following information for two important initiatives
supported by the Psychonomic Society’s Leading Edge Workshop Program. You
are invited to register for an upcoming webcast of the 2018 Workshop as
well as submit a paper to the associated Special Issue in *Attention,
Perception, & Psychophysics*.

*Time for Action: Reaching for a better understanding*
* of the dynamics of cognition*

*A Psychonomic Society Leading Edge Workshop Webcast*

The 4th Psychonomic Society Leading Edge Workshop will be held in
Amsterdam, The Netherlands on May 8-9, 2018. Details on the speakers, the
talks, and the preliminary program can be found on the Workshop website
<https://t.e2ma.net/click/3pd2mb/7koy8b/jianwh>. Please note that all times
listed are local Amsterdam time (CET = GMT+1).

Although physical attendance at the meeting is limited to workshop
contributors, anyone is welcome to virtually participate in the meeting
program via Zoom (supported by Computing & Information Service at Brown
University; https://it.brown.edu/
<https://t.e2ma.net/click/3pd2mb/7koy8b/zabnwh>). Please register to obtain
any additional information needed to access the webcasts via this link (
http://goo.gl/o7bNQb <https://t.e2ma.net/click/3pd2mb/7koy8b/f3bnwh>). Once
you successfully register, you will receive a confirmation email that
includes instructions. Registrants will be able to view and listen to all
talks and discussions, and will also be able to post questions to
presenters via a text window. Program session assistants and moderators
will direct questions from both live and virtual audience members to the
presenters during the discussion.

Registration space in Zoom is limited, so please register early to ensure
that you hold a spot. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to view a series
cutting-edge empirical and theoretical presentations from this group of
exceptional scientists!

*Questions?* For questions regarding the scientific program of the
workshop, please contact the workshop organizers, Joo-Hyun Song
<%20joo-hyun_song at brown.edu> or Tim Welsh <t.welsh at utoronto.ca> regarding
the workshop. For questions or concerns regarding the registration for the
program via Zoom, please contact Christine Gamble

A Special Issue of *Attention, Perception, & Psychophysics*
Submission Deadline: November 15, 2018

*Guest Editors: *Joo-Hyun Song <%20joo-hyun_song at brown.edu>, *Brown
University*, and Tim Welsh <t.welsh at utoronto.ca>, *University of Toronto*


The overarching goal of this special issue is to provide a dedicated space
for empirical and review papers that advance the understanding of how
cognition and action systems are integrated and operate synergistically.
This knowledge of how humans efficiently interact and navigate in complex
environments is vital for generating a comprehensive understanding of human
behavior and will help shape the design of everyday objects and training
and working environments.

It is evident that the products of our cognitive processes are expressed
through our actions. Historically, the transformation of sensory inputs
into action has been treated as a set of relatively unidirectional
processing events with the results of low-level sensory and earlier
perceptual processes informing higher-order cognitive processes until a
decision is made to respond, at which point the action system receives its
instructions. Given this compartmentalized approach, it may not be too
surprising that there has been relatively little interaction between
researchers in cognitive and motor domains. Thus, until recently, a deeper
understanding of human behavior has been hindered because little attention
has been paid to the broader context of action and how action processes are
embedded in the larger canvas of visual attention, memory, learning,
decision-making and interpersonal interaction.

We seek contributions from researchers across multiple areas, including but
not limited to, psychology, neuroscience, kinesiology, and human-computer
interactions, to share and critically evaluate their cutting-edge
theoretical, empirical, and translational developments. Submissions could
be in the format of empirical pieces reporting new results from original
research, targeted reviews, or interesting viewpoints. The special issue
will have a broad scope encompassing experimental, theoretical,
computational, and clinical studies, as well as methodological approaches.
Authors who are interested in submitting a review or viewpoint paper are
highly recommend to submit a pre-submission inquiry of approximately one
page to the guest editors by August 1, 2018. If you have any question about
a possible submission, please contact one of the guest editors.

All submissions will undergo normal, full peer review, maintaining the same
high editorial standards for regular submissions to *Attention, Perception,
& Psychophysics*.

*Submit a Manuscript* <https://t.e2ma.net/click/3pd2mb/7koy8b/rgenwh>
*Submission Deadline: November 15, 2018*
* Manuscripts should include a cover letter indicating that the submission
is for the special issue, “Time for Action: Reaching for a better
understanding of the dynamics of cognition”.*

Because this is a journal special issue, not an edited book, the deadline
is firm; our intention is to publish the special issue 6-8 months after the
submission deadline. Revisions invited by the guest editors will be
expected within two months of receipt of the editorial decision letter and

*Questions?* Please contact the guest editors, Joo-Hyun Song
<%20joo-hyun_song at brown.edu> or Tim Welsh <t.welsh at utoronto.ca>, for this
special issue.
