Warren Meck’s profound impact on the field of timing and time
perception spanned four decades. From the 1980s through the 2010s, he
and his collaborators consistently produced seminal papers that
advanced and shaped our contemporary understanding of timing in the
seconds to minutes range (i.e., interval timing). His research was
marked by creativity, independent thinking, and an openness to
consider and incorporate ideas from other domains. He also facilitated
the communication and transmission of ideas among researchers using
animal models and those using humans, resulting in a richer
conceptualization of the cognitive and neural mechanisms of interval

Warren helped the study of ‘timing and time perception’ and inspired
the “timing community” in numerous ways. We devote this special issue
to him and welcome interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary submissions
“from fields as diverse as cognitive science, computer science,
economics, philosophy, psychology, robotics, and neuroscience … to
name just a few.” (Meck, Vatakis, & van Rijn, 2014). The submissions
can be opinion papers, brief reports, new research papers, and review
articles. For a limited time, free OA will be provided for authors
without access to funding.

Submission procedure:
1. Full paper submission by January 21st, 2022.
Instructions for submission: The submission website is located at:
