2018 Experimental Psychology Conference

EPC has been held annually since the first meeting at Monash University in 1974.
Professor Andrew Heathcote Conference Convenor
Australasian Society for Experimental Psychology
The Australasian Society for Experimental Psychology was created to conduct an annual meeting for the presentation of research in experimental psychology (broadly defined). Because its only role was to conduct the meeting it was initially known as the Experimental Psychology Conference or EPC and still regularly uses that title. The Society has had a band of loyal participants.
Since its inception the meeting has adopted an extended talk / question time format (currently 15 minutes / 5 minutes) which marries well with the role of the meeting in providing more tutorial style talks than many international conferences.
There has always been a focus on graduate students providing their first talks. The extra question time allows for constructive, rather than telegraphic, feedback.
