APS convention in Chicago

As I write this, Greta and I are on the plane to Chicago, to attend this year's Association for Psychological Science convention. We'll be participating in a symposium on Sunday, talking about Cognitive Daily and ResearchBlogging.org, but until then, we'll be attending other sessions and reporting intermittently here on CogDaily. We won't be "liveblogging" every session we attend, just giving a few thoughts and impressions of what we see and hear in Chicago.

If you're attending the convention, maybe we'll see you there. If not, you'll get some sense of what it's like by checking out CogDaily periodically through the weekend.

Update: Here's a quick guide to our posts on the conference:

For example, a friend of mine is an art history professor, but also such a big football fan that in his…
Darksyde has just announced a few details about the science panels that will be held at the YearlyKos Convention. One relevant piece of information is that I'm the guy in charge of the science caucus, and I have to organize something. If Darksyde had ever seen my office, organization is not a word…
I’m writing tonight from the currently rain-drenched city of Lincoln, Nebraska, en route to the Yearly Kos Convention in Chicago. Tomorrow, I’ll be meeting up there with other science bloggers, including Tara, Chris Mooney, and Ed Brayton. Most people are flying to the convention, but with my urge…

You do realize, of course, that the quackfest known as AutismOne is also going on in Chicago right now. ;-)

Hey, y'all! Great convention, I am here, too, presenting a poster (today!) on a mindfulness (meditation)-based intervention in a wellness program on a college campus. Will look forward to your Sunday presentation!

Well, maybe some of the attendees will head over to our conference and learn about some real science ;)


Looking forward to seeing you at our talk. It looks like your poster session is in about 30 minutes. Maybe I'll pop by.
