We are pleased to invite submissions to participate in a joint conference on Synesthesia and Cross-modal Perception organized jointly by the UK Synaesthesia Association and American Synesthesia Association, Inc. The full program will be announced in January 2024.

The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of the latest findings on synesthesia, its mediation, and relevance to cross-modal perception. We welcome talks from synesthetes, researchers, and all others with a professional or general interest. Relevant topics include synesthesia, a presentation of visual artwork, audio compositions, a reading, as well as a first-hand account of synesthesia, lessons for cross-modal processing and integration, and lessons from sensory substitution.

For those wishing to present:

Please submit your abstract of 300 words or less, together with a list of any co-authors and your and their affiliations. Also include your name, email address, telephone contact number, and a short resume (no more than two pages) or web-link to same. Please list any audio-visual equipment you might require for your presentation.

Plan to limit your presentation to 20 minutes (not including an additional 5–10 minutes for Questions & Answers). There may be both poster and paper sessions at the conference. Please indicate your preference for being scheduled as a poster or paper.

The number of presentation slots will be limited, so there is no guarantee that a submission can be accepted. For Paper submissions that cannot be scheduled, there may be a poster option. Please indicate your preference for a Paper or Poster. Proposals for a Workshop panel can be submitted. Individuals are urged to attend even if they are not making a presentation.

DEADLINE for Abstract Submission: EXTENDED TO December 8, 2023
