Subject: Society for Computers in Psychology.

The 31st annual meeting of the Society for Computers in Psychology will
be held at the Coronado Spring Resort in Lake Buena Vista (Orlando,
Florida) on November 15, 2001 - the day before the annual meeting of
the Psychonomic Society. Typically, the program includes papers,
symposia, and tutorials dealing with the use of computers in all areas
of psychology including research, education, clinical practice, and
industry. Sessions will provide an opportunity for experienced computer
users to exchange information on various aspects of computing and for
less experienced users to attend tutorials. In addition, there will be
invited addresses of general interest and commercial exhibits.

The Call for papers is posted on the SCiP website:

From: Roy Turner (
Subject: Conference on Modeling and Using Context.

The biennial International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling
and Using Context (CONTEXT) provides a forum for high-quality
discussions about context among researchers in artficial intelligence,
cognitive science, computer science, linguistics, organizational
science, philosophy, and psychology. Context is important in a wide
range of fields and applications, and in a variety of ways. The
importance of studying context as a subject matter in its own right, as
well as in how it relates to other areas, is widely acknowledged. This
is evidenced by numerous recent workshops, symposia, seminars, and
conferences on the subject (see the Context Web site). The CONTEXT
series of conferences has a unique place among these these due to its
strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research. The first conference in
this series (CONTEXT'97) was held in Rio de Janeiro in 1997, and the
second (CONTEXT'99) was held in Trento in 1999 (see for details).
