A special tribute to Jean-Claude Falmagne
(organized by J.-P. Doignon)
The first meeting of the EMPG took place in April 1971, at the initiative
of Jean-Claude Falmagne. At that time, Jean-Claude had the feeling that
mathematical psychologists in Europe were suffering from a sense of
isolation, having to `smooth' the presentations they were delivering at
general conferences. He thus issued an invitation to a meeting allowing
for higher sophistication. From the thirty invitees, all came! The event
was located at the `Maison des Belges' of the Cite Universitaire in Paris.
Since then, there has been a European Conference on Mathematical
Psychology, organized by a curiously rather informal Group, almost every
year (there were even two of them in 1971). In acknowledgment and
admiration to Jean-Claude's foresight, a special special is organized
during this 35th Meeting of the EMPG.
The speakers for this session are J.-P. Doignon, M. Koppen, R.D. Luce,
M. Regenwetter and N. Thiery.
Symposium on categorization
(organised by Y. Rosseel)
A special symposium on categorization will be held during the conference
containing a blend of invited speakers and submitted work.
The invited speakers are: James Hampton (City University London),
Koen Lamberts (Warwick University) and Gert Storms (K.U. Leuven). Researchers
in the categorization field are strongly encouraged to submit their latest work
and to participate in the categorization symposium.
