  • perception and psychophysics,
  • cognition,
  • measurement and scaling,
  • statistical methods,
  • mathematical models, etc.

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.
