Psychonomics 2014 – Long Beach, California

On the 20th-23rd November I attended Psychonomics for the first time. It is the largest conference I have attended and it was really interesting to see so much research in such a short space of time! Of course, the fact the conference was held in Long Beach didn’t impact on my enjoyment of the conference…

I spoke to lots of interesting people and got to catch up with US colleagues which is always fun. I definitely talked and ate too much, but it was a really good conference. I presented a poster on my research and my supervisor Dr. Denis Drieghe presented a talk on my most recent research.

It was interesting to see other people at the conference who were also doing Web Science type research, it seems that every year there is more Web related research, which is great! When I attended my first few conferences in psychology there was very little, if any, Web based research.  I hope to see even more in the future. But for now I am back in the cold UK, very jetlagged and ready to keep chipping away at my next experiment.
