We are pleased to announce the opening of abstract submissions and registrations for the Australasian Brain and Psychological Sciences (ABPS) conference which can be found at www.abps2022.org .

The meeting will be hybrid, with in-person and virtual (via zoom) attendance and presentations.

The meeting will take place July 11 to July 14 2022 at The University of Queensland, St. Lucia campus. The conference will provide a platform for cutting edge research across experimental psychology, neuroimaging and cognitive neuroscience. There will be keynote addresses from Prof Gavan McNally (UNSW), A/Prof Lianne Schmaal (Orygen, University of Melbourne) and the ACNS Young Investigator Award Winner.


Abstract submission deadline 20 May, 2022

Registration (for all attendees): $50 Students; $175, Staff

Attendance fee (only for those attending in person): $150




ABPS encourages submission of abstracts describing new research in experimental psychology, neuroimaging and cognitive neuroscience. Abstracts must be written in comprehensible English and will be evaluated on the basis of scientific merit by peer review. Abstracts should report original research, with a recent publication or presentation at a recent meeting (e.g., within a year) of another society acceptable. Submissions should cover methods and results, although contributions with a theoretical or methodological emphasis are welcome.

Please review the submission instructions carefully below.

Presentation Formats


Posters will be displayed and presented during Poster Gala sessions.

Open talks

There will be opportunities for oral presentations in open paper sessions. These will be selected on thematic content and scientific merit. Open talks will be 15 minutes, including 3 minutes for questions.

Submission instructions

All abstracts must be prepared in plain text, in understandable English with no embedded symbols or formatting characters.

Submissions may not include charts, graphs or tables. Please spell out the symbols (alpha, beta, microns, picomolar, etc.) or translate them (mean, chi square, etc.) in your abstract submission.

We encourage new research and preliminary findings. However, we do not support early development of research programs that have no data. Theoretical papers and systematic reviews can be submitted and will be considered on their merit. If in doubt, please contact ABPS2022 ([email protected])


We very much look forward to seeing you all at the meeting.


ABPS Organising Committee.

ABPS is a combined meeting of the Australasian Society for Experimental Psychology (EPC), the Australasian Cognitive Neuroscience Society (ACNS), and the Australian Chapter of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM).


Further to this adjustment, the executive of the Australasian Society for Experimental Psychology has decided that the time period between our normal conference dates (Easter week) and the proposed July date for ABPS is too short to hold two strong meetings. We have decided to move our next EPC meeting to the Easter period in 2023. It will still be run by the school of Psychology at the Australian National University and we all hope it will be a face to face meeting as usual.
