Oxford University CampusThe International Multisensory Research Forum (IMRF) fosters research in areas where more than one sensory modality plays a role. Our interests include, but are not limited to, mathematical psychology, psychophysics, neurophysiology and anatomy, development, neuroimaging, application development.

This year, the IMRF will return to the city where it all began, Oxford. The conference will follow the structure of our successful previous meetings: a single stream of oral presentations together with a number of poster presentations. There is a single call for symposia and papers (deadline April 15, 2012) and the organisers will try to structure talks on related topics together. At present, the plan is to have approximately 60 oral presentations, and up to 160 poster presentations

Seeing and Perceiving: A Journal of Multisensory Science will publish an IMRF Abstract Supplement including all accepted abstracts. Seeing and Perceiving will also publish a special issue on multisensory processing (co-edited by Laurence R. Harris and Micah M. Murray) which authors will have the opportunity to submit manuscripts to after the conference.
