Congratulations Connor!

Connor successfully submitted his thesis today and has achieved the rank of grand wizard and M.S.

Congratulations to finishing this large project and we wish you all the best for the future. We will miss your wit and knowledge of obscure things ;)

NOWCAM - regional conference for cognitive/memory research

Every year in mid-May the NOWCAM conference is held at a university in the Pacific Northwest - usually UW, UBC, Simon Frasier, UWW, etc. We have had a few presentations there (the last one was Connor on narrative passwords). If you are interested in a low-key conference with lots of student participation then this might be the one. I have posted the initial announcement below.x

NOrthWest Cognition And Memory (NOWCAM) is an annual, grad- and undergrad-student-oriented conference for people interested in cognition and memory (broadly defined). Planning for NOWCAM 2016 (the 18th annual meeting) is well under way. The conference will be held on the Vancouver campus of the University of British Columbia. The dates for the event are May 12 to 14 2016. Mark your calendar today, and plan to be there. Tell your colleagues/classmates about it. Tell them that NOWCAM is still the greatest show on earth, the best opportunity for presenting research, an amazing place for learning about research discoveries in our very own backyard. If you are involved in an independent study or thesis project, consider presenting the results at NOWCAM 2016. See
