The Cognition and Emotion Research Centre, supported by ACU’s Faculty of Health Sciences, is proud to be hosting the 5th International Conference of Prospective Memory (ICPM5).

The ICPM5 will be held at the Melbourne campus of the Australian Catholic University in Fitzroy, the heart of cosmopolitan Melbourne and within walking distance of the city centre. It will feature recent developments in Prospective Memory and for the first time, will also explore Episodic Foresight/Future Thinking research.

The conference will retain the single session format of previous PM conferences, with paper and poster presentations, a data blitz and a mid-conference day trip including a visit to Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary, Victoria’s Bushland Haven for Australian Wildlife, followed by an opportunity for wine tasting and dinner at an award-winning Yarra Valley winery.

The ICPM5 would like to acknowledge the funding provided by the Australian Catholic University’s Faculty of Health Sciences.
