Memory has long held interest for scientists. In July UNSW will host the 4th International Conference on Memory (ICOM-4), which will see 700 delegates on campus to share new fundamental and applied research in the area of human memory. Like memory itself, ICOM-4's scientific program is crammed with an extraordinary array of content, comprising keynote addresses by international leaders, themed symposia, oral papers and poster presentations.

500 presentations

The week-long conference will see and hear 500 presentations by scholars from 40 nations. They will speak about memory and its association with brain injury, emotion, ageing, eyewitness accounts, stress, arousal, trauma and abuse, amnesia, and the science of pinpointing memory though new advances in brain imaging and neuroanatomy.

Media highlights

ICOM-4 will hear a host of international scholars who have shaped modern scientific understanding of memory. All seasoned media performers, they include Daniel Schacter (Harvard University), Henry L. Roediger III (Washington University), Robyn Fivush (Emory University), Fergus Craik (University of Toronto) and Martin Conway (University of Leeds).
