  • Studies in Perception and Action XVI


    This volume is the sixteenth in the Studies in Perception and Action book series, and highlights research presented at the 21st International Conference of Perception and Action (ICPA) in the summer of 2020. Since 1991, this edited book series has appeared in conjunction with the biennial ICPA meeting. The short papers and empirical articles presented in this book represent the contributions of researchers and laboratories from across the globe. The reader will find new, cutting-edge research on a wide variety of topics in perception and action. This volume will especially appeal to those that are interested in James J. Gibson's ecological approach to psychology, as well as, more broadly, students and researchers of visual and haptic perception, perceptual development, human movement dynamics, human factors, and social processes.


    To prepare your long abstract, a template will be available on the ICPA XXI website. Long abstracts should have a maximum of 1600 and will amount to 4 printed pages in the poster book. Word counts exclude the title, authors, and affiliations, but include all other text from the first word of the introduction to the last word of the acknowledgments (or References if there are no Acknowledgements).

    The number of words must be reduced if you choose to include tables/figures. If you use tables/figures, subtract 200 words per table/figure from the maximum number of words (1600) to determine the paper length.

    0 Tables/Figures = 1600 words

    1 Tables/Figures = 1400 words

    2 Tables/Figures = 1200 word

    3 Tables/Figures = 1000 words

    The Editors reserve the right to edit papers for length if necessary.
