The mission of the Science of Magic Association (SoMA) is to encourage research on magic in cognitive science, neuroscience, philosophy, and other relevant disciplines in the sciences and humanities, directed toward understanding the nature, function, and underlying mechanisms of magical experiences.|
The organization holds conferences every two years, with the next conference happening July 14-16, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. Registration for the conference is open at https://soma2019.bpt.me
Members receive a reduced registration price for the conference and are eligible to submit conference presentations. You will receive a coupon code and link to the abstract submission portal upon enrolling as a member.
All funds collected by SoMA are directly applied to conference planning and organizational operations. Committee members receive no compensation for their work. Because SoMA is exclusively crowd-funded through memberships and conference registrations, early payments are appreciated! We hope you will also consider making a donation to the organization through this same membership portal.
