Abstract: The Experimental Analysis of Human Behavior (EAHB) Special Interest Group (SIG) aims to promote the development of the experimental analysis of behavior with human subjects. The SIG sponsors and maintains the Experimental Analysis of Human Behavior Bulletin, an online journal for empirical articles, research in progress, technical information, laboratory descriptions and abstracts from recent conference presentations on research in the experimental analysis of human behavior. Each year, the SIG also sponsors Student Paper Competition designed to promote and recognize scholarly activity in the Experimental Analysis of Human Behavior. For the past three years the SIG has also presented a Distinguished Career award at the Association for Behavior Analysis (ABA) conference to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to the experimental analysis of human behavior. The SIG holds its annual business meeting at the ABA conference. More information on the SIG can be found at
6. The Standard Celeration Society
NICHOLAS M. BERENS (University of Nevada, Reno), Michael Fabrizio (Fabrizio/Moors Consulting), Jesus Rosales-Ruiz (University of North Texas), Sandy McLeod
Abstract: The Standard Celeration Society (SCS) is organized around the uses and benfits of a precise and standard measurement tool: the Standard Celeration Chart. As an organization we sponsor the publication of the Journal of Precision Teaching and Celeration, host an annual convention (the International Precision Teaching Conference), as well as annual "Chart Shares" at the ABA convention. This will be a convention of mixed feelings for the SCS and its members as its founder, Ogden Lindsley, has recently passed. Thus, we invite you to join us in celebrating the life and work of one of the great pioneers in Behavior Analysis.
