It is an honor to host in Québec, for the second time, the Annual Meeting of the International Society for Psychophysics. Québec is the second oldest city in North America, and Fechner Day 2015 will actually be held in the Old Québec. For one afternoon though, the participants to the meeting will be moved to a newer part of the city where is now located Laval University, one of the oldest universities of the continent.

The meeting will begin with a keynote address by Bruce Schneider on the future of psychophysics, and will end on a series of talks by young psychophysicists. The meeting will include a series of talks and posters on several aspects of psychophysical research, and a brief “In memoriam†section dedicated to two long-standing members of the Society, Hannes Eisler and Bill Petrusic.

We would like to thank Geoff Patching, an organizer of Fechner Day 2014, for transmitting his knowledge, Zhuanghua Shi and Jordan Schoenherr who are taking care of ISP website and communication, and the members of the executive committee. We would like to extend special thanks to the city of Québec and the Faculty of Social Sciences of Laval University for their financial support. Finally, we also want to thank the personal of Hotel Clarendon for the most appreciated collaboration at various stages of the organization of the meeting.

We hope that Fechner Day 2015 will be, as is the tradition, a fine mixture of stimulating intellectual discussions and friendly social interactions.

Welcome to Québec!
Simon Grondin and Vincent Laflamme
