Spanish Society for Comparative Psychology
The idea of the Spanish Society for Comparative Psychology (SEPC) was born at different meetings held by people interested on the development of Scientific Psychology in Spain, especially in the area of learning and memory processes. An important meeting on this respect took place in Barcelona, in 1987. The Society was formally constituted at Madrid in 1988.
From its beginnings, the main aim of the SEPC is the promotion and development of the experimental study of animal and human learning. The most important instrument that the Society has to reach this aim is the celebration of its annual congress. Each year, the meeting is organized by a different Spanish University. Though the final dates for the celebration of the meeting are established by the organizers, the meeting is usually held during the second or third week of September.
