Housing: The psychonomic Society meeting usually arranges a conference hotel at reduced rates:

Registration for psychonomics is not required but a TRG meeting fee ($20 for Postdocs and students and $40 for senior scientists for TRG 2013) will be charged at arrival or before the TRG meeting. Most of this fee is to cover the audio-visual costs and refreshment. The final cost will be fixed after knowing the number of attendees.
