IIT&FM Research Center

Center for the advancement of research on information integration theory and functional measurement


The IIT&FM Group is an informal group of psychologists inspired by the theory of information integration developed by Norman Anderson at the Department of Psychology of the University of California San Diego. They meet biennially in different countries in a symposium called the International conference on information integration theory and functional measurement.

The aim of the group is to expand our knowledge of information integration processes and related research methods in all fields of psychology. The group devotes a substantial part of the studies to solve real-life psychological issues.

Important contributions of young researchers working in the field of information integration theory may be found in the proceedings of the IIT&FM conferences available on this website. The following is a list, made by Norman Anderson himself, of senior investigators in the field:
