What Can I Submit?
Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to submit empirically-based or theoretical papers on topics relevant to psychology. Empirical research can be either completed or in-progress, and, if data collection has begun, must have been approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB). Submissions can be based on independent research, or may be part of a research project initiated by the student's supervisor.
The conference theme for this year is The Psychology of Sustainability. Proposals on any topic related to psychology are completely welcome, but students are also encouraged to submit proposals connected to the theme of the conference.
Student presentations will take two forms - poster presentations and 12-minute oral presentations. You will identify your preference during the submissions process.
