ROUND 1: Call for proposals to be submitted for presentations
Individual Paper Presentations
This refers to individual papers on research study or documentation of psychological practice. These presentations will be clustered into a maximum of four papers per session (about 15 minutes per presentation) based on a common theme. To facilitate the grouping into clusters, please take care in providing relevant keywords in your abstract submission. For presentations with multiple authors, kindly designate a main or primary presenter.
FIRST early bird acceptances will be sent on 1 November 2016 to allow extra time to make preparations.
FIRST Deadline for Submissions is 1 December 2016.
A symposium refers to a set of four different presentations (about 15 minutes per presentation) that cluster around a common topic, issue or subject matter with the aim of providing complementary or divergent views and perspectives. To foster inter-institutional collaboration, it is encouraged that presenters in the symposium come from at least two different institutions. Preference will be given for symposium featuring participants from different countries. Organisers have the right to not accept all papers in the symposia or reorganise a symposium should the need arise.
Posters involve the use of a visual aid to illustrate a study. Presenters are expected to talk about their research during their assigned schedules. Guidelines for the poster size and content will be given to accepted papers.
These aim to teach participants specific knowledge or skills pertaining to current trends, teaching, practice and/ or research and publication in psychology. Sessions are typically 1½ hours long and should be able to accommodate as many as 100 participants. Abstracts should indicate specific learning objectives and content.
