Presentation Format Descriptions

Deadline for Submission
Symposium submissions closed on 19 September 2016.
Poster submissions closed on 3 October 2016. Poster submitters notified on a rolling basis.

Proposal Review, Selection, and Status Notification
All submissions must represent completed work (i.e., please do not submit a proposal if the data are still pending). Non-empirical research should not be submitted as a poster. Submissions should discuss research that has not been presented or published elsewhere. All submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by members of the Program Committee. While the goal of ICPS is to highlight and support integrative science, it is not a requirement that your research submission be integrative in nature.

Symposium submitters will be notified of the decision regarding their submission in late-December 2016. If accepted, submitters will be notified of the schedule for the symposium in January 2017. If the Program Committee recommends that a symposium submission be considered for a poster presentation instead, the submitter will be notified of this recommendation and each author will be offered the opportunity to submit individual presentations as posters in the Call for Submissions.

Poster submitters will be notified of the decision regarding their poster on a rolling basis, and if accepted, will be notified of the schedule for their poster in late-December 2016.

With all proposal formats, including posters, the Program Committee retains the right to request additional information, to ask that changes be made to improve a presentation, or to decline to schedule a presentation the Committee does not find relevant to the meeting or that does not follow the guidelines for submission. No changes can be made after proposals have been submitted unless the Committee has specifically requested that change.

Presentation Format Descriptions

Submission Subject Areas
Below is a list of subject areas for poster and symposium submissions:

 

Symposium

A symposium is a focused session in which individual speakers present their research on a common issue. Symposia should have the dual goals of providing a diversity of perspectives and integrating those perspectives into a meaningful whole.

A symposium must include a chair, three to four presenters, and a discussant (optional). Symposia are scheduled in 80 minute time slots and should allow for discussion among presenters and the audience. An LCD projector and screen will be provided in each presentation room for symposia. Presenters must supply all other equipment for their presentation.
 
To Submit a Symposium — Enter the following information:

 

Poster

ICPS_Sample_Poster
Sample Poster Configuration

Posters offer the opportunity to present data and have substantive discussions with interested colleagues. Presenters will stand with their posters while the audience circulates among the posters, stopping to discuss research of particular interest to them. Posters will be displayed on free-standing bulletin boards in portrait/vertical format (see Sample Poster Configuration). The maximum size for a poster is 95 cm (width) x 130 cm (height) (37 x 51 in). Poster presentations should incorporate illustrative materials such as tables, graphs, photographs, and large-print text, and materials should be clearly readable from a distance of three feet (primary text font should be 20 points or larger, and headings font at least 30 points). Posters are assigned a session number and bulletin board number. No audiovisual equipment can be used.

Like all other presentations, poster presentations should represent completed work. Please do not submit a proposal if the data are still pending. Posters that discuss new scientific findings are especially encouraged.

When possible, the poster title should indicate the primary scientific question or phenomenon addressed by the speakers (e.g., Moral Judgment: Sociocultural and Neuroscientific Perspectives) rather than the experimental question. A maximum of 15 presenters or authors may be listed with the poster submission and included in the program.

Posters will be scheduled in one of several poster sessions on Friday and Saturday.

Teaching Poster

A pre-conference Teaching Institute on “Teaching Integrative Psychological Science” welcomes submissions for a poster session that will be held on Thursday 23 March 2017 in conjunction with the Teaching Institute. The format is the same as a regular poster. Submissions that present empirical findings related to the teaching of psychology are especially encouraged, as are posters on methods and strategies for teaching integrative topics.
