Call for Proposals - NOW OPEN AND EXTENDED!!!!

Submission Due Date EXTENDED: January 26, 2018

Symposium

Symposia are a series of three 20–minute presentations, organized by a chairperson who moderates the 80-minute session, focused on either empirical research or conceptual, philosophical, historical, or methodological issues. A discussant highlights and integrates the contributions of various speakers in the symposium and moderates questions from the audience. Chairpersons are encouraged to use symposia as an opportunity to integrate related work by: 1) bringing speakers of different affiliations together rather than showcasing the work of a single group and 2) incorporating different kinds of talks (e.g., historical, conceptual and research-based) on the same topic into one symposium. Papers from submissions that are not accepted may be considered for a poster session.

Panels

Panel discussions consist of 3 to 5 speakers selected for some shared 
interest or expertise in an area. Panelists respond to one or more 
questions or issues, with time allotted for interaction among the 
speakers and with the audience. A panel discussion is organized by a 
chairperson who serves as the session’s moderator.

Paper/Posters

Single paper submissions are also encouraged. The 20-minute 
presentations may be focused on either empirical research or conceptual, 
philosophical, historical, or methodological issues. Accepted papers 
will be organized into symposia by the conference committee.

Posters usually report empirical research and will be organized into one 
session, during which attendees will be invited to review the research 
presented and discuss findings with poster presenters. Presenters must 
be at their poster during their assigned time of the poster session and 
may choose to provide handouts.
