Call for Papers: International LGBTQ Psychology Pre-Conference ‘Preaching to the Choir’

It is a pleasure to invite you to The International LGBTQ Psychology Pre-Conference at ICAP 2018. The conference will take place in Montreal, Quebec on 25 June 2018 as one of the pre-conferences for the 2018 International Congress of Applied Psychology, which is being held in conjunction with the Canadian Psychological Association’s Annual Convention. 

During the submission process, you will be asked to select your preferred method of presenting. You may select more than one format and rank them by your preference. Abstracts should be no more than 250 words, unless otherwise specified.

Abstract formats

  • Oral paper
  • Symposium
  • Data Blitz paper
  • Poster
  • Roundtable discussion

Oral presentation (20 minutes): An oral presentation that will be grouped with 2–3 other presentations. Each presenter will have roughly 15 minutes to speak and 5 minutes to answer questions

Symposia (1 Hour): A complete set of 3–5 papers on a coherent topic. Please submit an abstract for the overall symposium explaining how the papers fit together as well as individual abstracts for each paper.

Data blitz (5 Minutes): These are short, to the point, and fun presentations. Each presenter will be given 5 minutes (and not a second more) and three slides in which to present the most important and interesting aspects of their research.

Poster: Poster presentations offer the opportunity to present your work visually. Posters will be displayed at various points throughout the conference and there will be designated times when presenters are asked to stand near their poster in order to engage with those interested in hearing more about the work.

Roundtable discussion (1 hour during lunch): Roundtable discussions are informal sessions where the submitter serves as a discussion facilitator with a small group of delegates interested in discussing the proposed topic. These sessions will take place during  lunchtime, offering delegates the opportunity to pick a table to eat at by picking the topic that they would most like to discuss.

Deadline: 15 October 2017
