Call for Papers

Submission

Submissions are invited relating to all areas of Psychology Learning and Teaching: reports on innovative learning, teaching and assessment practices, as well as theoretical and empirical research are welcome. Contributions to the main theme "Evidence-based Improvement for Learning and Teaching Psychology" are encouraged but not limited. Submissions for the conference should contribute to a culture of scholarship in relation to teaching and learning psychology and related areas.

The call for papers includes submission for individual paper presentations, symposia with 3 paper presentations, posters, and doctoral presentations with 4 contributions:


• Individual Paper Presentations

A submission of an individual paper is one paper with one or more authors for presentation within a paper session. Individual papers that are accepted can be accepted as presentations or posters and will be grouped into sessions by program chairs. Your accepted paper will be considered for presentation only in the formats selected by the program committee (paper or poster).

• Poster

A submission of an individual poster is a contribution with one or more authors for presentation within a poster session. Individual papers that are accepted will be grouped into poster sessions by program chairs.

• Symposia

A symposium provides the opportunity to present research on one topic, often from multiple perspectives, compiling a coherent set of papers for discussion. Symposia sessions are directed by a chair, involving three presenters and one discussant. We recommend that each individual submission is checked for its own quality and its relevance and coherence to the topic of the symposium prior to submission.
