Eastern Psychological Association: Call for Papers

The Eastern Psychological Association will have their annual meeting on March 13-16, 2014 at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel in Boston, MA.

EPA dues for Members remain at only $60 and include registration for the meeting. Dues for Associates (students) are $25. There are no other fees. Furthermore, the room rate at the Park Plaza for a single room will only be $169, not including tax.

To pay dues, go to, click on Members Only at the top of the left menu, and then click on Renew Your Membership. After you have paid your dues by credit card, click again on Members Only and then on Member Proposals to submit your proposal.

Please remember that only paid-up Members, Fellows, and Associates may submit proposals for the meeting. If you are planning to submit a proposal, please do not wait until the last possible moment to pay dues, as payments may take up to 48 hours to process. All associates must have a faculty sponsor who, at the time of the submission, is a current EPA Member with dues paid for the current year.

The submissions site is open now and will close promptly at 5:00 PM EST on November 1, 2013. To access the site, please use the login information at the end of this email. Please be certain to read the EPA submissions guidelines and the FAQ page prior to preparing your submission. As in recent years, another call for proposals for a special undergraduate poster session will be issued later for a December 1, 2013 deadline; however, space will be very limited, and undergraduate students (Associates) are strongly advised to apply for the regular November 1 deadline if at all possible.

Members of the EPA Program Committee have been hard at work to make 2014 a truly memorable meeting. A program dedicated to research in neuroscience will debut at EPA this year, featuring an invited address by Earl Miller (MIT). There will be a number of sessions geared towards students that cover such diverse topics as psychology and law, violence in the media, teaching of psychology, and career exploration and advice. Invited symposia will highlight new research on issues ranging from computational constructivism (chaired by Joseph Austerweil, Brown University) to the cognitive effects of radiation treatment for brain tumors (chaired by Deborah Walder, Brooklyn College CUNY). Anthony Greenwald (University of Washington) will present the opening Psi Chi invited talk on Thursday March 1st, and Brian Nosek (University of Virginia) will chair the invited Psi Chi symposium on “Crowdsourcing Science.” Bernardo Carducci of Indiana University Southeast will present by invitation of Psi Beta. Addresses and symposia by Ed Wasserman (University of Iowa), Irene Pepperberg (Brandeis and Harvard Universities), and EPA President Thomas Zentall (University of Kentucky) will round out the Presidential Programming.

APS: Call for Papers

The Association for Physiological Sciences (APS) will open their submission portal for posters and presentations on October 1st, 2013 Symposia submissions are accepted through midnight December 1, 2013, Pacific Standard Time. Poster submissions are accepted through midnight January 31, 2014, Pacific Standard Time.

Posters offer the opportunity to present data and have substantive discussions with interested colleagues. The audience circulates among the posters, stopping to discuss papers of particular interest to them. Authors present their papers using a visual medium with key excerpts from the papers displayed on a 4′ high x 8′ wide free-standing bulletin board. 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 and are organized by keyword when possible. No audio visual 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 important result (e.g., lesions of frontal cortex disrupt divided attention) rather than the experimental question (e.g., frontal cortex and divided attention). A maximum of 15 presenters or authors may be included with the submission. Presenters are required to bring copies of their papers to the meeting (50 copies or more recommended).

Posters will be scheduled into one of several poster sessions from Thursday evening through Sunday afternoon.

To Submit a Poster — Enter the following information:
Select poster type (Either a standard poster, or one of the special categories listed below)
Poster Title
Subject Area
Abstract describing the poster (50 words maximum)

Undergraduate Research Opportunity (Lab Openings)

The Occupational Health Psychology Research Lab in the Department of Psychology, under the direction of Professor Erin Eatough, has two (2) openings for undergraduate research assistants starting this fall. Research assistants would be helping out on studies investigating the role of callings, or feeling called to one’s work, as well as studies on injustice and unfairness in the workplace. The purpose of these studies is to better understand how these factors influence job attitudes, emotions, and the psychological health of employees.

Research assistants need to be able to contribute at least 6 hours per week. RAs would join the lab and work with graduate students as well as Professor Eatough. RA’s will gain experience recruiting subjects, collecting data, and managing databases. There may be opportunities to present the research at conferences if you are interested.

To be considered for an interview, please send your resume or CV (please include your GPA), as well as a brief (<350 word) statement of interest, and the days and times of the week you are available this fall.

You may send your materials to
