Call for Papers: 25th Annual Greater NY Conference on Behavioral Research

Call for Proposals
25th Annual Greater New York Conference on Behavioral Research

The science of psychology incorporates a broad range of theoretical perspectives and spans a variety of disciplines. Researchers are often challenged to address societal issues and concerns; needs which are constantly evolving. As such, research findings not only inform the decisions people make; they are also molded by these very same people. This conference will incorporate research from all areas of psychology to get a glimpse at the similarities and differences by which members of the field are addressing today’s important questions.

Faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students are invited to submit papers for possible presentation. Presentation proposals (300 word abstracts) are due by 5pm Friday, September 20th, 2013 to NYBehavioralConference2013@gmail.com. Review of presentations will begin following the deadline and decisions will be sent via email.

Submissions should be in MSWord or RTF format, and must include the following: Author name(s) and affiliation(s), address, email and phone number of key presenter, name of faculty mentor (if any). We anticipate mostly symposia and welcome full workshops or symposia centered on a theme. If you are submitting a single paper, we will group you in symposia appropriately.

While conference admission is free, reduced-rate applications are available so each student can join one professional organization on October 27th. Conference directions are available at http://www.sfc.edu/uploaded/documents/pdf/directions.pdf. For additional details contact Conference Chair, Dr. Marisa T. Cohen at mcohen@sfc.edu or Program Chair, Dr. Karen Wilson at kwilson702@sfc.edu.

REU Program at Brooklyn College

Applications to the Brooklyn College Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program are now active. The program, which is funded by the National Science Foundation, gives students the opportunity to design, develop, and execute independent research under the supervision of a mentor from our REU faculty. At the end of the program students are able to present their findings at the Brooklyn College Science Day, a department-wide conference held at the end of the year. In addition to mentored research, students will have the opportunity to participate in a course in ethics training, a neuroscience journal club, and a neuroscience seminar.

Twelve applicants will be accepted for the 2014 semester and each will be awarded $3100 towards payment for hours spent in the lab, as well as academic supplies. (As it is a local program, the stipend is not intended to be used towards housing.) The 2014 program spans fifteen weeks from January 27 to May 16.

The application deadline is Oct. 1 2013. Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible!

For more information, please see the Brooklyn College REU site.
