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.

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 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 For additional details contact Conference Chair, Dr. Marisa T. Cohen at or Program Chair, Dr. Karen Wilson at
