Submission Types

There are five submission types. Please read below to determine which is the best fit for your submission.

1. Symposia include presentations by 3 to 5 individuals organized around a particular topic or theme. You may request either 60 or 75 minutes, although time is determined by availability of slots. For symposia, it is desirable but not required to include a discussant. A general abstract plus two or more supporting abstracts must be included or the system will not allow the submission as a symposium. The general abstract must contain a description of the topic and purpose of the symposium, a statement of the significance of the topic and a brief overview of each presentation. Each supporting abstract should outline information being presented. Presenters are encouraged to provide or discuss techniques that address some aspect of social justice, either equity, advocacy, or cultural competence within applied sport psychology.  It is suggested that the symposium coordinator collect individual abstracts from the co-presenters to facilitate the writing of the general abstract. The general abstract and all supporting abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings and on the conference app.

2. Workshops provide opportunities for individuals to share professional practice strategies through demonstrations and hands-on experiences for participants. Workshops must plan for audience interaction and involvement. Presenters are encouraged to provide or discuss techniques that address some aspect of social justice, either equity, advocacy, or cultural competence within applied sport psychology. You may request either 60 or 75 minutes, although time is determined by the availability of slots. Workshop abstracts must include: a statement of the specific learning objectives, teaching methods, specific techniques, and a description of materials that will be shared with workshop participants. Abstracts submitted without these components are likely to be rejected.

3. Lectures are single-speaker presentations on research, applied topics, and/or intervention techniques. Presenters are encouraged to provide or discuss techniques that address some aspect of social justice, either equity, advocacy, or cultural competence within applied sport psychology. Lecture presentations are limited to 15 minutes in length, with 12 minutes of presentation and 3 minutes for questions. Lectures will be combined with other presentations of similar topics into 60- and 75-minute blocks.

4. Poster sessions permit members to present research findings, applied materials, and/or techniques within an atmosphere that encourages interaction with persons who come to view the posters. Presenters are encouraged to provide or discuss techniques that address some aspect of social justice, either equity, advocacy, or cultural competence within applied sport psychology. While posters may be displayed all day, interactive poster sessions are 90 minutes and it is expected that the presenter of a poster will be present for the full 90 minutes. Multiple posters addressing separate components of the same research study are strongly discouraged.

5. Panels provide opportunities for attendees to hear experts knowledgeable about a specific issue or topic present information and discuss views in a format less didactic than symposia, workshops and lectures. Presenters should provide or discuss techniques that address some aspect social justice, either equity, advocacy, or cultural competence within applied sport psychology. Panels should consist of 3 to 5 individuals and should also designate a member moderator who will be responsible for leading the session. Panels will be 60 minutes in length and include the opportunity for audience interaction.
