APS Convention Sessions

The 30th APS Annual Convention offers a variety of session types, including the following.

Plenary – Plenary sessions bring the entire convention delegation together to hear from prominent psychological scientists. All attendees are encouraged to attend these evening events.

Cross-Cutting Theme – The Convention program includes three invited cross-cutting theme programs. These sessions cut across psychology’s sub-disciplines and seek to inspire an intellectual event, creating networking opportunities for a broad audience.

Workshop – Session focused around a specific topic designed to teach participants practical skills, techniques or ideas. Workshops are open to Convention and/or Teaching Institute registrants only and require separate registration.

Invited Program– An invited symposium is a focused session in which participants present their views on a common issue. An invited address is an individual presentation by a recognized leader in the field. An invited talk is an individual presentation delivered by a primary researcher in a particular area of psychological science.

Symposium– A symposium is a focused session in which individual speakers present their research on a common issue. Symposia should have the dual goals of providing diversity of perspective and integrating those perspectives into a meaningful whole.

Special Events – Special events include non-traditional sessions including Inside the Psychologist’s Studio, Meet the Author events, specialty receptions and more.
