Flash Talk – A flash talk is an individual presentation delivered by a primary researcher in a particular area of psychological science.  Flash talks offer the opportunity for authors to present their research at the Convention in a 5-minute talk, accompanied by slides.  These presentations can discuss empirical results, methods and tools, or applications of psychological science. The Program Committee will accept 5 outstanding flash talks in each subject area for presentation at the Convention.
