APS Convention Sessions

The 31st 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 – A 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 Programs– 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. A symposium includes a chair, three to four presenters, and a discussant (optional). Symposia should have the dual goals of providing diversity of perspective and integrating those perspectives into a meaningful whole. To submit a symposium, please see the Call for Submissions.

Poster– Posters offer the opportunity for individuals to present their research and have substantive discussions with interested colleagues. The audience circulates among the posters, stopping to discuss research of particular interest to them. Authors present their research using a visual medium with key information displayed  free-standing bulletin board. To submit a poster, please see the Call for Submissions

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