    Guidelines for Abstract Submission

    Abstracts are a comprehensive summary of authors’ oral or poster presentations of their original research, meta-analysis or advances in applied psychological practice. Previously published work should not be submitted unless updated by new findings, data or methods. The submitted abstracts must contain the title (up to 20 words) and the following sections: objective, method, results and conclusions. Its maximum length should be 300 words. References, tables or pictures cannot be included in the abstract.    

    When submitting an abstract it is necessary to provide a presenting author, who must register for the ECP in order for the abstract to be published in the congress proceedings and presented at the congress. The presenting author is responsible for notifying the co-authors about the acceptance of the abstract and obtaining a conflict of interest disclosure from them.
    Abstracts may be submitted for different types of presentation:
    −    Symposia: 3–5 presentations from different countries, including guided discussion around a common topic, professional issue or research question of particular relevance (duration 90 minutes, including discussion
    −    Individual presentations: individual presentation in a chaired thematic sessions (15-20 minutes, including discussion)
    −    Posters: Printed-paper posters & e-posters will be displayed, and poster viewing sessions will be organized, allowing congress participants to interact with the poster authors
    −    Workshops: experiential learning sessions with active participation of workshop participants will last 90 minutes and will follow a common structure: introduction, main activity, and reflective discussion.
    −    Pro et Contra debate: 45-minute discussions on different contemporary or/and controversial topics in psychology and related sciences.

    The Scientific Program Committee may reassign submitted presentations between formats at its discretion.
    Notification regarding abstract acceptance and scheduling will be sent to the presenting author together with detailed information and guidelines for the presentation.

    Authors are solely responsible for the ethical and scientific content presented in the abstracts.

    Abstracts must be submitted and presented in clear English with accurate grammar and spelling of a quality suitable for publication.

    Abstracts can only be submitted via the online web forms.  
    The authors submitting the abstract will be required to create a user account in order to submit an abstract. The submission form allows authors to store their abstract as a draft, allowing them to make subsequent changes before submitting the abstract.

    −    Significance and implications for theory, policy, and practice
    −    Theoretical framework, conceptual rationale, or pragmatic grounding
    −    Research method and design (research questions, context, participants, data sources, sampling, procedure, ethical issues)

    Abstracts will be reviewed regularly, and notification of acceptance will be sent to submitting authors up to two months later, but no later than 10th February 2022.
