First authors only (others do not need to register)

  • Empirical, theoretical, and review presentations are eligible for submission.

  • Presenters are expected to be undergraduate students, although they need not be psychology majors. Psi Chi membership is not required for participation.

  • Students can be a first author on only one presentation, but may be a co-author on other presentations. The first author is assumed to be the primary presenter. 

  • If you are a co-author and the first author is not attending, register as the first author so you can submit the abstract. 

  • You must submit your abstract as part of the registration process. 

    • Submission of abstracts must be done by the FIRST author.

    • There is a 1000 character limit on the abstract (approximately 150 words). You can check characters at: (spaces count!)

    • The abstract should follow the APA guidelines for abstracts.

    • Type your abstract on the submission page, or copy and paste it from a plain text editor like Notepad so that quotes, hyphens, or other unusual characters display properly in the printed program.

  • Faculty sponsors should not be listed as co-authors. (Submissions are not peer-reviewed and the focus of the conference is on undergraduate research.)
