CALL FOR PAPERS: APA ANNUAL CONVENTION 2017

CALL FOR PAPERS: APA ANNUAL CONVENTION

August 3-6, 2017, Washington, D.C.

APA Division 33

Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities/Autism Spectrum Disorders

If you are doing research on intellectual & developmental disabilities (IDD) including autism Spectrum disorder (ASD), we invite you to submit a proposal for our Division 33 program. We especially encourage presentations by early career professionals and students.  We will accept proposals in the following formats: Symposia, individual papers and posters.

Members are also encouraged to submit collaborative proposals that pull together multiple perspectives on a significant problem to psychologists and society at large.  A collaborative session showcases multiple perspectives and involves more than one core area of psychology (i.e., science, practice, education, public interest) and reflects interdisciplinarity and relevant aspects of diversity.  Divisions (between two and seven divisions) that represent these multiple perspectives may be involved in the development of the proposal and listed as sponsoring groups.

Submissions for all topic areas will be received through the official APA convention website. More information about this Convention and proposal format and requirements can be found at:  (http://www.apa.org/convention/proposals.aspx). 

Submission deadlines
October 14, 2016:                  Collaborative proposals
November 14, 2016:              CE Workshop Proposals
December 1, 2016:                Divisional proposals
